I had the impression that most people just visit the Cathedral or Sagrada Familia. But this is definetely a must-see. And it's free entry until 1pm

The rose window is a particular feature of the Basilica as is the splendid vaulted ceiling and the various altars.

First time in Barcelona is a kinda must. But it’s just a church, nothing special. It’s nice and good to have a silent minute inside, and that’s all.

We loved the interior, and the cloister. We were there late afternoon/ early evening, and did not have to pay to go in. Even if you do have to pay, it is worth it. There is always something going on in the square - at...More

Great little gem right in the heart of the gothic quarter. Worth the little stroll and taking a (free) peek inside.

This Basilica isn't as famous or as well known as Sagrada Familia or the Cathedral. It's free and well worth a visit. They haven't renovated this one as much and you can see holes in the ceiling and it's not a pristine as others. The...More

Beautiful cathedral build by the people fir the people. Gaudy’s favorite. Can see the inspiration for the key elements of Sagrada Familia.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

It is not necessary to book your tickets for the roof top visit. But you can buy the tickets at the basilica in advance and be there at the start of the tour.
