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.

Will they finish it in 20 years? It seems like an ongoing project and will remain so for many years. That does not seem to stop the hordes of people that happily visit. Lots of construction of course all around it so very noisy if you are looking for a place of contemplation and peace. Take lots of time to... More

This is probably the most visited attraction in Barcelona, so there is always a lot of people. Nevertheless is worthy to see up close this amazing church set up to be completed in 2026.

We visited this amazing site earlier with a Runner Bean walking tour. We decided to revisit for an inside look. Book tickets online to avoid the up to two hour wait. It is better if you have the flexibility to come on a Tuesday as it is less crowded. When you book online, it will ask you to choose a... More

So it was top of the list of things to do (aside from the Barca football of course) and met and exceeded all expectation - it is breathtaking!!! The detail, the aura the magnificence is just out of this world - a must see. PS - get some ham and cheese and fresh bread at the market and take it... More

Although still some years from bridge completed, much is there, and it's been officially consecrated. Yes, it has those .marvelous unbecoming as one sees in gothic cathedrals, but these lines are cleaner (in all ways) and topped by icons of saints. The stained glass windows in striking greens and reds are marvelous, sending.g beautiful light into the spaces. So much... More

Anyone who tells you it's enough to see the Sagrada from the exterior alone misses the point completely. It is simply stunning inside. Gaudi's style of mirroring nature in his architecture can only be completely appreciated by viewing the structures close up (e.g. catenary arches, paraboloid pillars, honeycomb windows, stained glass). His observation of mathematics in nature & his translation... More

This is, as most people know, a unique experience. The scale of this church is awesome and the organization is superb. There were lots of people to ask directions, we showed our tickets (bought on line) and were directed to the correct line. We waited a few minutes and were then allowed on to collect our headsets. All so organized!!... More

This is a must see in Bacelone. Pre-book online to avoid queu... It is the same price anyways (15 euros). Make sure you visit the museum downstairs and the other section that talks about the influence of nature on Gaudi's work. Plan at least 1,5 hours.

Don't miss going into the Cathedral and make sure that it is a sunny day as the light coming in through the stained glass windows is amazing, if you want to miss the cue take a guided tour.
