The tour of the Sagrada Familia was the highlight of our 10 day, 3-city visit to Spain. Our guide was very knowledgeable in every aspect of the church’s history. She had extensive knowledge Gaudi’s. design work and the ongoing construction towards its completion to include the current efforts of artists, sculptors, architects and engineers. It was Amazing!!

We were asked to be at the meeting point by 13:45 for a 14:00 tour. The guide arrived after us and proceeded to do admin. This meant that we stood in the sun for 45 minutes before entering the Sagrada Familia. However, from there on the guide was excellent, and interesting. And of course, the attraction was breathtakingly beautiful.

At first we waited and I thought the group was too big (20?), but we got head sets so that we could hear our awesome guide, Jordi. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He passed along so much information that helped me understand the history and emblemism! As a Barcelonian, he was able to share his own viewpoint on how special this ongoing project is!
