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

Plan your visit
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

Hi all, I was wondering whether the Gaudi bundle package for Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia is worth it? Does it really help to skip the line and enter directly in these monuments? Any personal experiences would be appreciated. If I do not opt for Gaudi Bundle and directly book online tickets from official website, then how much waiting time does it take to clear the queue?
I visited both La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell 2 weeks ago. We booked entry to La Sagrada via the official website and this gained us easy entry, as trying to buy tickets at the venue had a long line. We visited Park Guell as part of the hop on hop off bus itinerary and bought entry tickets at the venue with little wait. Note that Park Guell takes a lot of time as it has to be walked and there are many trails. In my view, it's not really worth it unless one has time to burn. Hope this helps.
are senior discounts available for non Spainish citizens? if you get the discount do you have to wait in line to prove your age? Cannot get the website to process my order??
I visited there before COVID19 and as far as I remember there was a discount but your documentation has to be written in english\spanish. Might be some changes since COVID19 because of the economic situation...
We’ve been trying to book tickets via the official website for the last few days but when we put in personal details we then get an error message and can’t get to the payment page. Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to book?
Hi, I recommend that first thing you do when you get to the hotel, ask for help to do all the bookings because they have telephone numbers easily to get to the places you want to visit and they also give you info about the time that it gets to get there and the visit in and around. I prepared a list, made my bookings with those who had a web and for those who didn't, I asked at the hotel reservation to do it for me and I succeeded..... Enjoy !
Debating self audioguide vs guided tour. Any thoughts/recommendations?
Only did the guided tour with Tour Guy, guide was awesome and was available to answer questions, something you don’t have with audio guide
Hello, my dad is an early pensioner, he has a document that proves his status, but he has 64 years now. Will the pensioner ticket be accepted for him at the entrance to the Sagrada Familia?
I am sorry, but I really do not know the answer to your question. Perhaps their website can provide more information to you.
Buongiorno, volevo sapere se è visitabile con una persona in sedia a rotelle, ovviamente non mi riferisco alla parte delle torri. Dal sito, a parte il costo del biglietto per disabili e relativo accompagnatore, non si capisce. Grazie
Si è tranquillamente visitabile anche con sedia a rotelle…
Hello, does anyone have information about taking small dogs that fit into a bag to the cathedral? I know that pets are generally not allowed, but I hope there might be an exception if they are in a container.
The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia rules and regulations say, No animals are allowed on the site except for guidedogs

Sí, es posible que se aplique a los jubilados de otros países, sólo debes elegir la opción a la hora de pagar. De todas formas puedes buscar en la web y contactar directamente con la Basílica para que estés más seguro.
