What people say

"Located in the picturesque square of Placa del Pi, the basilica of Santa Maria del Pi was built between 1319 and 1391 in the Catalan Gothic style. It hosts the largest rose window in Catalonia and many other original stained-glass windows by Josep Ravella. If you visit in the late afternoon, you will be able to see the beautiful purple hued reflections from the stained-glass windows filling the interiors of the church, making the atmosphere even more mystical! Whilst admiring the gothic architecture turn your focus to the floor where you will be able to find a number of skull and crossbones carved into the slabs (just like in Santa Maria del Mar). During set times you can take a tour up to the rooftop where you will gain sweeping 360 views across Barcelona and see a wonderfully different perspective of the Cathedral of Barcelona. To access the roof-top you will need to climb up the 265 steps that make up a very small spiral staircase, but you do get to have a well-deserved ‘pitstop’ in the 54-metre-high octagonal bell tower, which is also particularly impressive! "
"The basilica is dedicated to the Virgin of the Pine Tree and dates back to the 14th century. Visitors can explore its beautiful interior, which is adorned with impressive columns and religious artwork. One of the highlights is the ascent to the basilica's rooftop, which offers panoramic views of Barcelona's historic district and the city beyond."
"10€ Entrance with a climb to the tower with a guided tour. A non-guided visit of the church is 5€. "
