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.

Unbelievable beauty

My family and I took the audio tour and couldn't get enough of the beauty, symbolism and artistic wonder that this basilica offers. Highly recommend.

This was to be the high point of our trip to Barcelona. It wasn't. Seriously underwhelmed. The only side that looked good was the side with the original workmanship. The modern additions just looked that - modern and out of place. Best view is from the park across the road. Once it is fully completed in my opinion it will... More

By far, the most beautiful and breathtaking Basilica I have ever visited. At a minimum, the audio guide is a must so you discover the story and hidden facts behind the construction. Suggest the Top Views ticket with the audio. make sure you watch your time as you must enter the Basilica within your 15 minute window. Once inside you... More

This breath taking basilica is a must when in Barcelona. Be sure not to miss it. We bought tickets to admit online at hotel and arrived after lunch, the wait was reasonable. we did the tower tour which takes an elevator up a tower and you walk down. This gives you the scope of the enormous project that has been... More

You don't have to have a religeous faith to appreciate this fabulous building. It still isn't finished (due to be completed in 2026), but it has been consecrated for the past 6 years. The sense of awe that you experience as you step inside is almost overwhelming. It is full of light. I would recommend you use the audioguide as... More

It is a big atraction of Barcelona and very interesting, but may be a bit overated. Maybe the fact that was still in construction afected the image we saw.

The story and the architecture of this building will prompt numerous a-ha moments. Gaudi was an intriguing architect and a quirky figure who helped shape Barcelona's streetscape and its worldview. Take advantage of the audio-guided tour for the information provided, but be aware that the numbered locations are not necessarily in logical order.

Barcelona is an amazing city but La Sagrada Familia is indeed the highlight. To avoid long queues buy your tickets in advance through internet and preferably pick an earlier slot for your visit. Towers have an additional cost but I think it is worth it. Audio guides are excellent to appreciate and understand the beauty of La Sagrada Familia, don't... More

The work of Gaudi is work in progress that is paid for by the people. A portion of your ticket pass goes toward the completion. Easy metro ride from the center of Barcelona. So much to see, the intricate front of the birth of Christ to the stark back of the death. Inside is a myriad of light that changes... More

As many of the reviewers below have said, a must see building with a different and interesting look. Great conversations spring up as you walk around and through this place. The towers are also fantastic and in my opinion worth going up, maybe not best for anyone with vertigo though.
