Full description
Enjoy an entertaining 75-minute German-speaking tour of the Sagrada Familia's façades and get the necessary background knowledge to better understand Gaudí's unique visual language. Sharpen your eye and take in details that you would not see without the explanations of a trained guide. 

First, meet your guide and listen to a short introduction. Learn exciting facts about Gaudí's biography and the historical background of the church building. Then, approach Gaudí's sacred masterpiece from the outside. With every detail that your German-speaking guide explains to you, realize that Gaudí was not only a fantastic designer but also a gifted structural engineer.

As you admire the building, decipher the impressive visual language of the Nativity Facade and learn about which traumatic 19th-century events Gaudí incorporated. Find out what happened after Gaudí's accidental death and the fate that befell the Sagrada Familia during the Civil War. 

Then, stroll around the apse to the Passion Façade which recalls the bony face of one scarred by death. In front of the slanted columns, listen as you guide explains the figures which represent the Passion of Christ. Walk further around the church, discover other interesting details and interpret them with the help of your guide. 

This tour is perfect for people who want to see the basilica from the outside, understand the symbolism of its unique façades and immerse themselves in Gaudí's world of thought. The tour is also suitable for those who want to discover the fantastic interior of the church afterward.
