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.

This was on our list. An amazing building better inside than outside! One piece of advise it says to book on line as its quicker/faster. This is only true if you have a good wi-fi spot, I was on my 3G and it wouldn't let me book so we moved to the Costa round the corner bought a bottle of... More

There are no words to describe such a beautiful place. The genius of Gaudí in his maximum level. At first sight you will be impressed about the huge architecture symbol, but one minute later, you will understand the religious symbol on it. It's a must. Really really suggested. The visit of inside space is another fantastic experience. Do it.

This is an absolute must when visiting Barcelona. We first saw Sagrada Familia from the Tour Bus and was impressed with it then, but didn't realise till we visited it the next day that the part you see on the tour is the back! The whole of the exterior is impressive but as you go round to the entrance from... More

This is a must. Sagrada Familia is massive, impressive, original, extreme and intriguing. If you're a huge fan of modern architecture you're going to love both the inside and the outside. If you love art and history then the inside might not impress you as much as the outside. I'm part of this second description. I enjoy visiting churches and... More

Still not finished, many parts under construction and not accessible. Maybe in summer, with sunshine, the impression will be more exciting. Will come back and visit again

Definitely a 'must' visit. Allow plenty of time to enjoy it all. We booked the basic tour and were very pleased, although it would have been exciting to access towers, however not needed and this is a pricey extra. Fabulous basilica, would advise going around the information area first to get a feel for the place, as it explains the... More

Whatever your religious beliefs this visit will not fail to inspire you. It is truly amazing. You really have to be there to experience it's full glory. There is so much to take in that you need a couple of hours to really do it justice.
