Highlights

  • Classic example of Gothic architecture 
  • Seat of the archbishop of Barcelona 
  • Beautiful hidden rooftop
While it may not be Barcelona's most well-known cathedral (that honor goes to La Sagrada Familia), this Gothic masterpiece is still well worth a visit. While churches existed on these grounds hundreds of years prior, the construction of the cathedral as it currently stands took place between the 13th and 15th centuries, with the most recent renovation happening in 1913. 

Also worthwhile are the cloisters, which enclose the Well of the Geese, to the right of the nave. Entrance to the main areas and the cloister is free on weekdays between 8AM and 12:45PM and between 5:45PM-7:30PM. Otherwise, a donation of 7 Euro is suggested and provides access to the Cathedral floor and cloister, the roof, and choir.
