One of the highlights of my trip to Barcelona. Plan to spend 2-3 hours here, get access to the towers, and get the audio guide! There is so much behind all of the art and architecture that you will never know without a guide, and the audio guide allowed us to move at our own pace, etc. The other Gaudi... More

This is a very beautiful place. There will be renovations going on with cranes for the next several years. The inside is beautiful. Be prepared to wait in a long line.

Brilliant. Exciting. wonderful attention to detail. Absolutely world class. Book on line to avoid delays and queues. Take the lift up the tower. Spend plenty of time looking at the detail. Truly awesome. Audio guide is useful. Get there as early as possible because it gets busy!

I had heard so much about the Sagrada Familia that I thought I might find it overrated - not a chance. While you may have some familiarity with the outside, the detail of design and story are simply spectacular and a bit overwhelming. And as much as you recognize the outside, the inside is a truly inspired masterpiece. Pay the... More

We took the Barcelona hop on hop Off bus and took a very quick tour around the sagrada. You really need more time to properly see it but it makes a big impact from the outside.

Sagrada Familia is truly one of the most amazing places on earth. Not like any other cathedral in the world. The design, light, stained glass anre all amazing. Will worth a visit, but get your tickets online beforehand as it saves the very long queues.

I've been there with my 5 years old girl and we spent 3 hrs inside. The audioguide for children is very well done and I highly recommend to buy it. Inside you won't find any bar or restaurant, but beverage vending machines are available. Skip the queue buying the tickets online.

Is indeed one of the most impressive cathedrals looking at it from the outside. It is also intresting looking at it from the inside, if it wasn't for the high ticket price! It gets even higher if you want to go up one of the towers! So from outside is by far better than the inside! And cheaper! I went... More

Words cannot express the beauty and awe of the Basilica. All I can say to you, it is a must see if you're in Barcelona. You won't be disappointed. I didn't go inside as the line to so long, I didn't know about purchasing tickets in advance so if you can I advise it. And if you can take the... More
