“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

This was the very first cathedral my children had ever entered and they were in awe. It is filled with a rich history and apparently one of the most important gothic churches in Barcelona, dating back to the 14th century, having replaced an earlier Romanesque church built in the same place. Definitely worth a visit and we paid a group price of only 12 Euro for 4 people to enter. Not crowded at all and the extensive pamphlet and numerous sign boards inside the church provide loads of information - in English as well as Spanish.

“Simple yet spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Small basilica but very nice in its simplicity. Also attended a guitar performance in the side chapel that was amazing! Will try to rate the music seperately as I highly recommend it.

“Artists Corner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

We visited the Placa del Pi on one of the fortunate days when there is a Sunday market & the locals were really welcoming in getting us to try everything they were selling. We only saw the Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi from the outside of this square but it looked very impressive. The Placa del Pi seems to be the meeting place for all of the artistic locals and there is a great atmosphere among them.

“Small but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Very cool church. I saw Manuel Gonzalez's concert inside the basilica and it was memorable. It is small but definitely worth it if you visit Barcelona.
