This was my favorite place in Barcelona. I'm glad I opted for the audio tour which allowed me to really understand what I was viewing. An amazing place - don't rush thru it. Plan to spend a little time here to really take in its...More

The best energy i ever feel inside a church! I will never forget this place! And the windows have beautiful creations, with many details. You can find even the Barcelona Team symbol stand inside.

Impressive church that is from the 14th century. My husband had read a book about the church by the sea, which gave him an extra dimension to the visit.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

I went in July and there was no charge to go inside the church. It was €3 to go to the roof, but it was definitely worth it!

if you are having difficulty getting an answer from the church perhaps you could contact the diocese?
