Sagrada Família, the famous unfinished Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona is the biggest attraction in the city and is Gaudí’s greatest work. I’ve been to the basilica many times and saw people making many mistakes while visiting it, so I decided to finally put all my tips together in one post!
Sagrada is one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions (5 million people visit it each year!), which means tickets are quite pricey and there are A LOT of people visiting. Just to give you an idea, the normal ticket is 26€, and the ticket that includes tower access is 36€.
In this post, we are going to talk about ways to buy tickets with no lines and how to save some money if possible. I will also guide you through the types of tickets, and prices, add some practical info, and more!
If you are in a hurry
If you are here to just buy the skip-the-line ticket, I have some quick links for you:
- General admission – 26€ or 30€ guided
- General + towers access – 36€ or 40€ guided
- Private tour – Exclusive Sagrada Familia Tour ~€100 per person
- Discounted tickets – 24€ for under 30yo and students, 21€ for seniors (over 65yo)
- Free access – children under 11yo, disabled + 1 companion
Here are 5 ways to get in fast and recommendations on which type of ticket to choose:
1. General admission
Let me just say it right away – buy your tickets in advance and you will not need to bother with waiting in the line. You can check the prices on the official website or, if it is sold out, try on this official reseller.
Long gone are the days when you could only buy tickets at the entrance (actually now you can ONLY buy it online) and you would have to wait for hours in line. Nowadays you just need to plan your visit a couple of days in advance, choose your preferred time slot (it is every 15 mins, so you have many options), and show up there on time. That’s it!
This is the entrance (Nativity facade, Carrer de la Marina, 253). Just show the QR code from your phone to the ticket controller, no need to print the tickets. There will be a security line, but it is generally super efficient, we did not wait there at all, it took like 2 minutes altogether.
The general admission ticket includes the normal visit to the basilica and it is not constrained by time, you can stay as long as you like (until closing that is). If you are looking for a guided tour, click here to skip some text and jump directly to the section.
The audio guide is free for everyone, but you need the internet to download the app (from here). I HIGHLY recommend listening to the explanation, it will not only talk about the history but also the significance of the elements. Take your headphones with you!
Dress code: As this is a place of worship, you must wear appropriate clothes (it has to cover the shoulders, trousers and skirts must come down to at least mid-thigh, nothing see-through).
How much in advance to buy? You can generally buy the tickets 2 or so days in advance, but if you want to ensure your desired time slot is available (everyone wants to visit during the sunset!), then book 4-5 days in advance and even more in the summertime.
What to do if the tickets are sold out? Try other dates, try getting another ticket type, try third-party sellers, and go with the tour (we are going to discuss all these options below).
Cancellation policy: exchange or returns must be requested at least 48 hours in advance. If you want to cancel, you need to provide proof of the cancellation reason (medical, flight cancellation, personal issues, etc.) Exchange is subject to availability, but generally, the change can be done 15 days before and after your original ticket date. You can read the full policy here.
PRO TIP: If you are not sure which day you are going to go, but would like to book the spot, you can do it through GetYourGuide, a truster reseller. The ticket is a bit more expensive, but they have a full refund policy up to 24h in advance, no questions asked.
2. Tickets with the tower access
I visited Sagrada 3 times before and always skipped the towers because it was unavailable or too expensive. I am so happy I finally got to do it!
Is it worth it? The entrance fee is going to be 10€ extra but if it is within your budget, I personally think it is worth it for the view and just seeing the inside of the naves. If your budget is tight, you can skip it because the most beautiful part is the basilica itself anyway! 🙂
Just like with the general admission ticket, you will book a particular time slot for your visit. You can first wander around in the basilica, listen to the audio guide and then go up with the elevator to one of the towers (the time slot to take the elevator will be 45 min after your entrance time). You will enjoy the view from there and then go back down (up with the elevator, down with the stairs) and you can stay in the basilica for longer if you wish to.
NOTE: The stairs for your descent are narrow, so it might not be very good for claustrophobic people.
