Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a wonderfully unexpected find in wandering through the Gothic Quarter, and I would highly recommend for anyone who loves gothic cathedrals! It feels more intimate, a bit less imposing, than your typical cathedral, and it boasts a beautiful rose window that is closer and more visible than for your normal. The whole cathedral has a lighter and airier vibe that is very surprising in the best way. You're also allowed to visit the cathedral's small garden - the garden itself isn't much to look at, but very much feels like an oasis in the middle of an otherwise busy neighborhood. The stars, though, are the two cats that rule the space - just another wonderful surprise to come upon!

Interesting, beautiful and full of atmosphere. You need some time to take it all in as it is bigger than first thought and the ticket price reflects that.

Such an underrated tourist attraction. Gorgeous and far cheaper than larger tourist sites like Sagrida Familia. Best bit is climbing the bell tower which was a highlight of the trip - offering the most beautiful panoramic views.

Dominating the Placa it’s a supreme Gothic edifice. A marvellous main façade has superb stone work particularly around the entrance way.

Stepping in is awe inspiring. With a superlative vista from the rear along the nave to the altar, it is a marvellous experience just standing and admiring.

Soaring columns reach for the lovely vaulted ceiling in stone. Stained glass windows bring a glowing light inwards.

A great Rose Window is one of the highlights. Numerous exquisite holy items are to be seen in the Treasury, including a monstrance and chalices.

This church was at the end of the street where we stayed, so we went in for a short visit. From the outside it wasn't much to look at from our end, but inside was quite a surprise.

Inside, the church has beautiful stained glass windows and different sections with vaulted ceilings and little chapels between the pillars.

Located within the Plaza del Pi (Pine Tree square) is a church with a fairly bland facade, However, once inside it is a stunning church with one of the largest stained glass Rose windows in the world. They were setting up for a concert and had hundreds of candles all over the altar - beautiful.

The current Gothic cathedral was built between 1319-1320 and 1391. The cathedral was originally built in the Catalan Gothic style. The building survived two earthquakes in 1373 and 1428, which resulted in damage. The cathedral has been restored several times.
In 1928, Pope Pius XI awarded the Church of Santa Maria del Pi the title of Papal Minor Basilica. During the Civil War in 1936, the cathedral was destroyed and later restored.

This is a serene place. It is big, rustic, and simple, but not less beautiful. The only thing we did not like is that all of the chapels look like jail cells, and that is very unwelcoming. At least open the doors and cord them off so people don’t go in, but open the “cell doors”. A house of God should not have bars and padlocks and chains. The staff is most welcoming and helpful. We purchased tickets on site and paid with a credit card. There is a little museum and a crypt to see here. Don’t miss it.

You’ll find far fewer tourists than the Cathedral of Barcelona, and a much quieter environment than La Sagrada Familia. This beautiful interior with stunning stained glass was completed in 1453, but the foundation dates to 1319, and the cemetery dates to 1074! Come here if you want to escape the crowds and enjoy a quiet church. It might just be my favorite in all of Barcelona!

I'm giving it 5 stars - but only for the giants

Believe me, it is easy to miss these giants. You have to go inside and then turn left, easy to miss but great to look at
