Please take the time to visit here while in Barcelona. No matter where you've been you won't have seen anything like this on your travels. You have to get there very early to avail of tickets for the tour inside. Even if you don't get...More
This is one of the most unique buildings I've ever seen both architecturally as well as a place of worship. The organic nature of the nativity facade as it seems to rise from the grounds and is teeming with nature and vitality to the stark...More
Gaudi's still unfinished cathedral is magnificent. You could stand and look at it for hours and your eye would be endlessly caught by the intricate detail and styling. Pay to go up one of the towers but book in advance because there are often very...More
I bought the combo ticket (plus audioguide) from Gaudi House Museum for €22 a day before I visit the basilica. It does reduce time to wait in line to buy ticket on-site. The basilica itself is amazing. I love the interior as much as I...More
Everyone else is there to see it too which means incredible lines, incredible price, and "hanger on " restaurants, souvenir shops, etc. etc. all trying to make a buck or should I say a Euro. This side show circus was a big turn off for...More
The maestro is a genius and the people who patronized him visionaries! The interplay of spirit within the natural. Flow within form and scale is a sight to behold. How masterful the artisans were and are as they reclaim the vision of Gaudi and his...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

We did not have the same experience when we visited the Sagrada Familia. However, we used a guide and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Because there were so many open markets surrounding the church, we waited until we had finished our tour and visited the cheaper outside markets.

I am sorry that your experience was a bit disappointing. We went with a tour and the guide made a point of tell our group that once you leave to enter the gift shop there wasn't a reentry back into the Basilica. Though we all like to export on our own, the guide's advise was well worth the price of the tour.
