Avoid the lines at Barcelona’s most iconic monument on a skip-the-line tour to La Sagrada Familia. Marvel at Gaudi’s most miraculous creation, still unfinished more than a century after construction began. Admire its façades and interior.
What to Expect
Enjoy a 2.5-hour guided tour of Barcelona’s magnificent La Sagrada Familia before the crowds arrive, and admire the city’s most iconic landmark in the soft light of the morning.
Striking for its architectural features and its art, La Sagrada Familia is legendary, and was the all-consuming obsession of Antoni Gaudi, the master of Modernism. Work on the cathedral began in 1882 and remains unfinished.
On the cathedral’s exterior your guide will point out the contrasting Nativity and Passion façades. You’ll hear about the symbolism and representations of the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology, constructed in stone.
Marvel at its Christian iconography as you learn the history of the cathedral. See the angled pillars sprouting like a web of tree branches and supporting the roof.
Below ground is the Museu Gaudi, where documentation about Gaudi’s life and work can be found. There is also a crypt where masses are held, and a viewing platform above the burial site of the architect.
