  • It doesn’t take long to see and is free to enter. The ceilings and main alter are magnificent. In a separate door, when services are taking place,d is the equally stunning chapel of Santa María...

  • Gorgeous structure with so much history. The area is surrounded by lovely shops and cafes, so you can sit and enjoy the beauty of the structure and surrounding buildings.

  • An amazing landmark basilica. This is the highlight of the tourist attractions in Sargossa. I would recommend arriving in the early morning as the doors open at 10 AM. The church is split up into two sections. The only way to reach both sections is by exiting the church and entering to the other section When inside the church you must be respectful in silent. No hats are allowed inside the church. No videos are allowed to be filmed inside the church. No pictures or photos are allowed to be taken inside the church.
  • Extremely photogenic cathedral in the heart of Zaragoza. It is, by far, the most famous attraction of the city. The whole city is built around it. If you're traveling from Madrid to Barcelona (or viceversa) I would suggest planning a stop here. It doesn't have to be much, stop for lunch, come visit this and then continue. Well worth it.
