“Beautiful and definitely worth seeing”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The architecture is absolutely extraordinary and the history is also really interesting. It's in the Gothic quarter which you'll probably want to see anyway so this is definitely worth looking at. The admission price is reasonable and totally worth it.

“Great if you know the History”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

If you research the church a little bit, it is a very rewarding visit. Still cool to visit if you have time and haven't done the research, but you can only go into so many churches before you feel like you're seeing the same thing.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

An amazing structure - worth wandering around the Gothic QUarter just to locate this.
Also worth doing this at night when the church is illuminated!
Lost of cafe's nearby with inflated prices, but it is all part and parcel of Barcelona.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

This is one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic churches. If you have only time to visit one church in Barcelona, I would recommend this one.
They also do tours of the church and let you climb up the roof where you have a marvellous view.

“Must See”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Not only is St Mary's a must see, but it sits in a great area and the neighborhood and shops and restaurants surrounding the church are great. St Mary's is a very different feel and cathedral than the Sagrada and one of the oldest in the city. great history and great architecture.
