One of the most beautiful churches I have been to. When I say beautiful, I mean the outside and the inside. The staff also was really nice. When we went there the passion tower lift was not working so they gave us a refund. The audio guide tells you everything about the place. The stained glasses and everything is so lovely. There are good eating places too around the Sagrada Familia. If you are in Barcelona you must visit this place.
The place is amazing! I would NOT recommend the tower tour though. Aside from the view of the city, which are better in other sites around the city, you don't see much. I toured the nativity tower. And sure, I saw the doves up-close but that was about it because the rest is still under construction and covered in tarp (see pictures posted). The audio guide was well done and helpful in understanding everything. But much of the content is also repeated in the movie inside (that comes with the General admission). Getting the audio guide will give you a richer and more thorough experience.
I can’t believe I haven’t left a review until now! I’ve been 5 times in the last two years and it gets more breathtaking every time. Short answer - not to be missed. Long answer, well where to start! Simply stunning, a masterpiece of construction and artistic vision. The glass work alone is something to visit it for, so beautiful whatever time of day you go. The exhibition underneath is also definitely worth going through to see the inner workings of how everything was designed. A few words to the wise; book a head. The queues are long otherwise and this way you get a 15min window to queue jump. Make sure your bag isn’t full of junk, it will be checked before you go in. Just to save your embarrassment more than anything. And keep an eye on your valuables. This is a high traffic tourist area and can get very crowded inside and out side of the cathedral so be careful with your belongings!
One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to! It is just incredible! I've always heard people talk wonders about La Sagrada Familia and seen photos but the place is way better than in photos! It is a definitely must see when you are in Barcelona. Just perfect. Everything is flawless. I was amazed. I still am.
From the outside, this place is really remarkable but the inside is where it really shines. I have never seen such a beautiful cathedral. It is possibly the most beautiful building I’ve ever entered, and at the time and season we visited there were not an overwhelming amount of other tourists. The price point was worth it, the entry process was pleasant and the experience isn’t to be missed. Don’t just admire from the outside, go in.
