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 Sagrada Familia is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen !! I would recommend getting online tickets with an audio guided tour.. the only thing that bummed me out was that it was and still will be under construction for a long time .

Book online for tickets. Do not be late (you have 15 minutes), otherwise, you miss your slot. I enjoyed going up the Towers. I went to the Passions Tower. It is a little taller. Both towers use an elevator to go up. Both require walking down the steps (Nativity tower - 300 steps, Passion Tower - 400 steps). Some of... More

As a Catholic, and even for non Catholics , the Sagrada Familia is indeed a masterpiece not just for the present but for future generations to come as work is still continuing to embellish this beautiful creation. As you admire the intricate work of Antoni Gaudi, (Spanish Architect 1852-1926) the basilica's facade depicting the birth, life and death of Jesus... More

Do NOT miss Sagrada Familia if you are in Barcelona. This place was unbelievable! Read up on Antoni Gaudi before you go and make sure to buy your tickets online before you trip to save a long wait in line. Book them early in the day or late in the afternoon/evening to avoid the bigger crowds. If you have binoculars,... More

the basilica is unique in its planning and a master-piece. Although incomplete at present, the structure is imposing, the carvings intricate and very extensive for a modern structure. A must see on a trip to Spain.

This is not your average cathedral. It's undescribable like a lot of Gaudi's works. All I can say is, don't miss it if you're ever in Barcelona and pay the extra to go up the tower. It's an experience even if, like me, you are not religious.

We booked our tickets on the Sagrada Familia web site in order to avoid the inevitable long lines. It was a wise decision. We booked a 9:00-9:15 entrance time with the audio guide, and added the Top Views option, choosing the Tower on the Nativity façade at 11:30. It was relatively easy to navigate the site, and it was convenient... More

The outside does not do the La Sagrada Familia justice. Definitely book online in advanced with a either an audio guide or a guided tour (personally did an paid for an audio guide and was well worth it). If you are looking for a view of Barcelona a visit up one of the towers would be worth it, but for... More

I usually don't enjoy visiting cathedrals etc. as they tend to be po-faced, 'religious' experiences - which I don't believe represent Jesus or Christianity at all. La Sagrada Familia on the other hand is unbelievable! The background to Gaudi is both fascinating and moving. The building; its architecture and its expression of Christianity is fabulous. There's no 'shushing' either. It's... More
