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.

This is such a beautiful basilica. Gaudí's Masterpiece. If you like his works this is a must see. Under construction since 1882 so there is still a lot of work being done. It was very busy, lots of visitors but a most see in Barcelona.

Gaudi's architectural masterpiece of a church is not easily described in words, nor even photographs. Design influences here are not only inspired from the past but the contemporary as well. The life of Christ as well as the natural world of organic designs blend here in a wild symphony of architectural order. Symbolism is everywhere you look! The site is... More

Do not miss this once in a lifetime experience of visiiting and experiencing the Sagrada Familia. Making a choice to visit a second time, I saw so much more of the detail, creativiity and devinely inspired work of Gaudi, and now others as they carry on his vision. Take your time, meditate and quietly open your heart to this amazing... More

Sagrada Familia is possibly one of the most amazing experiences you can have. While the line for tickets and entry can be lengthy during tourist seasons, as touristy things go in Barcelona, you MUST visit. It's still under construction, which some people think takes away from the Basilica, but I think that overall, because the inside is mostly finished (except... More

The one must see sight in Barcelona, Spain. My last visit was over 10 years ago, and the progress has been amazing. The main floor/chapel is now a dedicated church and a basilica. It is an incredible sight that you must see to believe! The art work and architecture is amazing. Well worth the 90 year wait. Any of the... More

It was a nice tour. I was expecting the inside of the church to have more design. It is more of a modern look. The artifacts was interesting to see. Utilizing the tour guide saved time waiting in line to get in.

Book in advance... Get your receptionist yo do it, otherwise you may have to queue only to find your ticket will only be for a couple of hours time. Do the whole experience, cathedral...museum and tower. Amazing

This is a review for the people that actually care: I can't encourage visiting the Basilica until the course of development is turned around. I've also written a complaint mail, here it is: "I'm writing this simply in the hope that I am among other concerned tourists that don't think the way the basilica is progressing is in any way...
