Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Make your visit to the Sagrada Familia unforgettable with a 1.5-hour guided tour of Gaudí’s masterpiece. See the Basilica’s dream-like façade and interior in a small-group or private tour setting accompanied by an expert guide.

During the tour you will learn about the ongoing construction, the current predicted completion date, and the generations of craftspeople, architects and artists learned how to bring Gaudi’s vision to life. Your guide will meet you outside, starting the tour with a little introduction before heading to the Basilica’s entrance. After you’ve headed through security, hear all about the Nativity Façade, the first completed section of the Basilica. Next, you will step into the interior of the Sagrada Familia. Marvel at the world created by the intense colored light from the stained glass windows and the branch-like columns extending over the ceiling.

Gaudí intended for the interior to look and feel like a walk through the woods, with the light exuding a sense of sifting through forest leaves.  As you exit the Basilica you will hear about the Passion Façade, representing the story of Jesus’ crucifixion. Experience the drama of the Passion through the tower’s stark and angular sculptures. This façade, like most of the Sagrada Familia, was built after Gaudí’s death.  Head to Sagrada Familia Schools next, designed for the children of the workers building the Sagrada Familia. Hear how it was reconstructed more than once and even moved locations to make way for the Basilica.  Your last stop will be the Sagrada Familia Museum, where your guide will share original sketches and plans with you that demonstrate the complexity of Gaudi's architecture and vision. Find artifacts here from Gaudi’s life and the Basilica's own history, like his upside-down model of the Basilica.

Met Juan Miguel at meeting point - He was very clear and quickly got us through security. He guided us around the church and was absolutely brilliant, explaining about the history of the building and details about the design and architecture. Engaging with everyone and answering any questions as we went. We all agreed that it was an exceptional tour and well worth the money.

Victor our tour guide was fantastic! Really knowledgeable and friendly and kept us all interested from start to finish. Really easy to find him before the tour and answered all questions. The tour was brilliantly done and always easy to hear him speak clearly throughout. Thoroughly recommend using a guide as there was lots of information that we would never have known about without one. 5 stars!!

Our guide Juan Miguel was very knowledgeable and very passionate about all of the details of the church. He provided a lot of details as to the history but also paused and asked us leading questions to keep us engaged. The audio technology he used was great because it allowed us to hear him even in the large crowds. The church itself was Amazing but so was our guide. Highly recommend!
