Sagrada Familia attractions guide: Things to Do in Barcelona, Spain

Sagrada Familia

If you have time for only one sightseeing outing, this should be it. La Sagrada Família inspires awe by its sheer verticality, and in the manner of the medieval cathedrals it emulates, it’s still under construction. Work began in 1882 and is hoped (perhaps optimistically) to be completed in 2026, a century after the architect's death. Unfinished it may be, but it attracts around 2.8 million visitors a year and is the most visited monument in Spain.

Which Tower Is Best to Visit at the Sagrada Família?

Antoni Gaudí’s most aspiring venture is as yet incomplete just about a century after his passing. Just 2 of the dazzling Sagrada Família’s trinity of pinnacles are finished and open to the general population ─ the Nativity façade and Passion façade. Which is most worth the visit?

Gaudí fans will discover his impact generally striking in the energetic Nativity tower. The Passion tower is less resplendent, having a more sincere Gothic appeal.

As the names propose, each pinnacle is strictly representative. The upbeat Nativity faces the dawn away from the Passion’s destitute, skeletal structure.

The Passion tower is the taller of the two. Lamentably, the Nativity tower opens past the point where it is possible to get the dawn, yet its view is more varied, if less breathtaking.

The two pinnacles have lifts to the top in the event that you don’t have the legs for steps, however, be cautioned – just the Passion tower has a lift down once more!

What people are saying about Sagrada Familia

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Jorge was an excellent and informative guide!!
Jorge’s introduction in Spanish and English was so all around done. I can not envision visiting either the Parq Guell or the Sagrada Familia without his nitty gritty portrayal of Gauli’s origination for either place. Much obliged to you, Jorge…it was a magnificent method to go through an evening in the delightful city of Barcelona.

Park Güell and Sagrada Familia Tour With Transportation reviewed by Marleen

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Exceptional tour! Victor was amazing and so knowledgeable!!
Our visit was so astounding. The Sagrada Familia has so much history thus a significant number of the parts have emblematic implications. Victor was so magnificent with sharing his insight and giving us the more noteworthy implications of the entirety of the pieces of the asylum. Without the visit, we would not have acknowledged endless subtleties that are inside such a glorious structure. Worth each penny!!

Sagrada Familia: Priority Access Guided Tour with Ticket reviewed by Eleanor

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ In-depth and unmissable if you are remotely interested in Gaudi.
Our guide Alma was excessively learned and all-around brilliant. The extraordinary broad visit that lets you get more setting around Gaudi’s show-stoppers – including Sagrada Família tower climb. Truly a very much arranged and executed visit from start to finish. Would suggest.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ I am so happy when I am on a Segway! It brings out my lost little boy.
In the event that you are even the slightest bit lithe, you merit it to yourself to go for a voyage on a Segway and where better than in Barcelona. We investigated a few regions of the city including the Gothic quarter, Barcelonetta (the seashore), and had a side of the road perspective on Gaudi’s work of art. Since you are ‘out and about’ I recommend this from the get-go in your visit as it explained the lay of the land.
