This place hold so much history, so much architectonic treasures, the Ebro river, the Plaza in front of the Basilica, when entering the church you can see devoted people with very respectful postures, the murals and Frescos from Francisco de Goya, the monumental pipe organ,...More

Amazing Basilica and #1 attraction in Zaragoza. Impressive structure, beautiful from outside and inside, nice view over historic center and a part of the city from the tower.

The exterior is really impressive; the building itself is unbelievably massive, there are many bell towers and the domes are beautifully colorful. The interior is even better - incredible figures, details and much much more. There is no entrance fee.

The cathedral appeared surprisingly grandiose. It really worth to visit if you are in Zaragoza. I was fascinated by altars.

This magnificent historic place is awesome. Both, inside and inside are spectacular. You have a connection with God and with the history.

I recommend to go to the top of the tower! Was breathtaking. They open it at 4pm. I stayed in Zaragoza 3 days and went there every day just to make a walk around. Beautiful. Also you can buy a ribbon of Pilar.

This is one of the most impressive looking buildings in Europe, from the outside. Inside, you get to see half the church, which is ok.

When driving from Madrid to Barcelona, this is a MUST stop. Beautiful church, with beautiful architecture. Make sure you see the bombs that entered the church but never exploded - and climb the bell tower for the best views of the city.

10 PM is early in Zaragoza! The lights should be going strong when you arrive. Just take a bus or taxi to the Puente de Piedra (the bridge close by), and you should get great photos.

Hi John G, I have not but, have talked to a few taxi/Uber drivers who would do this sort of thing on their spare time. In the case of Zaragoza...I don't think is necessary...all the 'old' part is in a ten block by ten block... More
