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.

On this second trip I got to see the completed interior of sagrada familia. Amazing is the only word to describe it. Special highlights are the stained glass windows and the ceiling. The audio guide offers useful information and worth paying extra for. If you want to go up in the lift, get there as early as possible or prebook... More

I can wholeheartedly say that this is by far the most beautiful architecture i've ever seen. Extraordinary details all over. Wherever my eyes wandered, i discovered unique details beyond anything i've ever seen. The tought of all the handcraft that's been done on this piece of art for over hundred years are overwhelming. There is a museum underneath that's also... More

Coming up to this structure was nothing to being bride it, it was huge and I was blown away with the information our tour guide was telling us. We had a chance to buy souvenirs and barter with the stall owners in front of the main entrance. It is well worth a look and to just see how its all... More

A lovely day in a beautiful city (and I don't like cities!) The cathedral is certainly worth a visit, the towering modern structure is a wonder of engineering.

I've been to Barcelona a few times and the first thing most folks ask you is if you've seen the Sagrada Familia. And yes, you can see it from the outside which is an amazing work of art in itself. But you have not experienced the Sagrada until you have taken time to sit inside and just look around. Unlike... More

This "church" is simply a must. Having not seen it when staying in Barcelona would be like Paris without the Eifel Tower. But don't forget to book your tickets online before you go there. - Otherwise you'll be "punished" with a long queue!

AS others have said, this is a must see attraction in Barcelona. There is nothing in the world like it. Still under construction, it will be amazing when finished. The architecture is unique the statues are numerous and beautiful. Even the choir loft is totally unusual. We took the Nativity Tower visit and enjoyed going up the tower, walked across... More

I booked my tickets online in advance for this, in order to be able to go up the towers as well as being inside the Basilica. Be aware that the staff are quite rude, when ordering you to get into queues etc and their time keeping isn't great. The building is fantastic, although I don't really understand why it's yet...

It was totally worth visiting =) as it was one of the most beautiful monuments that I've ever seen in my life... I bought the entrance + audio guice + visit to the tower tickets online from their website and got no line to enter. Then I went to the line to get the audio guide (really quick) and started...
