Well worth a visit so much to take in (headset for commentary) giving you all the information in each room of the Basilica not a spare piece of wall is not without decoration so much gold leaf and silver!!! We just stood in awe at the detail before our eyes.

From the suite hotel in Gran Via it is possible to walk in 10 minutes to the Basilica. It is the most astonishing place and the wealth of the church in a poorish student area is an amazing contradiction. If one arrives at a time outside a Mass and there are mnot too many people you can be invited to... More

Actually with due deference to the Faithful I don't think I have seen a more Bonkers building in my life. Not one square inch of wall or ceiling is not cover by fantastic painting or gold. Actually don't think I have seen so much gold ever. A small entry fee gets you a good audio guide make sure you follow... More

After Sevilla's Cathedral we were slightly disappointed but probably had been spoilt in Seville. In February it was a bit chilly but could imagine in the summer a nice place to cool down.

This Church is not to be missed. We have never seen so much gold leaf anywhere. After the Alhambra i would rate this the #2 thing to visit.

I have visited many churches and like this one I haven't seen. It is unbeleivable ornately decorated. You are taken aback with the high gold altar. You can take an audio guide which can explain all the history behind everything. Included in the tour is visiting the upper level quarters which contained very old relics. You muuuust I repeat..you must... More

Excellent presentation and access to all areas. The baroque detail is amazing. Worth the 4 euro entry price.

Great cathedral with very nice paintings around the altar as well as a very nice organ in the middle.

It's amazing! No other church is as ornate and gilded as this one. Don't skimp on a couple euros. Drop it in and light up the altar to fully enjoy its majesty and brilliance. Check open times; closes midday then reopens late afternoon.

You definitely don't need to pay to go on a tour for a visit here; you can tour yourself. The admission is just a few Euros and you are given an audio guide. Hint: take your own headphones from your phone and plug them into the audio guide so you don't have to walk around with it and one hand... More
