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.

Practical info: The tickets can be purchased online, and it saves time (one or two days in advance, since they are usually bought out quickly). As for the state of basilica in July 2016 - the tower ticket is completely not worthy (it's additional 15 euros to the plain basilica ticket) - you mainly go up and down the stairs,... More

This is a must for anyone of any age to visit the Basilica when in Barcelona. Bucket list kind of stuff. Lines can be huge depending on the time of year so read the reviews, take the advice and plan accordingly. Words can't describe the detail of the stone and amazing stained glass inside and out. We visited at the... More

Entry is expensive and I strongly suggest paying extra for the tickets that allow you to skip the line.

This is one of the best architecture I have seen (I am not an expert though). We took the audio guided tour. Based on the earlier suggestions, we had booked our tickets earlier. Really enjoyed this place.

I have visited this church before, but never saw it from the inside. This time I did, and I strongly recommend to go in!

We almost didn't go because there are long lines and it was raining but we ended up signing up for a tour which allowed us to skip the line and have a guide. Not sure the extra cost was worth it if time and waiting isn't a bother for you but going is definitely worth it. It's an amazing work... More

This is not your normal cathedral. It is the vision of architect Gaudi and is a work in progress. . The north side shows scenes from the birth of Christ, the south shows scenes from His crucifiction. The interior is light and open. I found this place to be very reverential and beautiful, inspiring in me a sense of the... More
