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.

A major must see sight in Barcelona. Amazing from the outside, even better on the inside. A truly historic sight to see. The light shining through the windows inside gives a fantastic light show. The fact it is still being worked on added to the wonder of it all. Book on line in advance to avoid the long wait to... More

Firstly, make sure you book your tickets in advance to avoid the long queues. We booked for 10am and got in very easily. As most of the other reviews state, the exterior of the Sagrada Familia, despite not being finished yet (due for completion in 2026) is so intricate and everywhere you look there is something else amazing to see....

Fantastic, a must visit. Do book online in advance to ensure you get tickets for the date you want . This will also help you make the most of your visit giving you the best chance of booking additional tickets to visit the towers and the crypt.

Make sure you get tickets in advance as the queues might be huge! Defiantly recommend going up one of the towers as the view is awesome and the way down the spiral staircases is an experience. Can be quite tiring tho :)

If you visit Barcelona, you HAVE TO see the Sagrada Familia. Still to be completed, it is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever laid eyes on - and I ever entered. Beautiful from the outside, breathtaking from the inside with its amazingly constructions and colorful windows. Go see yourself if you can!

amazing - not to be missed. Gaudi spent years on this and after his death it took nearly 80 years of development in computer aided design before an architectural practice to complete his complex geometric designs and deliver plans that contractors could use. a must see

Love the structure of the church and the detailed explanation of Gaudi's work. You will feel the serenity once you entered the church. Its wiser to book the tickets online to avoid queue and wait which can last 2-3hrs.
