Must see

The Basilica de Pilar is very beautiful. It's a must see. You can also go to the top of the tower to get the best views of Zaragoza.

The "Wow" effect is there as soon as you push the door. One need at least two weeks or so to get a clear picture of each and every part of the Cathedral. So beautiful no word can describe it.

The Basilica celebrates mass seemingly every hour on Sundays. There is also 2 masses on Friday night. The Basilica is the largest church. The inside is beautiful, but there are no English guide books. The tiles on the roof are of Muslim influence (yes, on a Roman Catholic Church). Many churches in Zaragoza have Muslim features (if you look closely).... More

Open all day and every day this is the highlight of Zaragoza and entrance is free. Take time to look closely at the artwork and don't be rushed because there is so much to take in. I just wished we could have got a guided tour to get the full benefit of the amazing art and sculpture. Started in the... More

Very impressive church in the center of the city. The outside is pretty at night, I'd recommend seeing it at night from across the river.

I found the exterior more attractive than the interior, which is expansive but in some places rather gloomy. The ambiance was enhanced by the service taking place at noon. Some remarkable architecture inside and outside. Lovely coloured tiled roofs.

Lived near here for 3 years, a beautiful sight inside and out. Worth a visit and then an ice-cream in the plaza!

Wonderful basilica blending different architecture styles. It is the primary attraction in Zaragoza. We were told that the original small church built on this site was destroyed, and it took about 300 years to complete the current structure in the 1960's. Admission is free and photography is not permitted inside. The alters and naves have intricate carvings and sculptures. I... More
