When your cruise ship docks at the port of Barcelona, take advantage of the chance to see one of Spain's most famous structures on a morning shore excursion to the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Meet your local bilingual guide at the cruise ship terminal, and travel together directly to the eye-popping Gothic cathedral in the city center.
Learn about the fascinating and controversial history the cathedral, which is the most famous work of celebrated Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. After admiring the unique façade and spires from the outside, enjoy early access to the interior before the peak crowds of the day arrive. As you walk through the cavernous chapel and intricate shrines, listen as your guide points out symbolic elements representing the Holy Family, scriptures and other tenets of Christian ideology built into the Sagrada Familia’s design.
After the cathedral tour, relax and soak up a view of the passing city sights on the return trip to the port, where your 2.5-hour shore excursion concludes in the late morning.
