I’ll recommend this for anyone visiting the Gothic quarter. It is quite an emotional environment as it is still a functional Church and you might see people worshipping in one of the Chapels. It’s a place steeped in history and some mystery and quite extensive...More

Paid 7euros to enter in the afternoon which included a visit up the tower to enjoy the towers and views. The cloister had geese living there, making a noise which was also heard from the roof!

A traditional Catholic Cathedral. High points of interest were the misericord carvings on the underside of the choir seats; and the cloisters, which had a life-size nativity and live geese! Also good to see the remains of the Roman Walls beside it. In December there...More

While La Segrada Familia is probably better known and much, much bigger, this is the “real” Cathedral of Barcelona and the seat of the Archdiocese and Archbishop of Barcelona. And, this Cathedral is much, much older than La Segrada having been completed before 1450. While...More

This cathedral is totally Gothic in design and contrasts greatly with the the Neo-Modernist Sagrada Familia. Be sure to see both. This one is huge with 5 aisles and numerous side chapels as well as the typical ribbed vaulted arches and ribbed columns. Very impressive...More