Which tower is better?
Sagrada Familia has two facades with towers that you can go up: the Nativity Towers and the Passion Towers (when you book your ticket you will have to choose one of them). The Nativity Towers are the oldest ones and the only ones Gaudi himself helped with the construction; the Passion Towers are the new ones, completed after his sketches. The Sagrada Familia top view is mesmerizing regardless of your choice!
NOTE: You are not allowed up with backpacks, but there are lockers for you downstairs
PRO TIP: For all ticket types, if you can, I highly recommend visiting during sunset time. You will be mesmerized by the beautiful golden light reflecting from the countless stained glass windows! And it is also nice to see the city during the golden hour, trust me!
3. Guided tour
La Sagrada Família is full of secret meanings, tiny significant details planned by Gaudí, pieces of architecture inspired by nature – all reasons why it is really worth taking a guided experience!
You can take a guided tour for both general admission and the tickets with the tower access. The official ones are very affordable (it is just 4€ extra from the original entrance price), but I noticed they are also very fast (50 min) and crowded.
The ones by a trusted partner are 1,5-2 hours so you get to learn more about the place and it is organized in smaller groups. The choice is yours, I am going to provide links and prices for both options below:
Guided tour of the basilica
- Official – 30€ (40 min, buy this one at least a week in advance! it has limited availability)
- Get Your Guide (small group, 1.5 h) – from 49€
Guided tour of the basilica with tower access
- Official – 40€ (same here, tours in English sell out fast, buy at least a week in advance)
- Get your Guide (small group, 1,5h) – from 62€
PRICE: from 30€
4. Private tour
If you are looking for more of a personal treatment where the guide would talk exclusively to you and your friends/family, you should take a private tour!
The official site does not have anything to offer, so I found some good tours for you on trusted websites I use myself. The price will depend on the number of people in your group, but generally can be somewhere between 90 and 130€ per person depending on the duration and extra perks.
This one for example is about 100€ per person for a 1,5h tour with a cava in a restaurant with a view of Sagrada at the end.
Or this one is 75€ per person (if you are 5 or more people) for a 2-hour tour.
PRICE: from 75€ per person
5. Buy with a bundle
Another great opportunity to save some time and money that no one talks about is buying the ticket as part of a pass.
I don’t blame people, it is usually hard to understand the terms and conditions and what’s included. But guess what, I’ve done the research and the calculation for you!
NOTE: The passes are usually worth it if you are definitely going to go to many attractions. If you are only planning to do one or two you will probably be better off buying your tickets separately.
Let’s briefly talk about 3 main ticket bundles that I thought might be interesting for you to consider if you are going to Sagrada Familia:
UPDATE: Currently, I honestly do not think any of the passes really offer any significant savings for Sagrada, but in the past they did, so I will leave the links below for you to check in case anything changes:
- Turbopass (it is actually worth it but only if you really use it)
- Explorer pass
- Gaudi Bundle
Practical information about Sagrada Familia
Even though the post was about buying the tickets to Sagrada, there are a couple of things more that I think to deserve your attention:
How to get there
Sagrada Familia is not located exactly in the city center, but it is very close to it, and it is super well connected:
- Metro: L2 or L5
- Bus: 19, 33, 34, D50, H10 or B24
- Taxi: I usually use Cabify and Free Now (Uber alternatives), it is an 8-10 min ride from the center
- Hop-on/hop-off bus stops there too
The opening hours vary according to the season, you can see them below or check on the official site:
- November-February: Mon-Sat 9 am to 6 pm, Sun 10:30 am to 6 pm
- March and October: Mon-Sat 9 am to 7 pm, Sun 10:30 am to 7 pm
- April-September: Mon-Sat 9 am to 8 pm, Sun 10:30 am to 8 pm
NOTE: The Basilica is actually open for visitors also during Christmas and New Year, but the hours are shortened – from 9 am to 2 pm.
How to take epic pictures with no people in Sagrada?
