I would highly recommend pre-purchasing skip the line tickets, as the queues are incredibly long. Once inside, marvel at the sheer beauty of Gaudi's yet to be completed masterpiece. The stunning stain glass windows are a sight to behold. Don't be put off by the ongoing construction - I think this only adds to the Spanish charm. You will be... More

I am not the tourist type but this was a brillant experience that I highly recommend!! It is more architecture than religion. Truly a Gaudi tribute.

Simply spectacular , and you HAVE to go but do what i did ; get the pass online ahead of time and skip the LONG lines! You have to go around to back side of Cathedral to get in but no worries you get to avoid waiting.....No way to describe this place but it is incredible being inside!!!!

Never judge anything from the outside-and that totally guilts for this amazing piece of art. Sagrada Familia gives you the feeling of glory and majesty from all aspects: the impressive outside front part which,as the oldest one, is a bit darker than the rest,giving to the church a stronger "goth" look, the newly built back outside part,where the techiques of...

Excellent must see. Be prepared to queue. We queued for an hour or so for a timed ticket one hour later so went for something to eat close by

the best is what u see from outside.As they are rebuilding it, you enetr ,go to the towers and see the machines instead of city view! I think its not worth it entering before construction is over.If you go, issue tickets from the internet or you will have to wait for hours!

This is a special place. Clearly focused on the tourist but very well presented. Quite stunning. This is one of the iconic sites in Barcelona and well worth the visit.

We bought the tickets online and went the following day (book early or there wont be many time slots for the next day). It is worth booking online to prevent the cues, but don't miss visiting the inside. It is marvellous!! Besides, you can also look at the carvings from closer. With the tickets, note that the one with Park... More

The Sagrada Familia is a must see in Barcelona. Not only is this a very spiritual place with tremendous energy but it is also one of the worlds most amazing works of architecture. On a trip through Italy, Spain and France my wife and I consider this to have been the highlight of our two week excursion.

Our English speaking guide had a passion for the city, the basilica, the architecture, the history. A truly unique visit unlike anything else I've experienced. The beauty, the workmanship, the joy expressed - and the magnitude of the thought and creation that expresses it - astounded me for over two hours.
