Visit La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona on a 1.5-hour skip-the-line tour! With a knowledgeable local guide, head straight past the cathedral’s long entrance lines to learn all about the UNESCO-listed cathedral and its charismatic creator: Antoni Gaudi. After exploring the monument, visit the onsite La Sagrada Familia Museum to see an array of cathedral artifacts. If you have more time free, and want to admire bird’s-eye views over Barcelona, upgrade to include a skip-the-line entrance ticket to one of the cathedral’s magnificent towers.

Highlights

  • Skip the line
  • All entrance fees included
Select a start time to suit your schedule, and then meet your guide in central Barcelona. Walk straight past the long entrance lines, which are often in excess of two hours long, to Gaudi’s Gothic masterpiece: La Sagrada Familia. After skipping the line, set off to explore Barcelona’s attention-grabbing church on a comprehensive walking tour.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Sagrada Familia is consecrated and was proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. Learn all about its fascinating history from your guide, and hear how Gaudi designed the church’s interior as a Latin cross complete with five aisles. Gaze in admiration at the opulent ornamentation and walk underneath vaults that measure some 230-feet (70-meters) high.

Before leaving the church, visit La Sagrada Familia Museum to see drawings, plaster models and pictures about the development of the cathedral since the late 1880s. La Sagrada Familia remains famously unfinished, and the museum also documents information about the construction that is currently underway. The anticipated completion date of the building is 2026, the centennial of Gaudi’s death.

Your tour finishes inside the museum, but you can stay inside for longer, if you wish, to browse the exhibits at your own pace.

Tour and Tower Entry:
Upgrade to include a skip-the-line ticket to one of La Sagrada Familia’s incredible towers after your tour finishes. As with entry to the cathedral itself, entrance lines to access the towers are often long. Skip past the crowds and travel up an elevator and up some stairs through one of the cathedral’s towers. The climb is worth it as the views from the top are magnificent, and — on a clear day — many of Barcelona’s top sights can be seen.

Before the tour we had walked round the outside of the Basilica but we learned so much more with our guide. Inside was an amzing treat. It was so much more enjoyable to be given explanations about the history, architecture, sculptures and windows, than just to look in an uninformed way. We were encouraged to ask questions and we learned of many additions to the Basilica during the last couple of days, including the doors, the west window and some rework on the sculptures. We appreciated the work in progress and the wonderful results so far. It was an amazing experience which far exceeeded our expectations.

I traveled to Barcelona with friends who had tried to tour La Sagrada Familia in the past, but gave up both times because of the huge queues. My family use Viatour a lot, so I booked the "skip the queue, English tour" and was not disappointed. The office was easy to find, the guide was excellent and far from boring. Going with a guide provided us with up to date information and the opportunity to ask questions, something that the regular tour with recording cannot. As part of our ticket, we took the elevator ascent of one of the towers and I would highly recommend this as an add on, and suggest that you take the stairs down, this option providing you with amazing views and random surprises from the many windows and odd Juliet balconies that you encounter on the way. Viatour offered us a simple and excellent way to see this magnificent monument, we were not disappointed.