If you want to take awesome pictures inside the basilica, I recommend either arriving right when it is first opens (9 am) or waiting until the closing time. 5 minutes before the closing the guards will start asking people to move in the direction of the exit and there will be almost no people inside.
So, if you are fast, you can take some amazing pics with no people in the background both inside and of the facade. Above is my favorite pic, I did not edit it, promise, there were actually no people for a brief moment and we managed to snap this shot!
BONUS: There is also a super nice place to take pictures OF the basilica – there is a small park called Plaça de Gaudí and for some reason, there are not that many people there but the view with the lake is super nice! Here is a Google map link in case you get lost 🙂
How to enter Sagrada Familia for free
Yep, you’ve heard it right, you could actually enter there for free, but there is a “but”…
Your chance to get into the basilica for free is to attend one of the weekly masses that are held there. There is a 1-hour public Mass every Sunday at 9 am, in different languages.
Sagrada Família also holds Extraordinary Masses on certain days: Palm Sunday Mass (in March), the closing mass of the International Congress of Pueri Cantores (in July), and the Thanksgiving Mass (in October). You can check the up-to-date calendar on their website here.
The downside? Well, you cannot really be a tourist and walk around to take pictures – be respectful of the people that are attending, as this is a religious occasion.
NOTE: Being a worship service open to the public, the spaces are limited and the first people in line have priority. Make sure to be at the Nativity Façade entrance at 8:30 am.
PRO TIP: If you are traveling on a tight budget, I recommend taking this free walking tour – it will give you SO MUCH interesting info on the subject (outside only though) and you decide on the price yourself at the end, perfect concept!
Significance of Sagrada Familia elements
Oh, there are so many and I would really prefer you to hear the explanation from a certified guide because trust me, there are A LOT of hidden meanings and elements signifying something everywhere.
The 3 facades signify different stages of Jesus’s life:
- The Nativity (birth)
- The Passion (crucifixion)
- The Glory (in heaven)
By the way, did you see a “sudoku”-like stone at the end before the exit? It is a so-called magic square – any row, column or diagonal line always adds up to 33, the age Jesus was when he died.
Accommodation near Sagrada Familia
There are actually some pretty amazing accommodation options right close to Sagrada, or even with a direct view of it!
I have completed a list of the ones with great reviews and sorted them by price, but if you are looking to stay somewhere else in the city, check out my post on Where to stay in Barcelona, you have even more options there.
Good restaurants around Sagrada
Finding a good non-tourist-trap restaurant near Sagrada Familia is mission almost impossible, but I still found a couple of good recommendations for you:
- MIAM Brunch and Coffee – as the name suggests, this place is great for the early birds, try their avocado toast!
- Manairó – on the fancy side, a Michelin star restaurant. For those looking for an experience, not just a quick bite
- Bicos – amazing Galician food just 5 mins away from the basilica. Zamburinas are a must-try!
- K’Delicia – if you are looking for a budget-friendly restaurant, this place cooks amazing homemade-style food!
- Barriguita – another budget-friendly place, this one is great for tapas
Other amazing sites by Gaudi
This city has does not cease to amaze with architecture, so if you are interested to see other Gudi’s masterpieces, I have created a post on each of them:
- Casa Batllo
- Park Guell
- Casa Mila
- Casa Vicens
Some other amazing modernist buildings you should visit are Palau de la Musica Catalana and Sant Pau hospital.

FAQs about Sagrada Familia, Barcelona
🎫 How much is a ticket to Sagrada Familia?
The prices start from 26€ for general admission and 36€ for the tickets with tower access. Kids under 11 can enter for free.
🕠 How long to spend in Sagrada Familia?
At least 1,5 hours if you want to see everything with no rush.
♿ Is Sagrada Familia wheelchair accessible?
Yes, all areas of the Basilica are accessible for people with reduced mobility (enter through the Carrer de la Marina entrance), but the towers are not.
💡 What was Gaudi’s inspiration for Sagrada Familia?
Nature was the main inspiration for the maestro – the columns are tree-like and there are no straight lines.
