“Awe inspring cathedral nestled in the middle of narrow medieval streets”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

Beautiful stained glass all around and free to enter during specific times of the day. Walking inside is like time traveling to a different time away from the modern side of Barcelona. When you are done, step outside for a cafe con leche, snack, or dessert while you continue to gaze upon its exterior beauty.

“Church”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

The nicest one, and the simplest one, in Barcelona. It is called the "sea cathedral". There is a nice book (a novel) escribing
how the fishermen have built it.
