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.
