    Did you know? Barcelona Cathedral is NOT, as many think, the Sagrada Familia. The Barcelona Cathedral is actually found in the Barri Gòtic, but is still almost as spectacular as the Sagrada!

    On arrival - 8pm: Head for the great Gothic cathedral, and the tangle of medieval streets around it – you’ll get lost, everybody does, but that’s the charm of the Barri Gòtic.

    You can pay €2.50 to go to the rooftops of this building. This Cathedral is free to visit anytime except for between 13:00 - 17:00 when a €6 donation is requested (rooftop & choir visit included).

    13 white geese are kept in a secluded cloister, with courtyard & fountain. The specific number is based on the assertion that St. Eulalia was 13 when she was martyred. Source: Wikipedia. Photo: Church

    If the line is to big, go to another museum near and probably when you finish the line will be smaller! The church is beautiful and wort to visit

    One of the city gems. Take time to just sit outside and gaze at the building for an hour or so. Btw the facade and this gorgeous roof weren’t always there :) check out the history )

    Built between the 13th and 15th centuries, but the main facade and all the visible gothic elements were added during the late 19th and early 20th century. Free outside of 1-5:30pm.

    Very simple and very beautiful. Sadly in the shadow of Sagrada Familia in importance, visually. Note the hours it's open and when it's free and when they charge admission.

    So beautiful, inside is even more beautiful. Always crowded. There are stairs in front of the entrance, you can sit and relax, watch people. Sad you need to pay to enter a church.

    The square in front of the Catedral is quite the happening place. I'd highly recommend spending some time both in and out.

    Well worth the €6 entry (13:00-17:00; free other times, but there may be services going on). Do *not* miss the elevator to the roof terraces!

    The cathedral’s interior is every bit as magnificent as you would expect, with a large principal altar and lateral altars dedicated to significant Saints. Read more
