The Basics

While the Sagrada Familia looms large over Barcelona—it’s visible from many parts of the city—the cathedral should be seen up close and from within to truly be appreciated. Visitors can tour the interior on their own, on a guided tour, or with an audio guide. It’s also possible to take an elevator up one of the towers for sweeping views over the city.

Just about every sightseeing tour in Barcelona includes a stop here, as do hop-on hop-off bus tours, which also stop at Park Güell, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, and Plaça de Catalunya. It’s possible to combine a visit to the Sagrada Familia with a half-day trip to the nearby mountain abbey of Montserrat or the medieval city of Girona.

Mark is a phenomenal guide!
We had the BEST guide I think I’ve ever had on a tour. His knowledge of Gaudi, Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia was phenomenal. We feel very fortunate to have learned from the best. Thank you, Mark!

INCREDIBLE!

Sagrada Familia Skip-The-Line Guided Tour (English, Spanish or French)
Our guide was very knowledgable and he gave us all time to digest the information, answered all pur questions politely and understood that seeing something for the first time that you needed time to take it all in. What I loved most about our visit was the beautiful streams of coloured light from the stained glass windows inside the Sagrada Familia. They were literally out of this world, like I have imagined heaven to be!

Skip the Line ticket to Sagrada Familia and access to the tours in Barcelona
Sagrada familia is a wonderful place absolutely worth a visit! I have never seen anything like that before. I used the audio guide and this is a must as well. Because the facade and the interior are both full of symbols and the story of Gaudi himself is a blast!

Skip the Line: Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
My wife and daughter and I took this tour and it was fabulous. Our guide was Olga who was simply wonderful. She was friendly and made us feel very welcome. Olga was so knowledgeable and clearly has a real passion for her job and we left feeling we had great value for the money. We would not have got so much knowledge of Park Gruell and Sagrada Familia had we not had this tour. Highly recommended.

Private tour Sagrada Familia skip- the- line- tickets & Tapas and drinks
This was a great tour and a wonderful way to see Barcelona through local experiences rather than just tourist stops. Jenny, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and showed us places in Barcelona we never would have ventured on our own. Our tour was on Sunday and she did a great job adjusting our tour based upon places opened. The conclusion at Sagrada Familia is a final bonus to to a great day and is not to be missed.

How to Get There

The Sagrada Familia is centrally located near the Sagrada Familia metro stop on lines 2 and 5. It’s also easy to reach on foot from just about anywhere in the old city. The main entrance sits along Carrer Marina in front of the basilica’s nativity facade.

When to Get There

The Sagrada Familia is open throughout the year but can be extremely busy in summer, so a skip-the-line ticket is recommended. The facade looks markedly different when illuminated at night than it does during the day, so plan for at least a short visit during both periods. Note that the basilica holds an international mass each Sunday morning in several languages; entrance is free, but space is limited.

Visiting the Sagrada Familia Museum

The basement beneath the passion façade houses a museum covering the temple's construction through drawings, photographs, and plaster models. Entry to the museum is included in basilica admission, and visitors can see the working modeling studio where Gaudi’s restored maquettes are reproduced to aid in the structure’s ongoing construction.
