“Definitely pay to go up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

Unlike many church towers in Europe, this elevator and staircase does not feel like a rickety retrofit - it's really well done and not the least bit scary. The views are outstanding and will help you get a great idea of the city and where everything is. Three euros well spent.

“Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013 via mobile

Found this unexpectedly while looking for a bathroom. Well worth the 3 euros to get the best views of Zaragosa.

“AMAZING VIEWS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

This wonderful lift will take you to the top of Zaragoza for the most spectacular views. Just the view of the Puent De Piedra and Basilica De El Pilar are worth it. Only €3 gets you to the top and back down.

“Views not to miss - Bring your camera.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

It was quite a surprise to find a modern lift (elevator) in this place, but it saves a lot of climbing.
Even so, to get right to the very top there are quite a few steps to negotiate.
It's well worth it though - the views are breath-taking.
A good value attraction.

“Great views of Zaragoza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Reasonably priced, good lift and stairs for the last bit. Lovely views of Zaragoza, including good views down on to the tiled roofs of the Basilica itself.
