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.

Tour guide was the best one we’ve had so far in all the tour we’ve done! From what I can recall from his introduction, he is a professor in a university in Barcelona, making him an expert in Gaudi’s life and works. It proved to be true during the tour. The way he introduced and brought to life Antoni Gaudi was amazing. I don’t know if I would have appreciated my trip to Barcelona if it were not for this tour and our highly incredible guide. Kudos!

Sagrada Familia and Montserrat Small Group Tour with Hotel pick-up
Our tour guide Matt was completely amazing! He made us feel welcome and at ease. He had so much patience with my Mom who struggles with steps and inclines. He made sure we were included in every way. He’s also extremely knowledgeable in the history of both Montserrat and Barcelona/ Sagrada familia. We enjoyed his commentaries and insights and learned much from him. It is obvious that Matt loves what he does!!

Priority Access: Best of Barcelona Tour Including Sagrada Familia
The gothic quarter is impressive. Barcelona is over 2000 years old, imagine that. The Sagrada Familia is a sight to behold. No picture can do it justice.

Barcelona in One Day: Sagrada Familia, Park Guell & Old Town with Hotel Pick-up
Great day yesterday. Of course, La Sagrada Familia was the most fantastic and memorable thing, but the whole day was great. Marco was very knowledgeable and promoted our group cohesion and fun (and kept us on schedule.) He was also attentive to individual needs while never letting them interfere with the tour as a whole.

Our tour guide, Suzy, made this such a fun tour. She was very knowledgeable and energetic. Park Guell was one of my favorite Gaudi experiences because it was interesting to see how Gaudi's genius played out in an outdoor park. La Sagrada Familia was strange and wonderful.

Private tour Sagrada Familia skip- the- line- tickets & Tapas and drinks
This was a great tour and a wonderful way to see Barcelona through local experiences rather than just tourist stops. Jenny, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and showed us places in Barcelona we never would have ventured on our own. Our tour was on Sunday and she did a great job adjusting our tour based upon places opened. The conclusion at Sagrada Familia is a final bonus to to a great day and is not to be missed.

What an excellent tour! Park Guell was super entertaining and special and our guide Antonio (I think that was his name) answered our questions with such ease and knowledge. Beautiful views of Barcelona! And La Sagrada Familia was so incredible and immense, inside and out. It should not be missed. The tour guides were all so kind and friendly!!

Barcelona Full Day Tour & Skip-the-line: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell & Casa Milà
This was a great tour! Our guide, Miguel, was funny and informative and kept us updated all day with facts about all the stops! Barcelona is a great city and we enjoyed the whole day with Miguel. We also felt very "safe" relative to Covid awareness and precautions. If you want a great European vacation, try Barcelona.

Barcelona Tour with Official Guide: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell & La Pedrera
Our day tour of Barcelona was an excellent introduction to the city. It covered all the highlights of this diverse city and it’s culture. Our guide Miguel made the day delightful pointing out unique points of interest and making recommendations for our days ahead. We found Barcelona a friendly city and very safe considering the Covid pandemic. Spain takes safety very seriously.

The Sagrada Familia is centrally located near the Sagrada Familia metro stop on lines 2 and 5. It’s also easy to reach on foot from just about anywhere in the old city. The main entrance sits along Carrer Marina in front of the basilica’s nativity facade.

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.
