This was the highlight of our Barcelona trip. The superlatives have all been said. Go on a sunny day, book online in advance, take the audio tour, spend a couple of hours looking, listening, learning - and prepare to be amazed. Ten out of ten. Incredible.

Absolutely stunning. Book your tickets online as you get straight in. You do have to line up for the headset but that moved quickly. The stained glass was absolutely spectacular. I saw this church 10years ago and can't wait to see it in another 10 years. It is remarkable that it has been under construction for so long.

We've seen a lot of churches, basilicas and temples in Europe and Asia and this is one of the most uniquely architectural basilicas we've ever seen. A feast for the eyes. However, do yourself a HUGE favor and buy your tickets online or you'll be standing in the line that wraps around the whole basilica and then be told you... More

Yes, they charge 14 Euros to get in, but it is well worth every cent. This is an amazing building and has to be the no 1 on the list of sights in Barcelona.

Everything that can be said about this building has already been said - don't miss it if you're in Barcelona. But do book in advance online if you possibly can - it will save you a lot of time. Be prepared for huge crowds.

I pre-booked my ticket and audio guide and avoided the long Que. ..a must. The feast for your eyes starts as you approach both facades off the church. Magnificent done work. I wept when I entered the church. The scope and vision of Gaudi's masterpiece overwhelmed me and I am a tough cookie that travels alone! Better than Notre Dame... More

The most awe-inspiring, unique church in all of Europe. Though technically not a cathedral, I thought it was more impressive than St. Peter's and Notre Dame combined.

I went there on March 2014 and it is amazing. Two reccomendations: Make reservations online at least one day before and since you have a time window, pick around 9am. It is less crowded and you will be in in about 15 minutes. The lines are very slow and even if you see it short it will take you about... More

I personnally never liked much SF from outside but once inside you right away see that it is a great piece of art. Get your ticket on the internet to avoid the waiting.

Definitely an interesting building to see. We went at 10 am, with tickets (prepaid) and had been told that buying the tickets ahead of time would allow us to "jump the queue" and get in right away. We waited in line for 15 to 20 minutes - not a big deal with the beautiful weather though.
