The Sagrada Família is one of the most iconic landmarks in Europe, and it’s easy to see why - the tall, gravity-defying spires, the impressive facades, the countless figures that adorn this ginormous basilica… there is so much to see, so many glorious secrets here, and this is why it is the most visited building in the whole of Spain. Discover it for yourself on this intimate but short tour - perfect for those who only have a few hours to discover Barcelona! You’ll be accompanied by an expert, English-speaking local guide who will bring the church to life for you with stories and anecdotes about Gaudí and the building itself.
Understand your Surroundings with our Expert Guide
The church is still under construction, and has been since 1882. The work has been near-constant, but sadly Gaudí himself only saw the completion of one facade, one tower, the crypt and the apse before he passed away. This was his final work, a labor of love, and something he made many personal sacrifices for - your guide will tell you all about it, and about how Gaudí considered it his own holy mission…
Skip the Line and Head Inside
You’ll enjoy our exclusive Skip the Line access, meaning you can bypass the long lines of visitors waiting to step inside this magnificent building. Head straight in and discover the magic that lies inside: heavy doors hand-carved with intricate vines, and incredible pillars that seem to stretch up and up forever. There is a true sense of the ethereal inside the Sagrada Família, with willowy structures bathed in the light of many stained glass windows. It’s somewhere that truly takes your breath away!
Explore the Sagrada Família Museum
When the tour itself has finished, you can stay in the church and explore further - discover as much of this magnificent building as you can, and visit the amazing Sagrada Família Museum. Here you’ll see the actual scale models Gaudí used when planning this incredible feat of architecture and engineering.
See Incredible Views from the Passion or Nativity Tower
Choose the option "with Towers" which also includes a ticket to the very top of the church’s dizzyingly-high towers on either the “Passion” or “Nativity” facades. Your guide will see to it that you make it to the elevator, after which you’ll be free to spend time enjoying the views of Barcelona and the streets below, before heading back down. Tickets to the towers are limited, so this is a great opportunity to see the Sagrada Família from a unique perspective. Walk across high bridges between the spindly towers and inspect the colorful pinnacles and carvings close up to appreciate this monument in its complexity.
This small group tour is a magical way to discover the Sagrada Família, especially if you’ve only got a short time to explore Barcelona! Memories from this tour are ones which last a lifetime…
