Owner description: 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

So amazing to see! Highly recommend going inside! It's absolutely gorgeous. The outside and inside are completely different and on a sunny day, the beautiful windows are stunning.

Buy your ticket in advance as it’s usually sold out and get audio-guide for a greater appreciation of the Basilica. The grandeur and attention to detail is breathtaking.

We met with Sara in front of the Basilica's store. She did a great job, explained everything in detail and even gave us time to take pictures and refresh before going up to the tower. There's construction going on, but the tour worth every penny. This majestic piece of art is a must on your list if you visit Barcelona.

We did a tour of the cathedral with a guide who spoke the tour in English and Spanish. A tour is well worth the cost as tickets for on your own viewing go fast and you could be locked out depending on the crowds.

Central location, beautiful architecture, and interesting history. Don’t forget to check out below for the museum, as it holds lots of fascinating information about the construction process and the architect.
