Discover Barcelona's incredible Sagrada Familia cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site, during this skip-the-line visit. Join a guide as you bypass the lengthy lines, exploring this this sublime structure (still under construction more than 130 years after work began) and learning about its creator, Antoni Gaudí. Visit the museum beneath the cathedral and then scale one of the cathedral's sky-high spires with a skip-the-line tower ticket, enjoying panoramic vistas of Barcelona from up above.
  • Skip-the-line tour of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona with optional tower entry
  • Enjoy fast-track entry to the majestic Barcelona cathedral with a prebooked ticket
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed monument with a guide and learn all about Gaudi
  • Visit La Sagrada Familia museum to see a variety of artifacts such as design sketches and plaster models
  • Choose from several different start times to suit your schedule
  • Soak up bird’s-eye views of Barcelona from one of La Sagrada Familia’s towers after the tour
Leave the crowds behind as you explore Barcelona's incredible Sagrada Familia cathedral, skipping the entry lines for an in-depth visit to this amazing UNESCO World Heritage monument. During your tour you'll explore the interior of this architectural masterpiece by Barcelona's Antoni Gaudí, then climb one of the building's towering spires for superlative views of Barcelona. Best of all, your skip-the-line tickets let you avoid the lines at entry and when climbing the tower if you choose this option.
Begin your Sagrada Familia visit at either 2pm or 5pm (depending on the option selected), meeting your guide near the monument to start your visit. Grab your skip-the-line ticket, moving quickly past the often-lengthy lines outside, and straight into this incredible architectural monument with your guide.
As you explore the church's intricate interior, hear about the fascinating history of the church from your guide. Designated a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI, the building is structured as a Latin cross, spanning five aisles and supported by massive vaults that soar more than 230 feet (70m) above your head. Then head beneath the church to its museum to view various artifacts chronicling Gaudí's creation of what many consider his greatest masterpiece. The museum's collection includes drawings, plaster models and photos illustrating the building's still-ongoing construction. Many expect it will be finished in 2026, in time for the centennial of Gaudí's death.
Finish your tour by leaving your guide to climb one of the cathedral's soaring towers with your included skip-the-line ticket if you selected this option. Move past the long lines, traveling by elevator and stairs to the top of this lofty tower, where you'll take in beautiful views in all directions of Barcelona's top sights.

Please don’t miss this beautiful work of Gaudi. Our tour guide was wonderful. Our group wasn’t too big and our guide gave us so much great information. The Priority Access and the Tower Entry made our tour even more perfect!

Though admittedly not a cheap alternative, it is often one of the only alternatives to obtaining entry to Sagrada Familia. We tried the queue and were told the re were no more tickets(after abt an hour in line)!

We have recently enjoyed a wonderful tour via Julia’s travel. We had a problem finding the meeting point and had to ask a security guard at the Familia Sagrada, but once we arrived at Julia’s travel everything went swimmingly! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. Being able to skip the queue was essential as far as I’m concerned, there was a short wait going through security but I feel this was important. Thank you so much, I am sorry I cannot remember our guides name but we were part of the 10 o’clock group on Tuesday 30th April.

A must -see when in Barcelona...I didn't give 5 stars since the guide should have had one of those microphones and all of us with the earpieces...was SO hard to hear. Also, I would have liked to hear all the educational stuff while we were touring the church from the guide. Couldn't hear her and a few of our group actually left and ever came back so we lost time waiting for them but they never showed. So, in a nutshell she could have had more control of things. It's a very busy/crowded area and we were all a little lost at times. There were probably 25 on the tour. Also, there should have been a pre-warning of just how hard the walk down from the tower is...It's not the number of stairs, but the long, very narrow, very spiral staircase with no way to get out. If you have knee issues or are claustrophobic, you may want to re-think climbing the tower.

Don’t skip this. Well with time and money. This tour moves along quickly and if jammmed packed full of information. Our guide was efficient and knowledgeable. The Basilica is magical on the inside and the time we were on tour could have been easily wasted waiting in line for the self tour. Plan ahead though because you won’t be able to book same day

Very good tour of an exceptional place. We were unable to access the tower tour that we had paid for due to the towers being closed on this day. If a refund is available, we would appreciate that. Thank you
