Started in 1882 and still under construction -- it probably won't be finished until at least 2026 -- a visit gives your the rare opportunity to watch craftsmen build what's already a historical and ... Read more
architectural icon. Designed by Antoni Gaudi, the story of the church's construction is as byzantine and complicated as the structure itself. The three façades of the church each have a different look and feel. The ornate Nativity Façade, covered with depictions of Jesus' life, is the only one completed before Gaudi's death, and critics say it best represents the architect's intentions. Both the Nativity and Passion towers are open to the public.

Absolutely stunning. Doesn't matter if you're a local or a tourist there's always something new to see here as it's constantly being constructed and newly added to. Such a breathtaking experience.

La Sagrada familia is an unfinished Catholic Church in Barcelona. It's interesting as a piece of architecture, but keep in mind that it will almost always be under construction. It adds to its charm.

Really interesting concept. There is a panoramic elevator inside, which seems to fit, despite this being a catedral.

I’ve been here twice and I definitely see myself coming back in my next visit to Barcelona. It’s amazing how Gaudi’s legacy is celebrated in this place. Though you know the construction is not done, it always feels gratifying to see the progress. The audio tour recording is very succinct, makes you feel like you’re speaking with Gaudi. You’ll get to understand what were his thoughts when he came up with his work. The well-narrated audio gives you inner peace while you walk around the basilica.

One of the most amazing architectures in modern history. You have to see it to know how gothic can be so cool and untraditional. A must to visit in Barcelona, and don’t miss the inside tour of the stained glass.

An amazing place. Recommend going just before sunset to see the sun make the entire cathedral glow with colour.

This is no doubt the highlight of a Barcelona trip. You cannot go to Barcelona and not visit La Sagrada Familia. Barcelona is Gaudi's city and La Sagrada Familia is his masterpiece. One of the most beautiful and amazing architecture of all time! The details are genius and every bit interesting. Can't wait for its target completion on 2026, Gaudi's death centennial.

While I am usually not much of a fan of touring historical monuments; I like to explore more local aspects; la Sagrada Família blew me away. Gaudi's architecture is truely one to behold, and seeing the inside is definitely worth the money you have to pay.

Now that the place is rebuilt, it is beautiful to visit! Definitely a go-to place, make sure you go downstairs to look at the history of the church

The Sagrada Familia, Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí's fabled Roman Catholic church that's been 135 years in the making has made major progress in recent years. Now a visit to the structure estimated for completion between 2026 and 2028 feels more like a meander through a sacred space than trespassing on a construction site. The roof's on and you can admire the indoor rainbows created by light spilling through the multi-colored stained glass windows. Ladies: Have a scarf handy if you are wearing a revealing top or bottom to cover yourself up for the visit inside the holy site, especially should you want to pray in the chapel. In a word: Breathtaking. Purchase a timed ticket online (basic is 15 euros, $16) and then be ready to wander.

The interior is absolutely breathtaking. Skip the audio tour - the info boards throughout gave enough info. A live guide might be nice though. A definite must-see.
