The Basics

While the Sagrada Familia looms large over Barcelona—it’s visible from many parts of the city—the cathedral should be seen up close and from within to truly be appreciated. Visitors can tour the interior on their own, on a guided tour, or with an audio guide. It’s also possible to take an elevator up one of the towers for sweeping views over the city.

Just about every sightseeing tour in Barcelona includes a stop here, as do hop-on hop-off bus tours, which also stop at Park Güell, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, and Plaça de Catalunya. It’s possible to combine a visit to the Sagrada Familia with a half-day trip to the nearby mountain abbey of Montserrat or the medieval city of Girona.

Skip the Line: Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed this half-day tour! Our guide was kind and full of knowledge. She accommodated the pace of the entire group. The bus between the two sites was comfortable and clean. I highly recommend this tour if you actually want to know the history of Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell and not just pictures. We got those too! Bring sunglasses/hat, water, and good walking shoes!
Highly recommended tour!

Barcelona and Sagrada Familia Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up
Vicente our tour guide was absolutely amazing! He gave us valuable safety advice and recommended great places to eat. We had a wonderful drive around the city after visiting the Sagrada Familia. He was very kind to take photos of us as well. I recommended him to other people I knew who were also visiting Barcelona. Thank you for a fun and great experience! I’m still saying “Vale” 😂

Sagrada Familia Private Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Our tour guide Ariel was very knowledgeable and definitely added to the experience. The only reason I subtracted a star was that I booked this tour 2 months ago and 90 minutes before the start I was contacted and told the time moved up 30 minutes! We had a morning tour booked and had planned on walking to Sagrada Familia, but instead had to take a taxi to make this earlier time. I would have loved more than an hour and a half notice for something that was booked so long ago!
Very informative Luigi was great I would want him again

Sagrada Familia Skip-The-Line Guided Tour (English, Spanish, French or German)
So happy I booked this tour the day before we went to Barcelona! We were only there for a day because we were on a cruise and this was the perfect quick way to see the church. Not too long not too short, our guide was super fun and knowledgeable about the Sagrada familia. Easy meetup place, and we walked right into the church after a quick security line! I highly recommend!
Good tour but needs improvements

Combo Tour: Fast Track Sagrada Familia & Park Güell with the Best of Gaudí
Tour of Sagrada Familia and Park Guell were wonderful. Great guides. We only saw these 2 things so tour information was misleading. Walk from the church to the bus for Park Guell was very long. Would have been ugly had it been raining.

Skip the Line: Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
This was an absolutely must do, incredible tour. Our guide, Violetta, was so knowledgeable and friendly. She accommodated my aging parents who were having some trouble with walking, and kept my teenage kids engaged and interested. Her explanations all about Gaudi, the park and La Sagrada Familia will stick with me forever. We were all very pleased with this tour and highly recommend it.

Fast Track Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
Well organised tour and our guide was very good and attentive. We really enjoyed our morning. The Sagrada Familia is beautiful and well worth a visit. We were a little disappointed as we had altered our packing to ensure we had appropriate shoes and long shorts/dresses (which meant packing extra shoes) and actually people were dressed in sandals and short shorts all over the place which we were told not to wear.
A tour not to be missed While visiting Barcelona!

Sagrada Familia Private Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
The Sagrada Familia is perhaps one of the most beautiful buildings we have ever seen. Our guide Elsa was on time, extremely attentive, and knowledgeable. The church was absolutely stunning. The stained glass illuminated the church beautifully. We highly recommend this tour.

Barcelona Tour with Licensed Guide: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and La Pedrera
Our guide was an absolute delight! She loves her city and was very enthusiastic to share her knowledge with us. We were amazed by both the interior and exterior of La Sagrada Familia! It was the highlight of a trip that took us to six countries. The genius of Gaudi is unmatched.

When to Get There

The Sagrada Familia is open throughout the year but can be extremely busy in summer, so a skip-the-line ticket is recommended. The facade looks markedly different when illuminated at night than it does during the day, so plan for at least a short visit during both periods. Note that the basilica holds an international mass each Sunday morning in several languages; entrance is free, but space is limited.

Visiting the Sagrada Familia Museum

The basement beneath the passion façade houses a museum covering the temple's construction through drawings, photographs, and plaster models. Entry to the museum is included in basilica admission, and visitors can see the working modeling studio where Gaudi’s restored maquettes are reproduced to aid in the structure’s ongoing construction.
