Good activity. You get the audio guides at the bottom floor, after the wardrobe. Then you go to the sixth floor, either by elevator or by stairs. Along the way you are guided by staff. You visit the 6th floor, the 7th floor (the attic) and then the rooftop. You are guided by the audio guide (with steps) and there are also human staff who can help you. The audio itself is rich in information about La Pedrera and Gaudi’s work.

Sagrada Familia was awesome, one of the most unique basilica we’ve ever seen, brightly lit by natural sunlight, unlike many cathedrals that tend to be quite dark. Rob is a fantastic guide. Tour was a bit of a rush but at least we got to see a lot.
