    Impressive construction work 2015-2017. It's a unique experience to visit and see the church get built throughout the years! I suggest booking the tower tour two hours after entrance time.

    One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Fascinating how Gaudi incorporated nature into his designs. Even if you see nothing else in Barcelona you must see this. Book ahead!!

    Amazing and unique. All European churches are not the same, this is the exception. Buy tickets online or book a skip-the-line tour. You need a guide or audio tour to truly understand the symbolism.

    It is a stunning piece of architecture. 2 hours is a good amount of time to anticipate if you want to enjoy it at a good pace. Get your tickets online the day before & add the tower as well. Worth it!

    #1 thing to check out in Barcelona. Try to time your visit with the late afternoon sun so you can see the stained glass widows in all their glory.

    Even if you don't fancy visiting churches, this architectural masterpiece is a must visit. Go inside to discover the truly spectacular reflection of light through the colourful stained glass windows.

    Book an audio tour ahead of time and you won't have to wait in line...and you can move at your own pace. Worth it to go up in one of the towers - recommend the Nativity side.

    Visits to Sagrada Familia are timed based on your ticket. Make sure you have tickets b4 you go there. Buy it online or from one of the official tourists booths. Children under 12 free with an adult.

    Maybe the most spectacular monument ever visited so far. No wonder why Gaudì is called the God’s architect. Make sure you book your visit online a few days ahead cause it sells out fast every day.

    Where to start? Such a big YES! Buy tickets online, including a tower visit and the audio guide. It's mind blowing visually but also the story behind it. Super professionally organised place.

    Buy a ticket to go inside of Sagrada Familia. The view from the inside is amazing, and you can also check out how the place is gonna look like after they finish it. (right now its 60% done).

    An astounding and arresting masterpiece of architecture. Book online before. Queues are shorter around the back. You'll leave your bags in lockers if going up the towers. Good for people-watching.
  • Açalya I.
    Must see! Unbelievable! Amazing! Outside is different, inside is completely different. Book it online in advance from it's own site. Buy just 15 Eur ticket for general visit, will be enough.

    Fantastic! A must-see in Barcelona. Definitely buy tickets (15€) online bc there is a long queue for tickets and most probably the first available time slot will be few hours later anyway

    This is the most fabulous church I have ever been to, the lights are simply amazing! Definitely go up to one of the towers, too, and don't take the elevator back down. Buying tickets online is a must!

    I was sceptic, but the inside of Sagrada Familia is 100 times more spectacular --- the streamlined architecture, colored sunlight and vastness. Give extra €5 and visit the towers.

    Do book the audio tour and save yourself 1.5 hours to go through the tour thoroughly. It is one of the most beautiful architecture marvel you will witness!

    Despite the tourista hype, it's still a must see. I was honestly floored, awed, goosebumped, stirred, inspired, amazed... Just wow. Worth every Eurocent. Spend heaps of time. Go up a tower. Love it...

    Buy a ticket at least a day before, don't skip the audio tour, and make sure to tour one of the towers for the city view. Go after 3 to catch the sunlight pouring in through the stained glass.

    Awesome architecture! Good view from towers. Entry ticket is too costly. 15 euros just for the entrance is exorbitantly high! Gaudi art though is worth seeing!

    Amazing high ceiling church that's one of Gaudi's Best. Book a time slot online to avoid the crazy lines and just waltz right in. Your chakras are fully open and you feel your whole self free here.

    Book in advance online and definitely worth the couple extra euro for views from either tower. It's marvelous once you get to the top and just as stunning as you descend down the narrow stairs.
  • Elisa L.
    Must see in Barcelona, most impressive of Gaudi's works. Great museum in the basement too. If the weather is a bit rainy they'll cancel the tower tours, so try to still book for a non rainy day.

    Great views from the towers, the winding staircase down may not be great for those afraid of heights. Beautiful and interesting architecture. The free museum in the basement is well worth a look.

    Make sure you book a guided tour beforehand online. Book online allows you skip the line and the guided tour gives you a lot of untold history and humor.

    The church is concentrated, and music plays at regular intervals to remind you to pray the Our Father. There is so much to see both inside and outside the cathedral. Antoine Gaudi left us a true gift.

    Coming during tourist season? But a ticket online in advance and try real hard to get a spot on the elevators. The view is breathtaking. First timers, take a guided tour for more in-depth Gaudi.

    A must see in Barcelona. By using the audio-guide, you get all the information and history you would otherwise miss. The architectural beauty and game of natural light inside is beyond words.

    The impressive and astonishing church that is still in construction leave you breathless. One of the most popular places to visit is always crowded. Tip: buy your tickets at least 2 days before you go

    Just beautiful. I have never seen even something similar before in my life. For towres I would pick the passion towers next time for the view of the city center. Do buy tickets online in advance.

    By far the coolest church in all of Europe! Definitely not typical both in the way that it looks and the fact that they're actually working on it. Take a guided tour at the very least for the outside

    if you don't want to wait for ages in the entrance, buy your ticket on and get them printed in a Caixa Bank.Then you just go there and visit. A must visit of Gaudi in Barça.
  • Bijoy G.
    Sagrada needs no further introduction. However, the dialogue between it and Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is amazing. Walk the diagonal between Sagrada to Sant Pau and see for youself.

    all tickets are dated and grant access only at a specific time. popular times in the day are often sold out. so book your ticket a few days in advance to get access at your preferred time..

    Purchase tickets online to skip the queue. Audio guide is good but I'd only recommend the tower visit if you have strong legs and knees because you go up in the elevator and descend by stairs.

    Possibly one of the best three churches in the World...if you get impressed by the marvellous facade, get ready to get completely shock when you walk into to see the astonishing interior

    Must visit in Barcelona. Don't even think of not going inside the church. You miss half of the beauty. The visit to the crypt is for free!

    Even if you don't have too much time, if you are visiting Barcelona, you should not miss this place. Regardless of your religion, you feel amazed by it and peaceful even with all that crowd.

    Didn't bother to pay to get in, but it's a gorgeous landmark. Just don't forget to walk all the way around to check out the details around the rest of the building too!

    If you buy a lift ticket, you pick between going up to the Passion or Nativity facades. Choose the Nativity - its the one Gaudi oversaw personally before his death, and has a path between two towers.
