This is a very nice baroque-style Basilica and well worth a visit. It's free to enter but in order to have a chance to walk around and see it all, you should plan your visit to avoid the mass times (which are quite frequent!). The hours are posted at the entrance.

It is one of the best known of the Spanish churches. A very large building. Nice interior and impressive silhouette. Try having a look at it from the oposite side of the Ebro river.

This is a stunning Basilica with a multi-colored, tile roof. It has four corner towers and you can take an elevator up one of them to see some stunning views of the city and the Basilica from above. If you want, you can climb a few flights of stairs for an even better view.

The basilica is the main symbol of Zaragoza and it's beautiful as the central piece of the city. Inside there's plenty of saints to worship and you can walk around for 20 min without a problem. However it's more stoic from the outside and the church bells are worth listening to.

This building is stunning inside and out. No charge to visit, and there are treasures within. An absolute must-do if you're in Zaragoza, it's on the main square and is awesome.

We visited in the middle of a mass. The acoustics during the sermon was incredible. The singing was enchanting.....and the cathedral itself will take your breath away.
