Overview

Be the first to step inside La Sagrada Familia just before the crowds arrive on this morning tour in Barcelona. This tour allows you inside the unfinished church before it is open to the general public. Learn from your guide about the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Stroll among the columns as large as trees, admire the lavish decoration, and view the colorful stained glass windows that make this structure a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and upgrade to include access to the Tower. Afterwards, take a walk through nearby Parca de Gaudi if you wish.
  • Early access gets you unobstructed views of the exterior and interior
  • Learn about the cathedral's history with commentary from your guide
  • After the tour, you can stay and admire the cathedral and grounds as long as you want
  • Upgrade to include access to the tower for views over Barcelona

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Three perks in one: skip the lines and beat the main crowds into the Sagrada, and opt to visit a tower.
Make your way to La Sagrada Familia, one of Barcelona's best-known landmarks, to meet your guide and tour group. Get there before the popular site is open to the general public. Avoid long lines and be one of the first groups allowed inside.

Before entry, marvel at the ornate exterior of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring sharp, soaring spires and incredible architectural detail.

Follow your guide inside for a tour of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí's masterwork. Look up for dizzying views of 230-foot (70-meter) vaults, colorful stained glass windows and soaring ceilings. Walk down the five aisles in the shape of a Latin cross while listening to your guide's commentary about Gaudí's architectural philosophy and inspiration. Learn about the reason for the church's unfinished state; construction begun in 1882 and was only a quarter complete when it halted in 1926. 

Opt to upgrade your experience with exclusive access to the Tower on the Passion façade, where you will have a panoramic views of the city from a height of 215 feet (65 meters). Please note that access to the tower requires a climb of roughly 400 steps.

Following your tour, you are free to explore the site further on your own, you may wish to visit Parca de Gaudi while you are in the area..

An excellent guide makes a big difference as there is so much to see and learn about, and we were lucky to get one
Best in Barcelona

This is the must see attraction in Barcelona and booking before you go is also a must as it seems every one wants to go at the same time. We opted for an early Morning guided visit with a very knowledgeable guide who explained everything for us and we would have missed those important and interesting facts. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent Tour! Highly Recommend!

This tour was fantastic! Learned a lot of information from a local guide that probably wouldn't have been available on the recordings. It's a beautiful space with a long history and definitely worth a trip!

I enjoyed the tour and appreciated our guide, Olga. She shared her detailed knowledge about the basilica, which really added to the tour experience.

Very unprofessional tour guide. We booked early entrance tour but our tour guide arrived 30 minutes after opening for general public. We ended up starting the tour 1 hour later.

A must see in Barcelona ... the guide was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was not too long. The 400 steps down from the tour were a little dizzying but worth it.

"Quiosc Bar" should say "snack shack across the street". Apparently "quiosc" is a type of bar, not the name of a bar. Learn from my fail. The church is everything you'd want. The tour guide gives you ear buds (to keep) and a small radio on a color-coded lanyard (NOT to keep). You hear the guide well despite the crowd. Even early "to beat the crowd" there are a lot of people. 3x as many are there during "normal time". Would definitely do it again!
