We of course wanted to see this church during our visit to Barcelona. It was worth the wait in line (about 30 minutes) to get tickets to get in about 1/2 hour later. All I can say is it was a very spiritual experience for me. An absolutely breath-taking church. The architecture was amazing, both the old areas and the... More

We visited a lot of churches and cathedrals on our trip to Spain, but Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is unique and magnificent. I had been told it was not worth the price of admission to go inside, but I totally disagree. It is breathtaking, and beyond the sanctuary itself, there is a museum that you can also visit. We visited... More

One of the best churches I've ever seen. Gaudi is a genius. If anyone can make you feel phisical presence of Good (although I'm atheist and not religious) it's Gaudi in Sagrada familia. I've lost almost 4 hours looking ana watching the whole church, detalis and admiring this masterpiece of art and it still wasn't enough for me. One of... More

Everything on the Gaudi tour booked thru our travel agent with Travel Bound. I would not use TB, as the tour was expensive. For the price, I did not expect a HUGE group.

Nice place to walk around. Book in advance, as we arrived as it opened and the people outside with no advance tickets had been there 1.5 hours queuing for tickets.

We chose to miss the line and do an organised tour. We booked through viator but the company was Julia Travel and you arrive at their office 10mins before the tour. The guide told us about the Sagrada Familia and what parts Gaudi made. You wear an audio tape and can hear the guide as she explained everything. It was... More

This is a must see part of any Barcelona trip. Easily accessible from the Metro. The astonishing architecture is inspiring. Each time you look up you see something different. An unforgettable memory.

Only went outside to wait in line with hundreds of others to get tickets when we realised we could get them online, booked through Viator.com, - USELESS! Got a reference number and it said we should wait for the e- tickets after confirming the time slot. Up until one hour before our booked slot we still had no confirmation and... More

I think the title of my review is a good summary. We loved the Sagrada Familia, it has to be one of the top things to see when visiting this beautiful city. We took some amazing pictures but it is one of those landmarks that you have to see for yourself, no photos do it true justice. However the lines... More
