“Quite Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Simply Amazing! The tiled domes were quite unique and the stained glass windows, statuery and history is mind-boggling.
The Square outside has some lovely dining options, a modern and quite unique waterfall feature and all are amazing at night under floodlight.

“Impressing cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The Basilica del Pilar is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever seen. The view is fantastic, especially from across de Ebro river, during night time.
If you happen to be there in the week of the 12th of October, they have a big festivity, where people from around the world bring flowers to the Lady Pilar, parading through the city in their national-specific costumes.
And have I told you about the Plaza in front of the cathedral? Perfect for photos and walks.

Truly a brilliant experience. You are surrounded by extraordinary beauty of history and true craftsmanship. Something that is just not seen today. You have to see it to appreciate it.

“Beautiful”

If you're in Zaragoza, it's a must-see. Be aware that masses are frequent so plan to be quiet during your visit.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Looked great from outside, in the square and was lovely to visit. Not allowed to take pictures inside - but they will sell them to you. Also be careful - you may be told off if you talk inside - unless you are a VIP - when you can do what you like, as on the day we visited at the start of the Pilar it was full of them all chattering loudly. The next day, we saw a couple talking to each other who were then castigated.
