1) Visit the Sagrada Familia

This architectural masterpiece by the master Gaudí is a must in Barcelona, ​​you cannot go to Barcelona without will visit the Sagrada Familia.

  • Did you know

The architect Antonio Gaudí, nicknamed "the madman", was run over by a tram: as he dressed like an ordinary person, he was not rescued quickly enough.


It is since November 7, 2010 that the Holy Family has been consecrated as a basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. More information on wikipedia.


La Sagrada Familia is a bit of a consecration of Gaudí's dreams, unfortunately his thoughts have followed him, so he never had the opportunity to see his complete work. That being said, even today, the Sagrada Familia is still not finished.



Once you enter the Sagrada Familia, you are crossing the border between dream and reality. A wonderful universe where colors, vaults and columns combine to give a perfect balance.

As for the tours, now you can buy tickets to the tours only online (to know the opening hours of the tours and reserve your place with a guide, and without a guide).

Indeed, work is still being done for the towers and on certain days, the towers close, without our knowing it in advance.

To get a better view of the city, I recommend visiting the highest tower (75 m): the Passion Tower.

  • If you want a PRIVATE tour with a guide, José,.
  • You can also do a “Combo” to take a private guided tour of Park Güell + the Sagrada Familia with José ().

2) Skip-the-line entrance to visit the Sagrada Familia quickly

More and more people are looking to book tickets before their visit so they don't have to queue, and they are right.


Be aware that tourists come from all over the world to visit the Sagrada Familia. Every day more than 6000 people queue for hours to finally enter this building. (2 million people / year).


Estimated waiting time in the city: 1h30 to 2h, it bites a bit and it's especially a shame to waste time during your stay!


To save time, I advise you to get a skip-the-line entrance to the Sagrada Familia.


The simple skip-the-line ticket to visit the Sagrada Familia (link) (which allows you to skip the lines). Does not include: The museum. There may be no more skip-the-line tickets depending on the date of the visit. So you can have some with the Audioguide option (link), or with the Audioguide + 1 Tour option (link).

  • The skip-the-line ticket (which allows you to skip the lines) to visit the Sagrada Familia and the museum with a guide (link) and here for a private visit with a guide, José. Duration 1h30. This is the one I recommend.
  • You want a guided visit to Park Güell + the Sagrada Familia with José ().

In fact, this (increasingly popular) skip-the-line ticket with a guide is really cool. It will allow you to enjoy a guided tour by a licensed guide (José) who will inform you about the hidden symbols of the Sagrada Familia, the surprising life of Gaudí and answer all your questions.

The skip-the-line ticket with the convertible bus pass (link) of the day (not bad because this Hop and off bus allows you to get on and off whenever you want. Stops in front of the Sagrada Familia. Every 20 minutes and, therefore, will allow you to visit the most beautiful places in Barcelona (in short, a nice compromise).

In addition, the bus passes through Parc Güell (skip the lines here), and also through the Born district (where the Picasso museum is located, the best stop is the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona). However, this ticket does not allow you to visit one of the towers or visit the museum!

3) What to know before visiting the Sagrada Familia

More than 2 million visitors every year, which makes more than 5500 people / day.

If you are visiting the interior of the basilica and one of the towers, especially start your itinerary by climbing the tower because the time indicated on your entrance ticket concerns.

If you have opted for a jump line with an audio guide, once inside the Sagrada you will have to go directly with your printed ticket.

  • The simple skip-the-line ticket to visit the basilica (link) (which allows you to skip the line). Does not include: The museum.
  • There may be no more skip-the-line tickets depending on the date of the visit. So you can have some with the Audioguide option (link), or with the Audioguide + 1 Tour option (link).

To visit the Sagrada, count between 1h30 and 2h. Take your device. If you do not opt ​​for a skip-the-line ticket, count € 15

The Sagrada Familia site offers guided tours of the Sagrada Familia for about 20 euros for 50 minutes. These are the cheapest prices on the market. This is because the groups are extremely large and therefore interaction with the guide is very difficult. So that's not cool ...

In addition, it will be very difficult to find a time slot with a guide ... that's why I do not recommend this visit, it really spoils the work of Gaudí!

The entrance for children under 10 years is free but you must take it at the same time as yours, and present it when you arrive at the basilica. THEREFORE, THINK ABOUT YOUR IDENTITY CARD !!!

People with a disability greater than 65% and their companion also benefit from free admission.

There are discounts for people over 65, young people under 18 and students upon presentation of proof at the entrance of the monument.

4) La Sagrada Familia in a few figures

Gaudí dedicated 43 years to the Sagrada Familia. He started running the project at age 31. Gaudí planned 18 laps.

The tower of Jesus, the highest tower of the Sagrada Familia rises to more than 170 meters (well it will rise since it is still only in project).

Address: Calle Mallorca, 401. Metro: line 2 or 5 (Sagrada Familia)
