The Basics

While the Sagrada Familia looms large over Barcelona—it’s visible from many parts of the city—the cathedral should be seen up close and from within to truly be appreciated. Visitors can tour the interior on their own, on a guided tour, or with an audio guide. It’s also possible to take an elevator up one of the towers for sweeping views over the city.

Just about every sightseeing tour in Barcelona includes a stop here, as do hop-on hop-off bus tours, which also stop at Park Güell, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, and Plaça de Catalunya. It’s possible to combine a visit to the Sagrada Familia with a half-day trip to the nearby mountain abbey of Montserrat or the medieval city of Girona.

Skip the Line: Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed this half-day tour! Our guide was kind and full of knowledge. She accommodated the pace of the entire group. The bus between the two sites was comfortable and clean. I highly recommend this tour if you actually want to know the history of Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell and not just pictures. We got those too! Bring sunglasses/hat, water, and good walking shoes!

Barcelona and Sagrada Familia Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up
Vicente our tour guide was absolutely amazing! He gave us valuable safety advice and recommended great places to eat. We had a wonderful drive around the city after visiting the Sagrada Familia. He was very kind to take photos of us as well. I recommended him to other people I knew who were also visiting Barcelona. Thank you for a fun and great experience! I’m still saying “Vale” 😂

Barcelona Tour with Licensed Guide: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and La Pedrera
Amazing! Man, when they said "professional" tour guide, they weren't kidding. Our guide was an expert on local customs, history, architecture, I felt like there wasn't a question she didn't know the answer to. It was a lot of walking, so wear comfy shoes. It seemed a little pricey, but when you consider the admission fees to Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, and Park Guell, it's not bad, and 100% worth it.

Park Guell and Sagrada Familia Tour in Barcelona
The guides knowledge of Park Guell and Sagrada Familia certainly made the visit memorable. The visit would not have meant much without the background provided by the guides. Both sites certainly worth visiting.

Skip the Line: Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia Guided Tour
The tour of Sagrada Familia was very nice. The directions/information on where to meet for the first part of the tour were not clear enough for our taxi driver and we missed that part. The company was very helpful in coordinating us meeting with the tour for the second part.

Sagrada Familia Private Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket
Our tour guide Ariel was very knowledgeable and definitely added to the experience. The only reason I subtracted a star was that I booked this tour 2 months ago and 90 minutes before the start I was contacted and told the time moved up 30 minutes! We had a morning tour booked and had planned on walking to Sagrada Familia, but instead had to take a taxi to make this earlier time. I would have loved more than an hour and a half notice for something that was booked so long ago!

When to Get There

The Sagrada Familia is open throughout the year but can be extremely busy in summer, so a skip-the-line ticket is recommended. The facade looks markedly different when illuminated at night than it does during the day, so plan for at least a short visit during both periods. Note that the basilica holds an international mass each Sunday morning in several languages; entrance is free, but space is limited.

Visiting the Sagrada Familia Museum

The basement beneath the passion façade houses a museum covering the temple's construction through drawings, photographs, and plaster models. Entry to the museum is included in basilica admission, and visitors can see the working modeling studio where Gaudi’s restored maquettes are reproduced to aid in the structure’s ongoing construction.
