In Magento 2, the price is placed on the product view page via a XML file named catalog_product_view.xml

You can view it in the catalog module's layout folder:


Or if you installed Magento 2 with Composer:


A container named product.info.price is created on the product view page. In the container, a block named product.price.final is created.

You can move the block with the <move> method in XML (Move Instructions):

<move element="product.price.final" destination="content" before="-" />

You can also create another block that uses the same class & arguments:

<block class="Magento\Catalog\Pricing\Render" name="product.price.final.copy" after="product.info.sku">
        <argument name="price_render" xsi:type="string">product.price.render.default</argument>
        <argument name="price_type_code" xsi:type="string">final_price</argument>
        <argument name="zone" xsi:type="string">item_view</argument>

*The above snippet is derived from what is in the catalog_product_view.xml file.

I hope this points you in the right direction!


I have similar requirement to show some text attribute values on frontend on product view page after the short description.
I have modified catalog_product_view.xml and added my own template file in my custom theme.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page layout="1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <container name="product.info.main" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="product-info-main product-shop col-md-7 col-sm-7 col-xs-12" after="product.info.media">
                <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Description" name="product.info.measurements" template="product/view/customattribute.phtml" after="product.info.overview">
                        <argument name="at_call" xsi:type="string">getMeasurements</argument>
                        <argument name="at_code" xsi:type="string">measurements</argument>
                        <argument name="css_class" xsi:type="string">measurements</argument>
                        <argument name="at_label" xsi:type="string">measurements</argument>
                        <argument name="add_attribute" xsi:type="string">itemprop="measurements"</argument>


$_helper = $this->helper('Magento\Catalog\Helper\Output');
$_product = $block->getProduct();
$_code = $block->getAtCode();
$_className = $block->getCssClass();
$_attributeLabel = $block->getAtLabel();
$_attributeType = $block->getAtType();
$_attributeAddAttribute = $block->getAddAttribute();

if ($_attributeLabel && $_attributeLabel == 'default') {
    $_attributeLabel = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute($_code)->getFrontendLabel();
$_attributeValue =$_product->getResource()->getAttribute($_code)->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);
<?php if ($_attributeValue) { ?>
    <div class="product attibute <?php echo $_className?>">
    <div class="value" <?php echo $_attributeAddAttribute;?>><?php echo $_attributeValue; ?></div>
<?php } ?>

I have taken reference from http://www.mohannatarajan.com/magento/magento2-get-product-attribute-value


In addition to @anshu-mishra, and only using XML (no custom template),

If your attribute is output is a number, just add the argument "at_type" with value "text".

<argument name="at_type" xsi:type="string">text</argument>
