My impressions before visiting Barcelona was that the adjective gaudy described it's Spanish namesake. Yes things are elaborate but they are also very true to beauty as it exists in nature. Through a profound understanding of natural shapes, Gaudi was able to mimic the random curves of natural settings in his architecture. You can judge the exteriors by the countless... More

In 1882, the original Sagrada Família Gothic church project, designed by Francesc de Paula Villar, was taken over by the young Antoni Gaudí, who transformed it into the most fascinating church of all time. An architectural bible called the Sagrada Família which has become a Barcelona icon. The building, which is still under construction, has lent its name to the... More

We spent 3 hours inside the Basilica and were impressed with the nature concepts of the building. As the sun travelled west, the light in the basilica constantly altered as the different stain glass windows were set alight - this was delightful.

Amazing architecture and the view over the city from the tower is nothing but amazing. Sagrada familia sammen med Parc Guell og casa Mila kan varmt anbefales

You need to go there, even if you are just passing by from the outside! It is impressive how this piece of art has been created and even after all these years it is still not done. Go there and you will not be disappointed!

One of the most original - if not the most original and unique - church I've ever been to. The stained glass and sculptures are absolutely breathtaking!

Follow the advice on this page and book your ticket in advance. We came during the low season (November) and there was still a long line. Don't be cheap, spend the money to go inside. This church unlike any I've ever seen. It's magical and mystical and you can truly feel the glory and wonder of God and the dreamlike... More

The artists and architects in my family were in awe. I personally didn't get the same spiritual feeling that I got from, say, the Notre Dame in Paris, for example. However, here, the way the beauty of nature was brought into stone was exquisite. It was beautiful. Don't forget to spend time in the museum under the church. Learning about... More