🚻 Is there a toilet inside Sagrada Familia?
Yes, there is an on-site toilet, it is located close to the exit of the basilica.
💵 Can you buy tickets at the gate?
You used to be able to, but the lines were very long. You can now buy tickets from your phone in front of the entrance, but only if there will be available time slots for that time, it is not guaranteed. There is no physical sales point onsite.
✅ When will Sagrada Familia be finished?
It is one of the longest ongoing constructions in the world (it already takes over 130 years to build!!), Sagrada Familia is scheduled to be finished in 2026. Gaudi, of course, knew that he was not going to see the cathedral finished in his lifetime, but he reportedly said: “My client is not in a hurry”.
The most visited attraction in Spain, Sagrada definitely does get quite crowded and you should 100% take care of your tickets in advance!
I hope after reading this post it became a bit more clear about what kind of tickets there are, which one to buy and how to skip those lines.
We also spoke a lot about some practical info like how to get there, how long it takes to visit, some tricks on taking beautiful pictures without people in them, how to visit the basilica for free, and more.
I hope you will enjoy your visit, I’ve been there 3-4 times and I absolutely love it each time I go!
If you still have any questions left, be sure to let me know in the comment section below!
P.S.: I have similar style posts on Casa Batllo and Park Guell, so be sure to check them out too if you are going there!
Have a great time!

Thank you so much for sharing your invaluable knowledge and experience with newbies like us. I have a little confused about one thing. If I buy the tickets for the guided tour from the Sagrada familia website directly, will I be able to “skip the line”and go directly to security check?
There are many websites offering much more expensive tickets for Skip the line entry. Is there a difference in wait time between that and the ticket from the original website?
If we opt for a guided tour, will we get an actual person to guide us inside? After the tour is over, can we leave the guide and spend some extra time inside?
no prob, i know they are tons of options, thats exactly why I decided to write this post 🙂
Yes, if you buy the official tour (starts from 30EUR per adult), it is timed, so you will need to go directly to the security line.
The difference between this tour and this tour is that the one on GetYourguide is longer and it will be less people in the group (also, the official ones usually sold out a week in advance at least during the high season).
Sure, it is an actual person and you should be able to stay inside for longer, unless you took the latest tour and the basilica is closing.
Hope that helps,
have an amazing trip to Barcelona!

Great article about the Sagrada Familia. I have been multiple times and agree with you. 🙂 Just a heads up though – the Sagrada Familia is NOT “by far the most visited Spanish attraction and maybe in all of Europe”. The Alhambra in Granada often competes very closely (and often beats) the Sagrada Familia.
Haha, you’re right, maybe I’ve been a bit subjective with that statement!
I am glad that I went as it is a very unique structure. If you have a fear of heights, skip the towers. The first set of steps are not so bad but have no hand rails and the second type of steps have hand rails but if you fear heights, you can see all the way down via the open center. We visited in the afternoon. the sun coming thru the windows was a bit blinding at times. Sometimes the elevator person may let you come back down if you are claustrophobic or have health issues. Ask before you go to the top.
Definitely agree! It can get quite scary for claustrophobic people or people who are afraid of heights, thank you for pointing this out!
Thanks for the great info in your post. We are planning to visit in early Feb.. Sunset is a little after 6:00 then. What time would you recommend since the only options available are 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, and 4:45 for the tours with tower access.
Thank you! I would choose 4.30 or even 4.45, since a tour usually takes about 90 minutes, so that way you’ll also manage to catch the sunset at 6:00!
Could you please tell me if tourists are allowed to attend one of the regular masses throughout the week, or are we limited to only the 9AM Sunday one?
As far as I know, the masses only take place on Sunday, Saturday (when an international mass takes place) and on some special occasions, such as the holy days of obligation. They are all free for the public, but the church has a limited capacity. You can check their website for more informations on the customs and schedules here and here to see the exact timetable of the masses!
We are planning on attending Sunday mass 9am. Question, once mass is over are we allowed to stay inside and then take pictures . I realize that we’re required to purchase tickets should we want audio to listen to history and info.
