Concierge.com's insider take:
This handsome cathedral represents one of the finest Gothic structures in Europe. An imposing sight seen from the outside, with its distinctive flying buttresses and ornate rose windows, it is at its most impressive from within, where the nave soars 44 meters in the air in what seems an impossible feat of engineering. Built to replace the great mosque that stood here prior to the 13th century, the cathedral now encompasses a variety of styles that represent the fashions of each century. Its most prolific architect and designer, however, was undoubtedly Antoni Gaudí, and his hand is evident in the creation of an unusually light-filled space.
