Overview
More
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

Antoni Gaudí, one of the most famous figures of Catalan culture and world architecture, spent over 40 years designing the Temple of the Sagrada Familia. Visiting this unfinished and ongoing work of art is an experience to be had. The quality of light and mere...More

We really enjoyed our visit to the church. I do not recommend a group tour; very chaotic in the large group. I feel like we would have been better with the audio tour.

This is a Gaudi building with its fantastic curves and shapes. Inside the cay-cathedral is a kaleidoscope of colors and geometric shapes in the ceilings and walls that boggle the mind. The exit is modern and one can discern the non-Gaudi influence here, but it...More

When you think Barcelona, first thought that pops in your mind is Sagrada Familia. We pre-booked our ticket to avoid big lines, which was a wise decision. The place is crowded with huge lines, once you enter the basilica you cannot help but admire the...More
