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.

Wow, something for everyone! There are 3 very distinctive sides, 1 still to be done, from modern to gothic. Stunning! Didn't go inside as it was quite expensive and lots to see outside. Fantastic coffee shop near by selling coffee and croissant for 1.5euro where you can sit an admire the view out of the throng of people. If you... More

Visiting this location was truly amazing. It took some wandering about Barcelona, but discovering this location was inspiring. Make sure you get tickets to explore the Sagrada Familia because it's truly an inspiring building.

Definitely the first attraction of the Barcelona which is "must see". Try to book the ticket in advance if you are not interested in standing in long long queue.

This is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Just when you think you have viewed the sculpting, you see something else you didn't notice the first time, the same applied to the beautiful stained glass windows.. We went up the nativity tower which was beautiful and gave amazing views of Barcelona. You could see staff working... More

Bearing in mind that the Basilica will be finished in a few years to come, it is definitely worth a visit. I found it too daunting for me unlike the other buildings/houses also designed by Antoni Gaudi' as there are so many details to take in. The colourful windows were stunning on a very sunny day and the atmosphere inside... More

The outside was amazing but WOW, wait till you get inside! I was just in awe, I can't wait to go back when it's finished. It really is beautiful. We took the audio tour, so we could go round at our own pace, and also visited the tower on the passion facade. It may not be everyone's cup of tea... More

This is a must , Gaudi's amazing church, what an amazing building, this is the must visit, get your tickets before hand, but once inside you not feel overwhelmed with crowds.

You have to buy tickets from internet or you have to...wait at least 30 minutes. Do not buy the extra ticket to go up with elevator. Not worth it. The entrance is Gaudi but all the rest is not. You can see the difference....
