We did a tour with an English guide. You could not possibly understand all of the work in this amazing structure without one. To just go and walk through would be selling yourself short on this beautiful piece of work, especially if you are a Christian.

This was my first time to the Sagrada, definitely something I would see again. From the outside it is incredible, but when you walk inside your jaw will drop! It's absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Amazing achritecture, Gaudi's best creation. And yes it's still under construction...has been forever and probably will still be when you go. But regardless the cranes are an after-thought... More

We ordered our tickets online well in advance of our visit. The staff there are friendly and manage the timed entry in an efficient manner. Our entry was 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday. We were a little concerned that a Saturday visit would be a complete zoo, but due to the nature of the timed tickets and the overwhelming size... More

This is truly an amazing piece or architecture, that has to be seen in person to be believed. It looks big outside, but inside the natural light beaming into the huge open space is brilliant. As part of your ticket you can buy access to one of the towers, from where you have a great view over the site. Word... More

Well this is probably a place you want to see when you're planning to go to Barcelona. And you should. It is just as beautiful as you've imagined and the pictures you've seen. It'll be really interesting to see what it's like when (if) they finish. Still a long ways to go :)

and interesting, not the best of Gaudi's works. One of his other houses (the name is escaping me, starts with a B) is the most unbelievable and the park,

We had seen the outside, of this basilica a few years ago but were able, this time, to visit the inside using an audio guide in our language. This building, started years ago, will only be completed in 2015, the year of Gaudi's 100th anniversary of his death. The Basilica is an example of architectural genius. This is a must-see... More

This is where we ended our tour of Barcelona so we could spend as much time as we wanted here. This is truly amazing.

Get your tickets online ahead of time! The light in the church is beautiful because of all the colored glass windows. It will be amazing one finished.

We stood open mouthed at the enormity of the architecture / work in progress. Had a coffee at Starbucks opposite, then walked across the road and straight in avoiding the queues using the tickets we printed from our hotel. If the outside view doesn't inspire the inside will....... Outstanding! Surely no visit to Barcelona should miss this.
