Definitely worth a visit in Barcelona. Just be sure to cover up well as they are *very* strict on dress code, and unlike similar places I've visited there are oddly no cover-ups available to borrow or buy.. Turns out this was lucky for us as going away for my friend to find a shawl and coming back again took us... More

I expected to pay to go to the Gaudi Cathedral but didn't expect to pay here ( 7 euros each). Impressive in a specific style. A lift can take you to a view from the roof- cold at this time of year!

It's a beautiful cathedral. Around Christmas time they have the Christmas markets outside so it's really cool to go visit and do some shopping afterward.

The €7 entry fee is definitely worth it. The cathedral is beautiful and the views from the roof are stunning. Sadly we missed the geese. I'm not sure how, but we did...don't make the same mistake! I would say that this is an essential part of your trip to Barcelona. Cheap and central, or only takes 30 mins or so.

For 7 euros this is a wonderful rich attraction . One of the oldest structures in town this place is well preserved and simply awesome . Your ticket also gets you up to the roof to walk around for views of the city

This catherdral might be overshadowed by the Sagrada Familia but it is still worth a visit. The cathedral is beautiful and has great features. For the entrance fee you can also get a lift to the roof which gives you great views over the city. It also has an interesting cloisters!

A 7 euro entrance fee was insisted on. Pretty steep for what is a place of worship. Impressive interior space though.

The interior doesn't really live up to the setting of the main entrance and exterior, the highlight for me was the partly open air cloister with fountain, trees and geese. If planning a visit I would suggest early morning or in the evening as you will gain free entrance rather than pay the rather hefty €7 admittance charge during the... More
