As you can imagine, it is a very popular place and like in any popular place, you should expect lines and queues, especially from middle June to end of August. I've visited Sagrada Fam several times and now, the latest, in July resulted in 1h waiting time until we could get in. It is very unusual built, nothing you've seen... More

Barcelona's city marketing did obviously a good job - in the logic of city-arketing. And there is really one of the most beautiful and interesting cities of the world to present: for people who love european history, art and architecture as well as for "archaeologists of modernity". You can study and feel the rise and fall of industrialization and the... More

This is not just one more cathedral to visit - this is THE CATHEDRAL to explore in Spain. There is no other church, cathedral, or temple in the world that matches the architecture of Sagrada Familia. Words and pictures can't describe, you have to see it for yourself.

Huge lines everyday (we lived nearby) did not make us want to enter inside, and according to photos - not a huge loss of ours, Sagrada Familia is beautiful from outside, so waiting all the long hours (even with the e-ticket) to get in might not be the best option. A must see attraction, but don't bother to get inside.

Still an evolving masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia is simply stunning on the outside and within. Even if you're on a budget, this simply cannot be missed. Book your ticket in advance online.

A majestic and magnificent cathedral designed and partially constructed by the famous Spanish architect, Antonio Gaudi. The construction of the cathedral started in 1905 and still continues today. Tips: book your tickets online to save time from waiting in the queue. Visit the museum first before entering the cathedral. The museum provides a much more detailed background information on Gaudi's... More

There really aren't enough superlatives to describe this building. Amazing, spectacular, unique, stunning, beautiful, special. The amazing creativity of Gaudi is difficult to comprehend. I am not a religious person but can feel spiritual in some churches. I thought that with the hoards of tourists it would not feel like a place where you could sit quietly and reflect on... More

We have never seen anything as magnificent as this place. It is massive and work is still happening. You can't imagine someone creating this structure so long ago. It is so high it can be seen from everywhere.

Very impressive, definitive must see while in Barcelona. The place is way overcrowded so if you want to go in, just buy tickets online in advance as lines for tickets on site are hours long.
