Very impressive and large cathedral in the heart of Barcelona. The geese were a lovely surprise to behold. For 3€ one can take the lift (no stairs) to the top and get a great view of the surrounding city.

It can get very busy and long queues to get in. (7 euros to enter, not including the tower). Lots to see and quiet interesting. I would recommend a visit.
