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.

Make sure you go to Sagrada Famiia when you are in Barcelona. Book tickets online ahead of time, all tickets are time stamped with a half hour entry window. I recommend getting there early so that you can explore the outside befor going in

Must seen in your trip to Barcelona. No. 1 on your list to Barcelona. I recommend taking of the guided tours inside as it is very useful.

Maybe it could be tight for him. I think there's too much to see there so my recommendation is to skip the tower. Hope it helps

We bought ours a month in advance. When we checked earlier (like 2 and a half months earlier), the dates we were interested in were not posted yet. We didn't have a hard time selecting a time that's convenient for us, but... More
