  • Nice place to visit a pray. Centrally located with an easy underground parking within 3min walk. On Sundays at 11am they have a Catalan religious music outside with people dancing a traditional Catalan dance. Be aware that the church is closed during mass on Saturdays and Sundays. Also they have a dress code to have clothes to the knees and covered shoulders. The nice part is they provide scarfs for free (to return ;) ) The surrounding neighborhood is very pleasant with a number of great shops and restaurants. Like most places in Europe, most shops are closed Sundays.
  • A magnificent cathedral I would recommend everyone to pay their visit. The cathedral is closed to the tourists during mass hours on Sundays. Entry fee is €7 per person. Simple security check prior ticket office. Only thing I appreciate is that if you could please turn your phone on silence while taking photos. Thank you.
