“Absolutely beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This place was so extraordinary and beautiful. It is worth getting the tickets online though if you don't want to wait in the crazy line! Also, get the audio guide tour, it was worth the money! If you go to Barcelona you HAVE to go here and see this amazing work of art and architecture!! It took us about two hours to go through, but honestly I could have stayed there much longer just gazing at the beauty and light that is created inside!

“Should be a priority if in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Too much to see in one day. The sculpture is complex with lots of white doves, intricately carved portrait of the sacred family. Next to a park.

“breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Im not normally into walking around churches but i was completely converted after walking around this one. I was in awe of the buliding itself and the detail and sheer size of everything. The stained glass windows were wonderful and i found myself really exploring every nook and cranny, well worth a visit!

“MUST SEE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Incredible structure that must be seen. However, it was very, very busy and hot in august, perhaps it would be more pleasurable in the spring or fall

“Great attraction during your stay in Barcelona!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Beautiful surroundings and fantastic architecture. We visited around the Sagrada Familia as the queue was too long by the time we arrived. You`re recommended to arrive before 9am if you want to visit inside the building.
Simply stunning from outside(and bet even better from inside).
Definitely worth a visit if you`re visiting Barcelona.
