What You Can Expect

Priority Access: Barcelona Sagrada Familia Tour with Optional Tower Entry

Make the most of your visit to Barcelona and admire the views of the city from Sagrada Familia's towers

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 1.5-hour 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.

Awesome experience!

What a moving experience! Our guide was terrific, making us aware of the countless details that make up the architecture. She clearly explained the significance and symbolism of features large and small. I would have totally missed these had I been touring on my own. This is a must see!

I think our guide was nearly as excited as we were to be showing us Sagrada Familia for at least her second time that day. The basilica is amazing and words and pictures cannot adequately convey the experience.
Unfortunately we were unable to see the tower due to strikes around the city, but Julia Tours and Viator processed our partial refund with no problems.

Really easy process, we met our guide who was absolutely brilliant and so passionate about the subject she really made the tour an exceptional experience.

This tour was wonderful! The Sagrada Familia is a must-see site and our guide Sarah? provided us with some much detail about the intricate design and Gaudi's vision. The site is the most visited in Spain, so there were crowds even in the off season but our guide did a great job of separating us from other groups and making sure we didn't miss anything. The tower option was great but be prepared for a long walk back down in a narrow stairway. You get great photos from the top though!

I wish I could rate this but I read the tickets wrong and we missed our time to go. We will be there in May 8 this year and we plan on using Viator for this same tour and we will not miss it this time!
