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.

Most amazing piece of architecture that we have seen anywhere in the world. Can't wait to come back and see it when it's actually finished - hopefully in my lifetime. I had heard that this place and Gaudi architecture was incredible. That really hits you when you first get a glimpse of this basilica coming out of the train. Won't... More

We had an excellent apartment overlooking this magnificent building! Queues were long to get in, but it was worth it. Highly recommend.

I don't have the adjectives to describe just how wonderfully amazing the Basilica was....it was/is a marvel of craftsmanship, an extraordinary work of art, something that should not, ever, be missed if one is traveling to Barcelona! I spent several hours there, taking well over 300 pictures - and that was just of the outside! I (sadly) never made it... More

You must visit the Sagrada when you go to Barcelona. Walking inside for the first time is awe inspiring and an emotional experience. We booked tickets online which was very straight forward and easily the best thing to do. Getting in was then very quick and easy. In general the organisation is excellent and there are plenty of staff inside... More

I was absolutely blown away by the inside of the Basilica! One of my favourite tourist attractions in the world. Although it is not finished the exquisite colourful windows inside give it an eerie feel but it is just spectacular inside. - Booking ahead of time is an absolute MUST! - Get the audio guided tour if you want to...

Absolutely stunning. I won't pretend to knowing a lot about the Sagrada Familia before arriving in Barcelona but it is now one of the most moving memories of my trip. It's absolutely essential to go inside this incredible building. My only advice would be that the lines for the elevators up the towers are long - as are the lines... More

We booked tickets online and it was a place worth it. One should definitely view Gaudi's masterpiece. The concepts are bold and daring, stood in awe of the creation.

Definitely a must see in Barcelona, the interior is absolutely amazing! The exterior seems a contrast to the serenity you feel when inside. I highly recommend a tour so you can enjoy the full history of this amazing church.

This is a beautiful building that just takes your breath away on entry. It is worth noting that you really have to be organised about your visit. I wasn't and couldn't find synchronised tickets for the cathedral and one of the towers. I would suggest purchasing tickets online a couple of days in advance if you want to do both... More
