Overview

One of the most emblematic buildings of the Catalan Gothic. An outstanding church built in the XIVth century with a purity and unity of style that is very unusual in large medieval buildings. You can visit the church during the worship time or enjoy its the beauty and its secrets along the cultural time, when you are almost alone with the building and discover its secrets.

A Catalan gothic Church from around the 13th-14th Century with all its splendor of vaunted ceilings, large columns and spaciousness.. A dream of architecture that should please the traveler.

The age of this building and its long build time are evident in the varied styles from bottom to top, Romanesque ,early gothic and high gothic. Significantly different from the cathedral nearby and completely subdued compared with the Gaudi basilica under construction . As always,...More

Really worth visiting. Paid to have a tour of the towers - we had an excellent and enthusiastic guide who was fantastic - I didn't even know there was a difference between northern and southern Gothic styles before this visit

Spent about an hour wandering round this beautiful Cathedral on a wet day. Very peaceful and quiet. No real wait to get in and a good place to see stained glass.

What a vision Gaudí had! A must see! Definitely book a tour to get the most out of this church. They do have an audio guide but it’s basic. Definitely pay extra for the towers.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

I went in July and there was no charge to go inside the church. It was €3 to go to the roof, but it was definitely worth it!

if you are having difficulty getting an answer from the church perhaps you could contact the diocese?
