I visited the cathedral for the first time in europe. I felt holy and warm. It feels especially calm compared to other cathedrals.
Lovely old church in the heart of the bustling city. Felt very at peace there and even got to experience the service
The tour was excellent, and you are able to visit many levels of this Catalan gothic style church. Interesting to learn about the history. Brilliant rooftop views of the city (although prepare to climb stairs). Our tour guide Pol was excellent!
One of the best cathedral in Barcelona and have breathtaking views inside... The stained glass painting are awesome and couldn't take eyes out of it...
Old gothic church were you can Gaudi got his inspiration.
