Enjoy the exterior that is so unique and the interior that is happy and colorful. Save time for the excellent museum below ... You'll spend more ti there than in the cathedral ... Worth an additional 2-4 hours itself!

This was so very different from the other churches and basilicas in Europe. We did a live tour which was well worth the money. This site should not be missed. You'll never forget it!

The size of the church was amazing. A little different and more modern that all the other religious buildings we have seen in Europe.

Gaudi had a great vision when he designed this yet to be finished piece of work. One of the most incredible buildings I have ever seen. The detail is amazing. Don't miss it and take a couple of hours.

Such a unique structure - has to be seen to be believed! So much to learn about the famous Gaudi through visiting this monument which stands proudly in the city.

It is well worth paying to go inside the Sagrada, and get the audio guide for some interesting guidance around the building. One tip though, book online if you know when you want to visit to avoid very long queues!!

This is the best example of the architect Gaudi's works. It is Still a work in process according to the instructions he left After he passed. One of the most original and magnificent examples of beautiful, organic buildings in the world
