A stunning building in the centre of the city! I loved the square in front of Pilar and the small cafeterias!

It's just mind blowing to wander around in such a huge collection of wealth in one building. It was free entry and well worth a visit.

One of the most amazing and beautiful basilicas in the world. With ceiling pained by Goya and ornate decorations and statues it is quite overwhelming and difficult to take in all you see in one visit. Highly recommend and will be heading back at night to see it in its night time splendour from the outside.

This beautiful basilica was a nice surprise on our stopover in Zaragoza! We walked past the basilica on our after dinner walk and we were not disappointed! Would definitely recommend to see the outside at night on one of the bridges. Magical! We went inside the next day. The inside is jaw droppingly beautiful. Free to walk inside, and well... More

The story of the lady is incredible. This is still very much a working cathedral. Visitors should definitely ascend the tower for a wonderful view of the city.

The basilica has a very different design than any other basilica I have seen. The wood work and the paintings on the ceiling were very beautiful.

First walk part way across the bridge over the river for a view of the outside. Then walk through, including a visit to the tower by elevator for great views of the church and of the city. I would air kiss the pillar, if you want to stand in line to see it, rather than actually kissing it. I wonder... More

Incredible baroque interior. Spectacular from the outside as well. Beautifully lit up at night. Apparently it is the second most visited church in Spain. Masses every hour on Sunday except during the siesta.

The Basilica dominates the northern edge of the city, between the river and Plaza del Pilar (Zaragoza's version of the Plaza Mayor) and from the outside it is an impressive sight, especially the tiled roofs. Inside it's massive, with some nice features, but we preferred the nearby Cathedral when we visited it later. You have to visit when you go... More
