Gaudi’s magnificent La Sagrada Familia is the undisputed symbol of Barcelona. Enhance your experience of this architectural icon during a 2.5-hour tour of the cathedral, with the option to upgrade and access the towers. Alongside your guide, you’’ appreciate the finer details of the UNESCO-listed landmark’s interior and learn about the inspiration and construction of La Sagrada Familia. Upgrade for the chance to ascend to the top of one of the towers, a unique experience offering panoramic views of Barcelona’s cityscape and coast. Small-group tour limited to 15 people.
Your tour begins at 3:30pm, when you’ll greet your guide and small group outside of the Botiga Shop on Mallorca Street. During the short stroll towards La Sagrada Familia, your guide explains the history of La Sagrada Familia, whose initial blueprints were not designed by Antoni Gaudi, and the architectural inspiration behind the icon.
On arrival at the UNESCO-listed landmark’s entrance, appreciate the finer details of the façade, abundant with religious symbolism and carvings, before you bypass lines often in excess of two hours with your pre-booked entrance tickets. Prepare to be amazed by the cathedral’s equally impressive interior: ethereal light streams through stained glass windows, dramatic columns shoot heavenward, and a magnificent altar provides a theatrical focal point.
If you’ve upgraded to include a visit to the towers, you’ll take a high-speed elevator and serpentine staircase to the top. From your vertiginous vantage point, absorb panoramic views of Barcelona’s cityscape before returning to the cathedral’s exit, where your tour concludes.
The tour of Sagrada Familia was absolutely amazing. The setting, the sunlight, the structure and history of this magnificent space is breathtaking! Our tour guide was wonderful and provided us with informative information and history and local stories as well. We had purchased tickets to the Towers too but, unfortunately the day of our tour was too windy for the Towers to be explored. This was indeed a disappointment but Viatour provided a very timely refund of for the addition of this to our previously purchased ticket which was much appreciated. Definitely pre-purchase tickets as it will save time in a long line. Sagrada Familia is a must see when in Barcelona - you won't be disappointed one bit!!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend that everyone do the tower!
The tour was excellent with a knowledgeable and efficient young woman who knew her way around this massiv edifice. Visitors should be forewarned that even in the winter, the numbers of visitors are overwhelming and security very tight. This can cause delays that eat into your tour time. That said, our guide was excellent and got us into the basilica with a minimum of fuss.
We were thoroughly impressed with out tour of Sagrada Familia and our guide. She was well informed on the significance of the Biblical references represented by the different aspects of the sculptures and history of the different people involved in the work and ongoing plans for completion. There was good information given on the different parts of the church and we were given sufficient time on our own to wander and explore. It was a highlight of our holiday and I definitely would recommend anyone going to see this place to take a tour because there is so much detail that was given by our guide that made everything much more meaningful
Stunning and spectacular
Great place to visit! This Cathedral is amazing! The tour guide was wonderful, loved going to the tower but make sure you are able to go down on foot coz it's about 300 narrow steps.

Excellent tour to appreciate the beauty and background on this beautiful edifice. Would highly recommend the tour, especially in the afternoon where the setting sun makes the interior of the cathedral seem alive with color.
This is a must do tour if you're in Barcelona!!!
