Full description

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.

Our guide was really good, and spoke in a language and with words that everyone could understand. It was really cool to have a guided tour where you got to know a lot about his building style and the idea behind it all. Really good trip. However, there was an annoying family in our team, who start by missing one, so we stand and wait and waste our time. Then their children were also constantly on, up and standing at the front and touching things, so the rest of us almost didn't see the things in his museum, as they shadowed it, and you then moved on afterwards and didn't get to see it . Of course, you cannot know when you order a ticket who is on the team. But too bad they ruined the experience for us

Really enjoyed this tour with our guide Victor. His knowledge of Sagrada and Gaudi is so extensive. He did a great job of managing our group and navigating around the crowds inside and outside. We're really glad we opted for this guided tour as opposed to exploring Sagada Familia on our own. We definitely recommend this tour.

Very good formula to know and understand the history of this monument. The guide perfectly gave us all the important details during this visit. The schedule is perfectly respected even a little advanced because all the participants were present. The audio system provided is perfect and allows you to hear all the explanations.
