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 place is monumental, I'll give it that, but also a money grab. That's all I got to say about that...

We made the trek at night on our anniversary after dinner & flamenco. It was a 40 minute walk, and it was worth every effort. It's well lit at night, there are fewer people and it was amazing. We were told the day before we arrived that you must purchase tour tickets at least a week in advance, so if... More

We booked our tickets in advance which saved us a lot of time. This is one of the most interesting, intriguing and beautiful buildings I've ever toured. The way Gaudi used natural light inside the Basilica was truly spectacular. This is a must see in Barcelona.

I didn't love the Viator guide who rushed through several languages and divided the group and then never reconnected. But the Sagrada Familia was incredible with nature-inspired stained glass and tree-like fluted supports, and definitely don't miss the Gaudi museum tucked off to the side near the gift shop for lots of information that I wished I had heard from...

This is a must see if you are in Barcelona. Words can not describe how magnificent this Cathedral is. As everyone else recommends, get your tickets in advance.

If you want to be blown away by beauty, a visit to the Sagrada Família is a must. Goose bumps granted regardless of your religious beliefs. Better to buy tickets online to avoid line-up. Visit around 6 pm and you will see the sunlight through the mosaics. Gaudi's masterpiece is a work in progress and should be completed in 2026.... More

Loved this tour- Such an incredible place- We learned so much about Gaudi and all of the work that went into building the cathedral. So much interesting information about the 4 sides of the building and what they stand for- I highly recommend taking a tour to understand all of the different styles of architecture and why.
