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.

The architect behind this place is fascinating, and I urge anyone who comes here to read up about him and visit his other sites: Park Guell and Casa Batllo. The Sagrada is still incomplete after 100+ years so there's a lot of history behind its build as well as its design. Gaudi was also most famous for his love for... More

We visited a couple of weeks ago on a sunday and called ahead to our hotel to ask them to book us tickets. We didn't ask them to include the audio-guide which is supposed to be very good. The problem is that if you don't order the audio-guide when you order your tickets, you can't buy it separately when you... More

Would thoroughly recommend a visit here on a visit to Barcelona, heard it was best to prebook tickets which we printed off. The scale and grandeur of this building was simply stunning, so much to see with the most amazing stained glass windows.

There are not enough words to express your feelings looking this amazing monument touching the sky! We went 2 times in the same trip. One in the morning and one at the evening. In our second tour we were lucky lucky enough to get into the church. There was a ceremony and the entrance was free. You felt an awe.

Probably the most famous attraction of Barcelona, and it gets very busy. We were in Barcelona last week and before going I took the advice and pre-booked our tickets for the morning (at 9:30) and was so glad we did as it meant that once our time rolled round we got in a short line and was straight in -...

Amazing architecture and definitely worth a visit just for the size and design of the cathedral. We also went up the towers which was pretty good, but it is about 400 steps on the way back down!

This is the most stunning architecture I have ever seen in my life. You don't have to be religious to appreciate this beautiful chapel. Every detail has a story...

What an amazing experience. Gaudi was certainly a man of exquisite vision. Would recommend this as a must see in Barcelona.
