Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia is one of the world’s most unique religious sites and a must-see for visitors to Barcelona. Thanks to its star status, there are dozens of ways to visit—to help you choose the right one for you, see our suggestions below.

For First-Timers
La Sagrada Familia is the first stop on many Barcelona itineraries. Get acquainted with the city on a sightseeing tour that covers the colorful neighborhoods, distinct architecture, and numerous green spaces, all before heading to the cathedral for a one-hour guided tour with priority access tickets. You'll get a comprehensive look at all Barcelona has to offer and get an in-depth look at the city's most popular site.

For Those Short on Time
More than 2.8 million travelers visit La Sagrada Familia every year—if you don't have time to wait in those sorts of lines, opt for a skip-the-line tour and enjoy a hassle-free, one-hour tour of the cathedral's interior. Whether you're a return visitor to the city or just want to maximize your time, this is a flexible option with several time slots available to fit into your schedule.

For Planners
If you know what you want to see, book a private guided tour that includes entrance to the cathedral in addition to the ability to tailor the itinerary to your interests and spend longer visiting the sights that most interest you. Private tours are a flexible option ideal for visitors who would rather skip a group tour and get undivided attention from a knowledgeable tour guide.

For Art Lovers
Gaudi is one of Barcelona's most celebrated figures, and joining an art tour of the city will give you skip-the-line access to his masterpiece Sagrada Familia and take you to see his popular UNESCO-listed Park Güell. Culture lovers will get to admire the dramatic Sagrada Familia façade and see the rest of the city's creative side.

For Bucket-Listers
Those looking to check multiple boxes off their bucket list can book a tour that combines a visit to La Sagrada Familia with time at Montserrat, another of the region's famed religious sites. Upgrade to skip the line.

For Cruise Visitors
If arriving in Barcelona by cruise ship, catch the city's most impressive monument with a shore excursion that makes the most of your time on land with free port pickup and drop-off, guaranteed on-time return to the ship, and skip-the-line access to the Sagrada Familia. These tours are exclusively for cruise ship passengers, offering the opportunity to take in the top sights without worrying about missing the boat.
