What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tour

Explore La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona with a skip-the-line ticket!

With morning and afternoon tours available, you choose the best time to meet your skip-the-line guide. You’ll breeze right past the entrance queue, where visitors might wait for up to two hours during the peak season to enter La Sagrada Familia. Your thorough walking tour will cover the history and architectural wonders of this still-unfinished, awe-inspiring Gothic church.

Construction began on this UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1882, and it was consecrated and deemed a “minor basilica” by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. It is anticipated that construction won’t be complete until at least 2026, 100 years after architect Gaudi’s death.

From your guide, you’ll learn about the symbolism behind Gaudi’s designs for La Sagrada Familia’s spires, facades and interior, which is designed as a Latin cross with five aisles. The ornamental details are incredible in their opulence; visitors admire in fascination the vaults that reach 230 feet (70 meters) high.

After your walking tour of the church, spend some time examining the exhibits in La Sagrada Familia Museum, with drawings, models, photographs and information about the ongoing development of the impressive building. Browse these historic artifacts at your own pace; your tour ends in the museum and you may linger as long as you like.
