Great views of Zaragoza. But choose wisely the best day weatherwise if possible. Rates are a little bit high for just a lift.
Whilst entry to the Pilar Basilica/Cathedral is free, it costs a €3 supplement to go up the lift and then a set of stairs up to the top of the Cathedral tower where spectacular views are to be had of Zaragoza and of the surrounding countryside. If you purchase the Zaragoza card, however, entry to both attractions is free. Access... More
Very simple: Greet the very friendly attendant, pay 3 Euro and he will escort you in the glass elevator to the top where you will climb another 50 (?) steps to the very top of the tower and there enjoy a magnificent view...
Last May we visited Zaragoza for a day but after arriving there we realized that it really deserved two or more days. It was a cozy, lovely city. The view from the Ascensor del Pilar was absolutely amazing. Don't miss it.
Zaragoza is my hometown and I had never climbed to the tower until a couple of Russian tourists visited me and insisted on climbing. It was really worth!! The views are really amazing. Maybe at the very top it was disappointing because of the glass. But just one floor below the windows don't have any glass, which is much better.... More
Unlike many church towers in Europe, this elevator and staircase does not feel like a rickety retrofit - it's really well done and not the least bit scary. The views are outstanding and will help you get a great idea of the city and where everything is. Three euros well spent.
This wonderful lift will take you to the top of Zaragoza for the most spectacular views. Just the view of the Puent De Piedra and Basilica De El Pilar are worth it. Only €3 gets you to the top and back down.
It was quite a surprise to find a modern lift (elevator) in this place, but it saves a lot of climbing. Even so, to get right to the very top there are quite a few steps to negotiate. It's well worth it though - the views are breath-taking. A good value attraction.
