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.

Great tour of Barcelona

Barcelona in One Day: Sagrada Familia, Park Guell & Old Town with Hotel Pick-up
Great day yesterday. Of course, La Sagrada Familia was the most fantastic and memorable thing, but the whole day was great. Marco was very knowledgeable and promoted our group cohesion and fun (and kept us on schedule.) He was also attentive to individual needs while never letting them interfere with the tour as a whole.

Sagrada Familia and Montserrat Small Group Tour with Hotel pick-up
Marco C., our guide, was excellent. made our 10 hr tour easy, fun and informative. Montserrat is unforgettable; Barcelona Old town was also great; and he got us tickets for and helped us with setting up the self guided tour app on our phone for the Sagrada Familia visit. Plus the SUV car he used to pock us up from the hotel to get to the sites and back to oir hotel was so comfortable. Definitely great value for your money. looking forward to get back in Barcelona for more.

Private tour Sagrada Familia skip- the- line- tickets & Tapas and drinks
This was a great tour and a wonderful way to see Barcelona through local experiences rather than just tourist stops. Jenny, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and showed us places in Barcelona we never would have ventured on our own. Our tour was on Sunday and she did a great job adjusting our tour based upon places opened. The conclusion at Sagrada Familia is a final bonus to to a great day and is not to be missed.

Barcelona Tour with Official Guide: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell & La Pedrera
Our day tour of Barcelona was an excellent introduction to the city. It covered all the highlights of this diverse city and it’s culture. Our guide Miguel made the day delightful pointing out unique points of interest and making recommendations for our days ahead. We found Barcelona a friendly city and very safe considering the Covid pandemic. Spain takes safety very seriously.

Barcelona Full Day Tour & Skip-the-line: Sagrada Familia, Park Güell & Casa Milà
Outstanding walking tour with some very well coordinated cab rides to whisk us to the further off sites! Our guide Montse was great! Very good English and very knowledgeable. This tour is a must pick to see the key sites of Barcelona with a knowledgeable and professional guide with well-coordinated timing! Lunch was also included with wine/beer and Montse helped with the food selection. She also adhered very well with COVID prevention measures!

Barcelona in One Day: Sagrada Familia, Park Guell & Old Town with Hotel Pick-up
It's very fast paced so you can see a lot in one day. Most importantly, I had missed my pickup because of technical difficulty with my phone. When I got it fixed, I was able to meet up with the tour guide and finish 80% of the tour. I only missed the beach which I go to regularly on my month long holiday. And the tour guide was funny and engaging.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • This site is a must-see for first-time visitors.

  • Ticket lines can get long, so it’s a good idea to book in advance and consider skip-the-line admission.

  • Eating, drinking, and smoking are prohibited on the basilica grounds.

  • While photography is permitted, the use of a tripod is not without prior permission.

  • Much of the basilica and museum are wheelchair accessible, but the towers are not.

How to Get There

The Sagrada Familia is centrally located near the Sagrada Familia metro stop on lines 2 and 5. It’s also easy to reach on foot from just about anywhere in the old city. The main entrance sits along Carrer Marina in front of the basilica’s nativity facade.

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.
