A very average building without a real USP, €7 entrance fee although not expensive does not really offer value, information on the Cathedral is also a bit scarce.

This cathedral was just 2 blocks away from our hotel and we were so mesmerized upon entering. It is well worth the 7 euros entrance fee. Shoulders and knees much be covered. Remember to get in line for the elevator that brings you to the...More

The unfinished Sagrada Familia must surely be the main attraction in Barcelona, perhaps to the frustration of the church officials at the older, more traditional cathedral. But a visit to the cathedral provides the contrast - classical rather than modern, muted rather than vibrant, quiet...More

It was novel to see the geese in the cloister. If you go at the right time it is free to go in, we didn't! Great starting point for exploring the gothic quarter.

This was my second visit to the Cathedral after a period of 15 years and it was everything I remembered and more. The various altars were very moving and of course the Cathedral geese are always entertaining.

Amazing church, beautiful interiors. It's not expensive to get in - €7. The experience is worth every cent!

We loved this cathedral, the rooftop view, and the cloister. Altogether a worthwhile visit. It was very busy when were there, as their main festival was taking place. There was always something going on in the square.

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.
