A very pleasant Roman Catholic Cathedral located in the centre of Barcelona placed on a beautiful Spanish square. Strongly recommend a visit.

Magnificent and ornate cathedral which is a must see in Barcelona. Entry is free but there is a charge in certain parts. A dress code applies (sleeves etc) but it is not excessive. Allow yourself plenty of time and have a guidebook, this place is...More

The first timers of Barcelona, they can easily be easily mistaken about cathedral de Barcelona to be sagrada familia atleast from the outside. Cathedral de Barcelona is a great free attraction. Specially loved the roof top view that takes only 3 euros to reach to.

If you wear shorts and short sleeve-shirts, they will deny you entrance to the Cathedral. So dress appropriately. It was my first visit to a Cathedral in Europe, it was a good start. It was beautiful!

This cathedral is in the Gothic quarter and it has free entry after 5pm but restricted entry to some places inside. Although it looks great, it is just like any other cathedral. You can spend some time here.

My family enjoyed touring the old church. Would probably would have liked it better if had a guide walking with me telling me about things.

Although the facade is newer, the main part of the cathedral is a few hundred years old. Fantastically ornate side-chapels in the main building, and a wonderful courtyard to the side where they keep goldfish and geese - the official "guard" geese!

Definitely the roof... got amazing panoramic views. Not too expensive and certainly a cheaper option than the cable cars you can take over the city.

I am confused after reading the reviews as some people are saying entrance is free where others say there is a fee. Can you please help. Also, a friend told me to get a ticket in advance as she queued for an hour or more. Where can I buy tickets?

We visited the Cathedral early one evening, and there was no queue at all. Entry is free much of the time, apart from the roof and choir, for which there is a charge. It can't recall how much it was, but only a couple of... More
