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.

If you use a walking stick (even occasionally) don't take it with you on your visit to the Sagrada Familia if you hope to go up the towers. They have a blanket policy of denying anyone with a stick access to the towers - regardless of your ability to walk, with or without the stick. We fell foul of this... More

Unfortunately we could not get inside the Sagrada Familia as the ticket office had sold out for the day; and we were told we should have booked beforehand. Unfortunately, we didn't know this was a requirement. However, we were able to walk all around the outside and enjoy the magnificent architecture. What imagination Gaudi had to design this magnificent building.... More

It was a lot of fun and it really showed me how beautiful Spain really is, while also increasing my awareness for maths in architecture.

The whole story about this Gaudí work of art-in-progress is interesting, and the work and detail is awesome. It was just crawling with people, which was kind of unpleasant (don't know if there are any days/times when it's not), and we were on high alert for pickpockets. Fortunately no incidents, and we got a bunch of keepsake pix.

an amazing structure well worth a visit. The trip to the towers is not really much to enjoy, except the view from above.

Its pretty spectacular from the outside, unfortunately didnt have time to go in. However we were advised by our tour guide that the inside is no where near finished and the outside is more spectacular. The cranes ruin the photo opportunities somewhat, but once finished Im sure this will be an extremely beautiful cathedral.

We have gone to the Sagrada Familia twice...a few years apart. Such a gorgeous church inside and out...the most beautiful stained glass we've ever seen anywhere! Just remember that it is in a state of constant construction, so some areas are blocked off at times. Be sure to get your tickets ahead online. You won't regret it!