Two questions1. In mid January, do I even need to worry about lines at Sagrada Familia?
Is GAUDI’S NEST APARTMENTS a safe and well -located place to stay?
Although January is definitely less crowded, I would still book skip-the-line tickets, just to be sure I don’t find myself waisting precious time in the line!
I haven’t personally stayed at Gaudi’s Nest Apartments, but I see it’s located in Eixample, which is, in my opinion, a great neighborhood, especially if you want to be close to all the main attractions! It also has many good reviews, so I’d say it’s a nice option to stay!
You can also check my full list of hotel recommendations for Barcelona, as well as my favourite areas to stay, here!
After the mass you will be required to leave and have a ticket if you wish to visit it again later.
Have fun on your holiday!
Which should I pick, the guided tour or the audio guide with towers? It’s my first time at Barcelona and I’m a solo female traveler. Both has its own merits and I can’t decide. Is there any best day of the week to visit? What other attractions would you recommend that I visit on the same day as Sagrada Familia?
I would definitely go for the one that has the skip-the-line option! Other than that, it’s up to you if you feel like spending more time with an experienced guide or you’d rather walk at your own pace and listen to the audio guide (which, from my experience, will not be as informative, though).
I would suggest Monday (during sunset, of course!), because many people think it’s closed on that day, so they avoid visiting it.
There are many other places to visit such as Casa Vicens (which is located in the city center) or Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site and you can also check out my article with my suggestions of 8 Cool Things to Do in Barcelona, Spain You’ve Probably Never Heard Of!
Have fun on your trip!
Can you provide some insight as to the difference between booking on “getyourguide.com” vs. Sagrada Famiglia site direct? I am having trouble understanding which is better. It appears the only way to get a full guided tour of both the basilica AND go up one tower is to book on the get your guide site as sagrada tower option is 45 minutes only but it does allow you to pick the passion side tower or the nativity facade. Please help distinguish as the link you provide says tour is 90 minutes for basilica and tower, but we cannot choose which tower?
The getyourguide tour is a skip-the-line ticket and offers you a live tour with an experienced guide, which will be more detailed than the audioguide offered by Sagrada Familia. The tower for the getyourguide one will be choosen depending on the day and the construction works.
Hope this helps!
I went last month to Sagrada Familia and your post helped a lot so thank you!
Wow! This post is a gem! very informative. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, glad you found it useful! 🙂
I sincerely appreciate all your time and efforts that you put to provide us with all these valuable experience and information. I really enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks a million.
You’re welcome, Sonia! Always happy to help!
Thank you Yulia for doing all the hard work for me as I did not realise how complex it is to get all this information. Lovely to have your ideas on all these things. We will be travelling from Australia in September to Barcelona. Best Wishes Lyn
PS which is the best site to book the tour?.
Thank you so much, Lyn! You can check my recommendations at the end of the article – I usually recommend the official website, but if you want a guided or a private guided tour, I’d recommend checking on GetYourGuide as well to see the current offers!
Have a great vacation!
Thank you again Yulia! Do you have any recommendations regarding a safe and clean beach in Barcelona?
Hi Yulia, Thank you very much for a lot of valuable information which really helped me to plan out trip to Barcelona!
Thank you so much for your comment, Grace! I’m very glad I could help! 🙂
Thank you, Yulia! I am trying to plan our trip to Barcelona and was a bit overwhelmed by the different options for Sagrada Familia. Your blog is awesome – exactly what I needed to know, and some really great things I wouldn’t have known to look for. I’ll be coming back again and reading your other articles. Glad to find MissTourist!
You are welcome, Linda! I’m glad my article was useful! 🙂
I have a few questions. If I want to go to Mass in the crypt at 9am, but don’t have a ticket until later in the morning or afternoon, can I get into the main church before my ticket time, or do I need to leave and then come back? Is it possible to leave the church and come back later in the day using the same entrance ticket? I’m planning to spend many hours there in a single day, but I’m wondering if I can leave and get food, or will I have to pay for a second ticket to get in again? Thanks in advance.
