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.

Inside and out this building is a work of art. Cannot wait to visit again when it's completed, however long it takes. The stained glass inside is gorgeous. Our tour guide was excellent. Great souvenir shop also.

Antonio Gaudi's masterpiece dedicated to the Holy family. It's amazing to have this type of massive church being built in our lifetime. I'm thankful my husband arranged a private tour. It's best experienced with a tour guide. Buy tkts ahead online. Try to see the inside of the church after 5pm. On a clear day, the stain glass windows on... More

This Catholic cathedral can be visited by all and it will generate interest and 'awe' at any level and any faith. It seems to symbolise the city of Barcelona and tells the artistic devotion of one man in particular, 'Gaudi' the architect.

The exterior takes your breath away and the interior almost defies belief. This truly is Gaudi's masterpiece.

Spoilt a little by the scaffolding, but this can't be helped as it is being improved and updated. Would be nice to see it when it is finally completed. Nice view from outside from the park. Good cafes, restaurants and bars in walking distance. Metro right aside.

If you are in Barcelona you have to go and take picture of this building to say that you have been here it is incredible seeing every ounce of detail that has went into it. It is without a doubt amazing. I don't even think that a picture can capture the beauty until you have actually seen this building.

The most amazing visit. We purchased our tickets on line, fast track with a guide and whilst it is more expensive it is well worth it. The guide Carlos was witty, friendly and informative. His knowledge was compelling and a must when doing the tour which lasted over an hour. The beauty of each faced holds its own story. The... More

Sagrada Familia is one of a kin and has left me truly inspired due to its very distinct architecture, which is different to all cathedrals I have seen befor. A must see when visiting Barcelona!
