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.

I visited there about a year ago. I traveled approximately 10 European countries, but you would never find such a place in other countries! Sagrada Familia is so special, mervelous, and beyond your imagination. It is the most impressive place I have ever visited. Although it costs, but Sagrada Familia will never disappoint you. It really worth visiting!! Wonderful!!Amazing!! There... More

Sagrada Familia... Architected by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, Vegetarian, used ceramic waste for ornation, wrongly attributed to the word Gaudy, used 3D models instead of drawings, died from a tram hit... The church which is consecrated as a Minor Basilica is still unfinished after 133 years... I visited this place in October 2015, writing a review now

This building is magnificent. It truly takes the idea of church architecture and turns it on its head. Make sure you book in advance though, they werent selling tickets there when i went.

Our private guide gave us historical perspective as well as pointed out and explained about so many details on the exterior. Lighting inside through the stained glass was wonderful.

This is the most unusual building I have ever seen. Gaudi - do I have to say more ? It's no.1 must see. Remember to book tickets online before the visit, it's not possible to buy tickets same day.

Without knowing too much about Antoni Gaudi before arriving in Barcelona, we leave with an absolute awe for his genius. The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is an absolute must for anyone visiting Barcelona. Even if you have seen all of the best Basilica's in Europe, this will still take your breath away. And to think they are still building... More
