This Church is impressive in size and has loads of history on the inside. Highly recommend having a guide or reading about the church upon entering. Goya painted a couple of the interior domes, the locals try to guess what color of The Maddonas dress...More

The visit is free, and a definite must when in Zaragoza. The floors and columns are all marble, while the ceilings and the many domes are all decorated with frescoes. It was trully impressive, to a certain extent more so than St Paul's in London....More

This is the landmark for Zaragoza. If you come to the city you have to take time to experience the beauty and history of this basilica. It's free too, so that is a plus!

During my two and a half-day stay in Zaragoza I have explored the city exhaustively and without any doubt the Basilica stands out amongst all the sights that are worth visiting here.

We visited this with a US tour group. Lovely interior - slightly different than many others we saw in Spain. Free admission, so it's worth a stop! Take a few minutes to appreciate the architecture.

Impressive church, inside and out. The coloured tiles on the rooftop and the “temple inside a temple” for La Pilar make it special. Be aware: no picture taking allowed inside. There is also an elevator you can take for 3E up the tower on the...More

One night stopover and had time to visit. Huge Basilica on the banks of the river. Well worth a visit. Lovely promenade by the side of the river and plenty of bars & cafes around

You should visit if you are in Zaragoza. Free entry. All the little museums inside the basilica are very interesting.

Building and interior are amazing, would need to do guided tour to get the most out of the visit. Not suitable for kids inside, but lovely plaza outside.
