Barcelona: Sagrada Familia Fast-Track Access Ticket
- Skip the line
- Valid: 1 day
- Optional audio guide
Antoni Gaudí's most ambitious project is still unfinished almost a century after his death. Only 2 of the stunning Sagrada Família's trinity of towers are complete and open to the public ─ the Nativity façade and Passion façade. Which is most worth the visit?
Gaudí fans will find his influence most striking in the vibrant Nativity tower. The Passion tower is less ornate, possessing a more earnest Gothic charm.
As the names suggest, each tower is religiously symbolic. The joyous Nativity faces the sunrise away from the Passion's starving, skeletal form.
The Passion tower is the taller of the two. Unfortunately the Nativity tower opens too late to catch the sunrise, but its view is more diverse, if less spectacular.
Both towers have elevators to the top, if you don't have the legs for stairs, but be warned - only the Passion tower has an elevator back down again!
The Nativity tower is generally less busy as no groups are allowed up. However, if you really don't like crowds, stay outside and see the building illuminated at night instead!
The simplest way to get to the Sagrada Família is by metro. Hop off at the conveniently named Sagrada Família metro stop!
The Sagrada Família is always crowded, but the queues will be at their shortest in the early morning or late afternoon, when the sunlight's at its most magical anyway!
If you're not buying tickets in advance, then prepare to queue for hours! They're easily available online and prices differ depending on which parts you want to access and whether or not you want to include an audio guide or tour. Tickets have a 1-hour admission window, but once inside you can stay until closing time.
You could easily while away 3 or 4 hours at the Sagrada Família, although you can do it in half that if you have a busy itinerary. Just make sure you book tickets in advance!
