This church is absolutely beautiful. And the inner courtyard, including goose well, is both peaceful and inspiring. It is only 3 Euros to take an elevator to the roof - much nicer than churches you have to climb stair in.

Of all European Cathedrals, this is the one I will always remember: extremely high Gothic interior. Fine example of Gothic architecture. Gold altars, all gold. And one very old 1200 or 1400 with basic paintings that are very illustrative of that period.

Beautiful cathedral inside and out - with 360 tower view incredible. And geese and fountains too. The square in front is gorgeous.

Nice cathedral and staggering inside. Upstairs is a decent view slightly ruined by railings. Not a huge amount to see but worth the money and no waiting time.

A lovely traditional cathedral, free to enter and well worth spending time to go round and chill out. Be aware of odd opening hours....check beforehand

Very grey and demure, we visited as our hotel was less than 10 mins walk away. If you are in the area, visit, but don't make it your highlight or go out of your way.

this one should find some time in your busy schedule. There are so much history and other incredible details in this complex. It is not just the cathedral but also adjecent building around it, right in Gothic kvarter.

The cathedral is just amazing inside & out. Great architecture from centuries ago. Buildings like these will last a lifetime, & so they should. Worth a visit if only to compare its size to the Sagrada Familia.

Situated in the old quarter of Barcelona with all its twisty lanes and hidden gems, this Cathedral is absolutely worth seeing. Allow 2 hours to walk through the Cathedral and also to get the lift up to the roof. The building itself is a work of art. The paintings, sculptures, altars and graves are just extras to the story. Wonderful... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
