For nearly 30 years, I am visiting Barcelona in regular intervals. And every time, I try to jump in on a little tour inside the cathedrale - with the construction in progress. And every time I am surprised the new additions made inside and outside. I am feeling part of history, as I see a monument in the process of... More

yes, sagrada familia is a crazy, unbelievable cathedral...still under construction after hundreds of years. we got a laugh as we watched masons, working on the roof tiles, imagining what they say at the end of the day "another 25 tiles done, 76,987,766 more to go." We went in with a guide so bypassed the lines, but admission was $70 for... More

There is no elevator to... More

It left me overawed! Nothing like it in the world - a tribute to Gaudi! Work started in the 1880's and is still ongoing.

Having been here twice, it always amaze me how fascinating this place is. It's worth a trip just to see the size of it from the outside, even if you decide not to go inside. I recommend it. It's also a nice walk back to the centre where the zoo/park is.

A must see. And not just the outside. In fact, I found the outside a little too over-the-top but once I stepped inside I was overwhelmed not only by its magnificence but it's serenity. The nave has a wonderful meditative spirit about it and I found it very easy to slip into a prayerful state as we walked around the... More

You shouldn't miss Sagrada Familia when visiting Barcelona. The traditional long queues are really worth the time as you enter one of the most amazing churches I've ever seen.

i was totally blown away by the inside of this building. The colours and how they mum, purely by the sun shining through the stained glass was stunning. The high ceilings and the shapes of the alcoves all added to the effects. The floor looked very plain in comparison!!!

One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited! It's simply awesome! The attention to detail in every nook and cranny is awe-inspiring. To think this was the creation of one man with such planning and precision to create this amazing structure knowing the 200 year journey it would take to complete it. Expected to eventually be the Church of... More
