Massive and very beautiful Cathedral. You have to pay to go in but it is worth it. Similar to the large cathedrals seen through Europe with beautiful altar, stained glass etc

Definitely a top attraction in Barcelona. We love touring through old churches and this one ranks up there. You can go up to the top and see a great view of the city. Notice, they do not allow tank tops or very short shorts.

Barcelona Cathedral is an old cathedral built in the 14th century. It is fabulous and beautiful as viewed from external to internal angles. It is focal point for the local residents from different perspective range from social, cultural to religious activities. Highly recommended.

This was not even on our list of attractions but since we were staying nearby, we visited. The cathedral from the outside is beautiful but the view of the inside is phenomenal. Just seeing the pipe organ is worth the visit alone.

Barcelona Cathedral is impressive, but it is not one of the great cathedrals of Europe, in fact I don't think it would be near the top of anyone's list. Having said that, there are interesting attractions here: you can take the elevator to the roof...More

A pompous medieval relic, this gothic cathedral (entrance fee is €7) is a dark, gloomy place. It makes you appreciate Gaudí and his Basilica even more. The windows block out a lot of daylight. The side chapels all have heavy black iron gates in front...More

We loved seeing this church - only disappointment was the closure without notice on a Sunday with no information at the entrance to advise of this. Great performers outside and coffee across the street

Beautiful Barcelona Cathedral with free entrance. For EUR 3 you can take an elevator to the roof top for a skyline view of the city of Barcelona.

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.
