  • The cathedral is charming and inspiring. Built in the Gothic style with a monastery. Inside of cathedral you can see fountain and pond, where lives 13 gooses. Inside you can admire the organ and the whole Gothic style. The cathedral is beautiful from the inside and from outside. I recommend to visit, when you are in Barcelona.
  • On the day that I visited the Cathedral after looking around outside as well as the inside of it, I really like the Gothic Construction and it is well kept. It is quiet and peaceful so you can enjoy it for as long as you want. Right outside the Cathedral there is a small plaza and there are events that happen. This time there was a live band playing and plenty of people joined to dance while listening to the band. It was a lot of fun, and the church was gathering funds for a cause. It was worth stopping by and much more because of the music and fun. Stop by if you are near by you will not be disappointed.
