Well, I have rated it very good since if you’re in Zaragoza this is sort of a must see. The entrance to the ascensor tower is through the doors closest to the water feature in the plaza (that looks all cracked). We did try to...More

Worth the 3£ to visit the top of this basilica. It’s an amazing view of a beautiful city! There are quite a few stairs to get to the very top and the case narrows as you go higher so just keep that in mind. The...More

The views of the Ebro River and the city of Zaragoza are fantastic from atop the Basilica tower. Be aware there is very little signage pointing you to the place, however, so when you enter through any of the entrances on the long SW side...More

The first challenge is to find the entrance. You must go into the Basilica and walk to the far right hand corner, where you find a wooden door, which you go through, turn right and the lift is in front of you through a small...More

Nice view of the city and the Basilica itself, costs 3E. Be prepared to also walk some stairs to get to the very top. Entrance is from inside the Basilica.

A must-do element to your trip. Unparalleled views of Zaragoza, including the roof of the basilica. There is the option of walking to the very top but the view from the viewing platform is more than sufficient.

A highlight of our trip to Zaragoza. We went up in the glass elevator and went up the metal modern staircase and spiral staircase to the viewing platform. I am normally a bit funny with heights but there are rails to hold on to up...More

We went to the lift to see the view, but the way up was also kind of spectacular with the glass elevator taking you up at high speed and glimpses of the view. Once up there, you still have to climb a few stairs including...More

Zaragoza was an ok city to visit. Small and lots of things closed at lunch time. This was the highlight. Beautiful building and panoramic views.

You pay 3€ to take a lift up to enjoy the windy but amazing view of the cathedral and the city. You can also go up another set of stairs to see even further. Unfortunately there is glass infront of the view but it's still...More

Not sure if it opens on Sunday. There should be info on that in their own site. I would schedule about 45mins to an hour to enjoy the visit. Where the elevator ends there are still a couple of floors of stairs to go up. at... More
