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.

Such a beautiful basilica! Loved learning about the thought and detail Gaudi put into this masterpiece. Went to the top of the Passion Facade which wasn't worth it. The views were not that great and not much to see. Be prepared to get there at...More

They are very organized with prepaid tickets. Never felt crowded. Was my second time back within 3 years and what a remarkable change on the interior.

Make sure you go earlier in the morning. We went around noon and could only get in at 5 PM, If possible buy your tickets in advance, they alow 100 people at a time.

Nothing left to say about this wonder of leftovers known throughout the world. So I will just advise anyone who wants to visit do not forget to enter the small school built by Gaudí in an adjacent area to the children of the first workers....More

The basilica is a piece of art! We visited it twice and it looks different during day light and in the evening with the misterious light coming from inside. Absolutely beautiful!

Sagrada Familia is a Mysterious place still in process of building. It is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).

Spectacular building although would highly recommend booking tickets in advance we got there at 11 and as we hadn't pre-booked we couldn't go inside until 3pm which meant 4 hours wasted time hanging around waiting or wandering up and down the streets,

I would like to know what I can visit with a basic ticket? Is it only the church? Are there any time limits for the basic tour (that is do I need to complete the tour within a limited time slot)?

There is no time restriction. Once you are admitted, you spend your time walking around yourself, unless you take the guided tour ticket, which is not basic. I don't know what the "basic" ticket is, as we did the audio... More

It looks as though tickets for tomorrow are unavailable online. Would it be possible to wait in line for tickets, or is it a lost cause?

Hi, There are some independent booking agents along la rambla, perhaps you can try that. I booked mine there
Are tickets purchased from Sagrada Familia website mailed via post or emailed? I'm afraid they will arrive in time if via post. Thank you

We purchased tickets online through the the Sagrada Familia website. They sent PDF of tickets and we just needed to show from our phone, but we also printed them out just in case.
