We did the tower tour which allows you time to look around the church and then takes you to the top of one of the tours. Very informative and provides great views of the city!

Given the history what an amazing church. In the heart of the old town worth a visit just to marvel at the height of the column and arches. A tranquil spot in the tourist hub bub

I'm currently reading Idelfonso Falcones's Cathedral of the Sea--a historical novel about how this church was built and it's a wonderful way to get some more in-depth knowledge about the...More

100% worth a visit. It is absolutely stunning. Must book online before hand. The audio tour is worth listening too. We did the "passion" tower - which I wouldn't recommend. Just a view and a lot of steps down with no-where to stop.

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

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

Sorry I meant to add that we went just after lunch. I would check the church website for times of services as clearly viewing will be restricted during these.
