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.

the most beautiful church ever! It's a ongoing work building, but it doesn't have a negative impact in the visit, right the opposite, makes it more interesting!

One cannot be in Barcelona and not go to see the Segrada Familia. The only really annoying thing is that it is always under renovation (it is still being repaired and built) and it will continue to be for at least another 10 years. If you can wait until 2028, I am sure it will be worth it :-)

We spent half a day walking to and around this amazing cathedral. Outside very crowded, couldn't really face queuing for a timed ticket. Booked on line - the best move - thank goodness we did. Once inside the crowds seem to melt away. Nothing had prepared us for what we were to see. The size, shapes and colours are extra... More

Gaudi 's use of light alone makes this unforgettable. Every detail of the architecture is thought out. We took the elevator to the top. They don't tell you that the only option is to walk all the way down. Guys, it's a long way to the floor.

I have seen hundreds of churches around the world- There is simply NOTHING like this. Amazing. Book a reservation/ticket time ahead of time. Takes about two hours with the walking audio tour.

I do not regularly visit cultural places but I think that Sagrada Familia is a MUST visit in Barcelona. I was amazed by the original arquitecture that I have never seen before.

There is simply no other cathedral like it. It is straight out off a Dr. Seuss illustration; should he have written about cathedrals. The exterior invites a long studied look as there is so much detail to see. The inside is a light show on a sunshine day. Christ hangs on a cross in what seems to be mid air... More

Gaudi died before he completed the church design and construction. It is in the process of being completed based on interpretations from modern artists and architects, following a very sophisticated and interesting approach and process. I personally don't like the look of this architecture, but I am impressed by the signification desired by Gaudi and by the sheer size of... More
