only 4 euro each entry so reasonable, usual art & religious artifacts, quite dark, so a little oppressive. Decent view from the roof if you are prepared to queue. Architecture & furniture more impressive than the decoration, I dont know if it is me, but...More

Beautiful and amazing cathedral - a must visit whilst you are in Barcelona. The architecture is sensational and you may worship inside should you want to

A good example of a Gothic Cathedral but after the Sagrada Familia it was hard to get excited. Very kind of them to supply scarves to cover legs. Roof terrace not worth the 3 euros. Pleased we Came in the morning with free entrance

Go early to avoid big crowd. There are 2 section of the church, the normal indoor one, and the outdoor part which has gooses. We spent a good 30minutes explore the chuch as there are many detail work and arts in it.

This was my favorite cathedral in Barcelona. I enjoyed this much more than Sagrada. If you only have time for one. This one is a must.

The interior is really beautiful and the cloisters are cool too. You can go up on the roof for 3€ and the views up top are amazing. Definitely recommend doing that - it was the highlight of the tour.

Robust rather than elegant in the style of Northern Europe's Gothic cathedrals, this is a fine (and free) place to visit in the center of downtown Barcelona. There's a fast entrance line for worshipers and a slower one for tourists but neither line was long...More

The issue we had was that it was difficult to get in when they were having an actual service---maybe the site is addressing open times when there is no religious service going on.
