This is an ancient church located in the Ribera district of Barcelona. The Gothic style architecture makes this church an extremely impressive tourist site. This imposing church has huge columns and facades that inspire awe. The cutwork, stained-glass windows and the carved sky-lights are absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful sculptures also depict how the church was built.
The slender stone columns are famous around the world due to their unique design and they give the whole church a very gothic and striking appearance. The beautiful tall windows make it very well lit during the day. It is best to visit this church in the day as the architecture truly shines through then.

Wow, what a spectacular interior! I love the raw grandeur of this basilica. The absence of 'precious' materials and fancy furnishing only enhances its aesthetic appeal and medieval magnificence. You can see why this is such a beautiful example of Catalan Gothic!
Open doors ans willing hearts. Loved this basilica while visiting Barcelona. The designs inside are breathtaking. It's also very close to a lot of shops, restaurants, and interesting corners in the Gothic Quarter. The beach is also just a few blocks away.
What a wonderful church. the architecture is one of the best I've seen. It's a must-see, if you ever get in Barcelona. Placed on a small square, suddenly a huge church makes its appearance. Visit it no matter what!
An absolutely stunning church with the most amazing history. This cathedral built in gothic style almost didn’t happen. Between money difficulties and the lack of experience of the builders is truly a standing miracle. The vibes are amazing and the church is quite something. Don’t miss it if you are in Barcelona.
Wow an awesome place to visit.. Must see if you're in the city and has time. Everyone was welcomed and when I went in the choir was singing.. It was a beautiful experience.. Lot of tourists were there and so were people who came in to pray. Beautiful architecture and stained glass windows..I didn't have to buy a ticket to go inside the entrance was free.. But some say they were charged. Anyway the place was a marvel to see and I enjoyed every moment I was there
