I actually liked this better than Sagrada Familia, partly because it wasn't still under construction and partly because it is more "churchy". No time to go inside - 15/20 mins wouldn't be enough for me. Would recommend a wander round the gothic quarter whilst in...More

Maybe I just don't like modernistic design, but I thought this cathedral was prettier than La Sagrada Familia and the architecture was no less impressive. Best part is that it was WAY less crowded.

We went here with no expectations and we were surprising shocked by the beauty of this basilica. Entrance is free but ladies must have their shoulders covered. If you do not, they provide scarves for 2€. To visit and see the interior was definitely worth...More

Simple makes this cathedral more Spiritual. A great place for anyone to visit. The simplistic (and less touristic) nature of this cathedral lets you know its for everyone and not trying to impress people.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

I went in July and there was no charge to go inside the church. It was €3 to go to the roof, but it was definitely worth it!

if you are having difficulty getting an answer from the church perhaps you could contact the diocese?
