I have been looking at my photo collection recently and I found an enormous amount of photo I personally took while visiting the historic Cathedral of Barcelona. I like visiting European churches because they are the very building that survived for centuries that still stands today thanks to the strong faith of its parishioners. These buildings took decades if not centuries to build and thankfully they still stand today. Made of stone and incredible craftsmanship some of them are quite famous which later became the most visited churches in various parts of Europe.
Some of these churches and cathedrals including the Cathedral of Barcelona requires an admission fee which actually help the maintenance and restoration costs of this houses of worship. They are open to the public for viewing all week except on Sundays when church services are being performed. I strongly advised not to disrupt Sunday services when visiting these churches.
During my trip to Barcelona in January 2017, I amassed a good amount of photos both inside, outside and from the rooftop of the cathedral giving one various perspectives of this centuries old church. Despite the fame and notoriety of the Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral of Barcelona is still visited by hundreds if not thousands of people today.
