I rarely am comfortable paying to enter s church, but the E5 entrance fee was well worth it. I went in hoping to find some interesting subjects to photograph and found more than I bargained for. I only regret I did not bring a tripod. Construction on the Basilica started in 1329 and the finished product from an architectural perspective... More

We visited this Basilica (Saint Mary of the Pine Tree) during a walk around Barcelona's picturesque Gothic quarter during Christmas. There was no entrance fee, so we bought some prayer candles from the gift shop, which we lit and placed alongside the many other flickering candles on one of the Basilica's many candle racks. Built between 1319 and 1391 (construction... More

This 14th century cruch, it's a lost piece in the heart of old Barcelona, near the cathedral, you shouldn't miss it. This visit it's like traveling back 700 years on the past, and for free, while Sagrada Familia and the cathedral might take all the hype, this will take your breath away with true history, feels like the davinci code.

This church is somewhat off Las Ramblas but it was difficult to find. We even asked some locals and they didn't know where it was. But we finally found it. It is absolutely beautiful inside. There are many side altars. We got there just as mass was starting. The benches are wooden and a bit uncomfortable and remember, these old... More

I absolutelty love this place. Living in Barcelona for six months as part of my university degree I would often visit Santa Maria del Pi to escape the hubbub of the city. An oasis of peace and tranquility, it gives you the opportunity to freshen your mind and go back out into the world again. Definitely worth a visit, it... More

It's a lovely, but slightly hidden church in the gothic quarter. The rose window is one of the world's largest.

A nice Church in the Gothic Quarter just off Las Ramblas. Located on an interesting little square with nice shops. Worth a visit for only a few Euros donation.

Down a few small stone side streets comes this Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi - it's easy to access off of Las Ramblas and is on the way toward the Catedral. Don't miss seeing the large stained glass if you can - there is a cost to enter.

From the outside there is little to attract the visitor but once inside The Rose Window is glorious and we disocovered the big surprise of being able to go up the top of the Bell Tower, with a guide, to get an amazing 360 degree view of Barcelona. Well worth the admission fee and climbing the 256 steps!

If in Barcelona it is well worth a visit and you must attend any concerts they have. Traditional Catalan music the acoustics are fabulous and makes you feel you have gone back in time.Beautiful surroundings.
