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.

Amazing experience! A must do, go inside, walk through the museum. Get to know the amazing-ness. Order tickets online a couple of days before so you can go up the towers. We missed out and was pretty gutted.

A must see when visiting Barcelona! Antoni Gaudí began construction on the Sagrada Familia back in 1882. With construction still ongoing, one can only marvel at the design of this unique church. Construction is set for completion in 2026. Why wait?

I'm not one for cathedral's really but this is a must see and the views from the top of the towers are fantastic. The lake in front was not particularly attractive - looked like it was full of pea soup but with the cathedral towering over it - who cares! Booking essential if you want to avoid a long wait...

Simply awesome - majestic, spiritual, enlightening, inspirational unique, beautiful, definitely worth a visit. Best to book on line in advance to avoid the queues - 15 euros per person (without guided tour)

I am not a religious person and my second visit here in 3 years due to the atmosphere, architecture and uniqueness of the building. The lighting inside from the stained glass windows is stunning...... We booked on line this time, picked our time and no queues (unlike our first visit)

Fascinating architecture , a huge building with a great architecture details. Four tips - try t arrive early before the coach parties (about 9am). Book in advance on line, and take the audioguide, which is a big help or else try to book the ticket from internet , cause when we went there at 9 am, we booked the ticket... More

I loved it. Wife and kids sat there bored for an hour. Amazing place if you like this sort of thing, if not, save money and take selfies from outside with everyone else! Do book online in advance as turning up on the day means a long queue for tickets which will likely be for an entry time slot in... More

This is a must see if you are in Barcelona. It is extraordinary in its architecture and detail and enriching in its amazingly peaceful aura... and I am not religious . The genius of Gaudi ! We visited all of his 'masterpieces' in Barcelona and all are more than worthy of spending the time to visit. Of course La Sagrada... More

First of all pre-book your tickets online. So you aren't waiting for hours in line to get in. Once you are in The Sagrada Familia, take you time are explore this wonderful architecture and excellent attention to detail. What else can i say besides Antoni Gaudi...master.
