Great architecture

The church has a great architecture. I didn't manage to see inside but the outer architecture is amazing.

Absolutely gorgeous, do go inside. It's one of the most spectacular churches I've ever seen. Unfortunately, they don't let you take pictures inside, but it's still very worth visiting.

I previously declared the cathedral in Salamanca to be the most beautiful in Europe. Today I visited the cathedral in Zaragoza and may have changed my mind. This is on spectacular cathedral, not to be missed if you have a chance to visit it.

Even if you are not a religious person, this cathedral is one-of-a-kind. The history behind and the art within (Goya e.g.) are simply breathtaking. This monument is regrettably underrated. It should be one of the "must-see" atractions not only in Spain but also in Europe.

This is THE place to visit...for its history and meaning. The roofs are seen from far and away and the tilework, characteristic and wonderful. Inside...it is huge...so there is no feeling of coziness but of grandieur. The main altar to Virgin of Pilar (or 'Pilarica') is THE best part. At the back of the altar there is a reclinatory bench...

This is a very nice baroque-style Basilica and well worth a visit. It's free to enter but in order to have a chance to walk around and see it all, you should plan your visit to avoid the mass times (which are quite frequent!). The hours are posted at the entrance. The interior has many lovely chapels and the exterior... More

It is one of the best known of the Spanish churches. A very large building. Nice interior and impressive silhouette. Try having a look at it from the oposite side of the Ebro river.
