Covid-19 Update

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, you will hear all about the Nativity Façade.

This was the first completed section of the Basilica and the one that Gaudí personally worked on the most in his lifetime. Try to decode the many symbols that Gaudí left for the viewer to decipher. 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. 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, such as his upside-down model of the Basilica.

The leadership was absolutely top notch. the Sagrada Familia is one of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen. Our guide had an extremely pleasant manner, was crazy somatic and shone with enormous knowledge. He certainly owes that to his obvious love for the Sagrada Familia. I would book that again anytime. Absolutely great

We got so much out of this tour - our guide was so knowledgeable on the history of Segrada Familia and we couldn’t imagine exploring this church without a tour guide. It’s truly a beautiful sight but there is so much meaning behind the works of gaudi - it was very impressive and we are blown away!

We went on this tour in July 2021 and really enjoyed it. We were through security in about 5-10 minutes so I think the skipping the line portion was accurate. Our guide was engaging and even our kids (7 and 10) were engaged throughout the 90 minutes. We felt this was a great way to see the Sagrada Familia and learn interesting facts while we were there!
