Barcelona Cathedral - Review
This ancient cathedral was built in between 13th to 15 the centuries. It was constructed by following the architectural patterns of the neo Gothic architecture. The long hall of the church is dedicated to Eulalia of Barcelona. Here you are sure to come across the brilliant architectural works and sculptural masterpieces of times gone by.
According to the experts, prior to the Gothic pattern, this cathedral was constructed in the 4th century by following the pattern of Paleo-Christian style. Even today, you can notice an ancient baptistery inside the museum, which was built in that time.

Barcelona Cathedral, Barcelona Reviews
Sure, it's pretty. But it's just another Gothic style church. Except here they have the modesty police selling shawls to cover shoulders and legs (no refunds) and then you have to pay 7€ entry fee. It's the first time I've ever seen a church charge for entry! For those who read the book Cathedral By The Sea, this is NOT that cathedral. That is Santa Maria del Mar which is close by and free to visit. For a church built by volunteers, it's a sin to charge an entry fee. There are also stalls selling candles and other religious objects in the square in front of the church. Didn't Jesus knock over the stands in front of the temple?

Lovely Cathedral in Barcelona. Walking around was very nice in side and out. I love the riff to view area I think it worth the little extra that you pay for it is very small. It only a cat walk with some side are with benches. It was very clean and the staff were all nice The out side are with pound a ducks was cool .
Really enjoyed checking out this cathedral. They've managed to keep most of the original architecture, and it feels like taking a step back in time when you enter. The courtyard area may have been my favorite part, mostly because of the geese that make the church their home. We also took the elevator up to the roof, which offers a pretty stunning view of the city. The organ is also beautiful, and it was playing pretty much constantly during our visit. They had an exhibit in one of the side rooms detailing the restoration of one of the paintings, and they had the restored painting on display. I would definitely recommend visiting - it's interesting to see the difference between this cathedral and the Sagrada Familia. The courtyard out front was also bustling with people and a few street performers.
Beautiful facade. Lots of activity in the square around the church. Explore the streets around the church. Bustling and interesting area. Didn't go inside as the wife had a top that exposed the midrift. Something to bear in mind when going sightseeing.
It is absolutely not a tourist trap. 7 bucks to see a beautiful church and a gorgeous rooftop was beautiful. The places that charge 25 euro per person for a view are a tourist trap. This one was entirely worth the inside and rooftop. Also it was completed in 1420. Go later in the day on a weekday no line.
