While the basilica attracts tourists (and of course worshippers) from the world over for its size and uniquely impressive structure, the best part for me was when I went inside the basilica. The experience that the architect Antoni Gaudi wanted to create inside the place of worship is turning out exactly that! For me, the play of light thru the... More

Totally worth the rather steep entrance fee and the queuing. So eye-poppingly unique, that even my 8-year old was amazed.

What a magnificent building. Truly amazing piece of architecture. However, the continuous building work has covered parts of the building, never the less, it still given the WOW factor when we stepped out of the Metro. Well worth visiting. Enjoy.

My daughter and I visited this basilica when we went to Barcelona in March of 2013. I highly recommend going on line and getting your ticket/reservation in advance. It will allow you to skip the long long line that forms, which will save you quite a bit of wait time. I think if I remember correctly, its a little bit... More

No discussion about it, the building itself is impressive an beautiful. But the way Gaudi's heritage is treated nowadays is to sad for words. Cleaning up the building, for many, many years is by itself ok, but the new constructions in front lack any fel of integration what so ever. The enormous queue to get a ticketed entree made us...

Although its incomplete and still under construction, the design both inside and outside is amazing. The church does attract huge amounts of tourists on a daily basis, so I would definitely take time to fully experience this site and of course get all the necessary photos of this architecturally sound church. There is a charge of about 24 euros for... More

This building an architecture marvel, you must allow plenty of time to be able to "take it all in" it is hard to describe in words the beauty and majesty of this place. We did not really care for the inside, we could best use our money for other sites and attractions.

There is always a queue here but it is handled very efficiently and you will not take more than 20 mins or so. Note that the entrance is right round the other side of the basilica from the ticket booths. We liked the lovely main doors with all the bugs in the carving. Turn round when you get inside to...

Sagrada Familia Basicila should be one of the top 10 places to go while you are in Barcelona simply because of Antonio Gaudi's brilliance in craftsmanship. Buy tickets online to avoid wasting time while waiting in long queues. It's a splendid, spectacular basilica inside and out & do but separate tickets for one of those towers to have the view...

Make sure you pay the extra to go up the tower. Amazing views of the city. The interior and exterior of sagrida familia are amazing - not to be missed.
