Planning Your Visit
How to Get There?
The simplest way to get to the Sagrada Família is by metro. Hop off at the conveniently named Sagrada Família metro stop!
When to Visit?
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.
How Much 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!

What people are saying about Sagrada Familia
I would recommand it to everyone because it is very well organized. No queues, no wasting time, excelent and helpful guide, open to all the questions, funny, well prepared... There is a shuttle mini bus that will take you from one to the other location so you don't have to walk the distance.
Overall excellent experience!! Tour leader was very knowledgeable, interesting, and very safety conscious. The bikes were in great shape and easy to use. Tour covered many interesting tourist attractions,
We really enjoyed the flexibility of the audio guide. This way we learned but got to explore at our own pace.
Gaby was wonderful!! I enjoyed the tour and the photoshoot, and I love the result!!
It was great ! We went there on Ascension weekend. And almost no waiting. cdlt
