Admire 360-degree views of Zaragoza and the Ebro River from Torre Del Pilar. An elevator takes you to the base of the spire. Then you'll climb a short staircase to the top, where on a clear day, you can see all the way to the distant peaks of the Pyrenees. Look out over the bright green, yellow, and blue chevron tiles of the church roof and its many spires pointing towards the heavens. Below, watch the deep green Ebro flow past. Using our online itinerary creator, Zaragoza attractions like Torre Del Pilar can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Torre Del Pilar Reviews
You really get a lift when you visit the tower above the basilica. The entrance to the tower is hard to find but it’s inside the basilica through a back corner door. Not well marked. When you get to..... more »

Very nice views, except that the most interesting side of the balcony is not accessible
Great views of the city and worth the €3 you pay. I had a hard time finding it. The guy in the church that works the room with the relics you have to pay to see was not the most helpful. I was told on the right. Well first of all, the big wooden doors were closed, and when I tried to push open seemed locked. There’s just one sign and then nothing. So to help you out, even though photos are not allowed in the church, I took some of only the sign and door. Winds were 26 mph today so I was scared! I swear the tower was moving! But it was worth it. The guy that takes your money and works the elevator may be up and you just wait for him to come down, pay him, and he takes you up. Then you can climb the stairs the rest of the way for the tip top view :)
