The security / bouncers(??) would not allow us in on a Sunday as we were not Spanish - Spanish tourists were waved through no problem. It seems the 'house of god' is definitely not open to all.

The plaza in front of the Cathedral is always do full of life! When in Barcelona this is my 'spiritual home' regularly attending Mass (in Spanish and Catalan) in the beautiful chapel just to the left of the main entrance. The Cloisters are beautiful too.

Wonderful cathedral. Best to go early in the morning when it is free and less crowded. The cloisters are unique with the 13 geese (although I only counted 11 when i visited the cathedral) reflecting the age of the young martyr whose remains lay beneath...More

We did not enter the cathedral, but we went to the square in front of it several times. It was really lively with market stalls and street artists - the musicians are amazing, they are of a really high calibre! We really liked walking around...More

Of course, nothing is going to compare to the Sagrada Familia but this is a beautiful cathedral. You don't need much time here, maybe half hour (or less), but it is worth going through.

This is a beautiful cathedral located in the Gothic Quarter. Entry is free, although only open to the public at certain times of day. The hidden gem in the cathedral is that for 3 Euros, you can take an elevator to the roof. Few people...More

Located in the Gothic quarter this cathedral is guaranteed to amaze. Go in the morning to avoid the crowds and free entry. Buy a candle from the small shop at the entrance. Walk cross the courtyard and see the 13 geese. Inside, admire the Gothic...More

No one should visit Barcelona without seeing Barcelona Cathedral from inside and outside. Across the church is a placa ( open space) with some benches and even to sit there and people wath or rest your feet for a little while do not miss.

We missed the free entrance and was happy to pay as the cathedral was beautiful to see inside. Was good that you had to be quiet inside as that meant that the environment was very peaceful.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

As far as I remember you paid into the Cahederal and this included the rooftop if you wanted to go up. We didn’t book in advance nor take a tour although I do remember an audio tour on offer. We went in the October, so not... More

Roof top access is part of entry to the Cathedral via an internal elevator. There is no supervision up there, your certainly not near the edge of the roof but scaffolding walkways are narrow at some parts. It is worth a... More

Definitely the roof... got amazing panoramic views. Not too expensive and certainly a cheaper option than the cable cars you can take over the city.
