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.

The entrance for the pre-booked tours is on the side where there is a little park with a pond across the street. If you have booked an audio tour, turn to the right after... More

I've never found this marvel to be particularly attractive, but the use of light when you go in is mind blowing and certainly worth seeing. The history of the place is also very fascinating. Be aware, that when you buy tickets, you are purchasing for a specific time slot, so buy online and don't wait until last minute.

There's not much to be said here. There's nothing that looks like this in the world. It's amazing. Be prepared though, it is loud. The construction noise is deafening. Traveling with a 6 month old made this more apparent than it probably would have been otherwise. Looking forward to returning in 2026 and viewing in the quiet!

Great place to visit but go early morning as it gets very busy. Also go in from the rear entrance, less busy

A fitting resting place for Gaudi. The most amazing cathedral I've ever seen. The outside was astounding, but I'm so glad we came back to get to tour the inside. Well worth the small admission price.

Visiting Sagrada Familia I first thought that Gaudi must have been a crazy guy. But then I realized he must have been a genious. Cathedral is magnificent by itself, but also offers an exhibition about Gaudis thoughts around the construction (mainly inspired by nature) and a museum about the construction work. Inspiring.

We reserved our tickets online which allowed us to quickly go inside at a specific time. Be sure to walk below and visit the museum. We almost missed it.

Breathtaking. Audio tour is a must. Recommend going up in the towers, but would probably do the nativity next time, even though you must go down the stairs, as the passion offered little opportunity for photos. Would not recommend the towers if you are claustrophobic. Order tickets online to avoid waiting in line.

Had a fabulous tour of the Basilica. Was there in 1992, and it was barely an outdoor pavilion. Every week need items are installed, the week before we arrived new doors were installed. The stain glass is amazing! Cannot be missed, having a tour is very helpful.
