The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a monumental church devoted to the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Construction began in 1882, based on plans drawn up by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, and Antoni Gaudi was commissioned to continue the project in 1883.

The Temple has always been an expiatory church, built only from donations. As Gaudi said: "The Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people." In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the site as a minor basilica.

Amazing interior!!!

I've never seen a cathedral with this patterns, and I always visit them. Don't miss it! It is original and futuristic, Gaudi was a genius

It may be a bit pricey but it is totally worth it. Get the audio guide and you learn so much. The stained glass is phenomenal.

This is definitely a "must see" in Barcelona, the master piece of Gaudi where he spent his last years, but be aware of the long lines - so try to buy the ticket online and skip the line.

Tho its still building, the crains doesnt affect the outlook of this gorgeous giant! It is really interesting and colorful every part of the church, feel so inspiring after going under Gaudi's bldg. The souvenir shop is not bad as well ! :-)

I am not religious in the slightest and do not enjoy visiting churches so wasn't sure about paying the entrance fee. I'm extremely glad my husband persuaded me we should go in, based on reviews he'd read (and also because he thought it looked like it should be in Lord of the Rings), as this is one of the most...

Read about this building in a book and had to see it. It did not let me down. One of the most unique building I have ever seen anywhere in the world!

Always known about this place but purposely didn't research any further before coming in an attempt to just let it make its own impact. The outside is amazing and will only get better, but the inside leaves your jaw on the floor! Such beautiful architecture and truly one of the best places you can visit in the whole country let...

It has always been an ambition to visit this site, so was delighted when I finally made it. Dropped off by our tour bus at the rear for us to buy our ticket at E18 each. One of the supervisor notice I had a stick (due to a foot injury) and fast forwarded us through the queue, which was much... More

If you choose to visit Barcelona, instead of plenty of things you should see, Sagrada Familia is the first place I will recommend. This is special building with great historical story and legend. You just can not stay calm in front of this magical powerful building. Even though is still under construction you will be able to come in and... More
