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.

IT was absolutely breathtaking. The negative was that 3 of the 4 towers were under construction and from what I've heard from other travelers is that it's apparently always under construction. I did not have a chance to go up the tower. I recommend buying your ticket online ahead of time to avoid the line for tickets.

My trip to Barcelona was to experience Gaudi's masterpiece. It was so beautiful, I qas overwhelmed. We spent many hours to view many angles of the cathedral. Unforgettable experience.

Sagrada familia is a must see when in Barcelona! The architecture is beautiful inside and out! And the colourful stain glass windows all around are truly amazing! Standard tickets are €15 with more expensive options available for guided and audio tours. Would advise booking in advance as we seen many people get refused entry because they hadn't booked in advance.... More

Visited Sagrada Familia in 1998 and was impressed at that time with the grandeur and awe inspiring space. Visited this year with my 23 yr old daughter and to see the awe in her eyes only reinforced my current visit. The new audio guide, the noticeable structural changes and the low spring crowds made it almost seem like a renewed... More

As you tour the Basilica, everywhere you look (and even places you wouldn't look) there is so much detail it is hard to comprehend all of the planning and work that went into (and continues to go into) the construction of this amazing work in progress. The spires, the facades are all more than a simple review can describe and... More

The nativity facade, is an astonishing tapestry in stone. In the passion facade, Christ's story is depicted in S-shaped sequence from bottom to top. There is a cryptogram in which the numbers all add up to 33, Jesus' age at the time of crucifixion. The interior is awesome and Gaudi is actually buried here and you see red candles that... More

La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi's still unfinished masterpiece, defines the phrase "must see." From the outside, it may resemble a cluttered construction site, but once inside, it becomes clear why this is the major attraction in Catalonia. From the vaulted "forest" ceiling to the magnificent and brilliantly placed stained glass to the interior of the towers, which you climb in... More