The mass can be attended for free, without a ticket, although the capacity is limited so you might want to make sure to arrive there early. After that, you must return and visit with your ticket time. If you want to get out to buy food, I’m afraid you will have to buy another ticket for re-entering Sagrada Familia.
You can find more details about the mass here.
Hi, Can walkers be brought into the basilica? What guided tour do you revommend? Thank you. Sandra
I recommend this small group guided tour or this one in case you want to visit the towers as well!
If I buy a Barcelona City Pass, I see it includes the Sagrada Familia audio tour. Can we upgrade to a guided tour? Also, if we get the city pass can we choose the day we want to use the Hop on Hop off bus? Is it an issue if we only use the airport transfer one way as we are arriving on a cruise ship? Thanks so very much for your help.
If you buy Barcelona City Pass you will get Sagrada Familia skip-the-line + audio guide and it cannot be upgraded to a guided tour. Yes, you have to choose the day when you want to use the Hop On Hop Off bus when you buy the pass, as well as the specific days and times for Sagrada Familia and Park Guell.
You can use the airport transfer if you want or not, it is not a problem if you can’t use one of the tickets, but you will have to pay for the roundtrip in anyway.
Hope this helps and have fun in Barcelona!
Very nice article!! I agree with all points, Sagrada Familia is one of my favourite places in Europe and it’s very important to book tickets in advance and have a guided tour not to miss anything!!
I visited Barcelona (and Sagrada Familia) for the first time about 15 years ago. The opera about Antoni Gaudí inspired me to go to Sagrada Familia. When I was there the cost was very modest, and there were no lines. I doubt that I’ll live long enough to go back, but the information in your post is incredible and priceless. Everyone, of all religions (or no religion), should try to see it. I consider it to be to be one of the wonders of the world. Mucho gracias.
You are welcome! Yes, things change as Barcelona is becoming more and more touristy
Hi there! Thanks a lot for this informative guide! It will definitely help me a lot to plan my visit. Being a blogger myself, I know how much work went into this piece so I directly pinned it to few boards 🙂
Quick note: prices have gone up in January – entrance is now 17€, 25€ with audio guide, 26€ guided tour and 32€ with tower visit
Thank you for the heads-up, Sarah! I have updated the article with the new prices. Much appreciated! 🙂
Thank you for pinning as well, I hope you’ll have an awesome visit!
Thanks for posting information on getting tickets if sold out, using an operator. I was frustrated because there were no tickets available but was able to get from the skip the line link you posted.
amazing you could find tickets!
I am happy it was helpful as I think it would be a miss if you would not go inside!
This is so useful! I’m looking at visiting Barcelona in November, and this place is definitely on my list of things to see.
Have fun and yes, thats a must! 🙂
Hello. My daughter is 10 and can get into sagrada familia for free but would be very sad to miss the audio guide. On the official site it says the audio guide is not for children under 11. Should I just take a spare set of headphones? You indicate a child guide is available…is that just purchased onsite?
not sure where I said about an audio guide for kids?
P.S I think you can take the one for children over 11, and your daughter will be just fine (she is almost there in any way!)
Hope this helps,
have a great time in Barcelona!
I was thinking of visiting the towers in the morning and then church afterwards. Should I pick up the audio guide upon arrival at the site and then visit the towers and then the church? Do you need the audio guide for the towers?
I used the audio guide and I think it was only talking about the Sagrada Familia itself, not about the towers.
You can pick up the audioguide when you want because it is given after you enter the security (look on your right before entering Sagrada itself)
We completely agree with Yulia’s recommendations.
We visited it last fall and coincidently did everything she mentionned.
It was one of the best site & tour of our trip.
We too highly recommend it. And using those tips.
Great post. Cheers,
Happy you could get in without the hustle and enjoy this amazing sight, cheers!
What a great post Yulia! I stumbled on it on Pinterest and saving it for when our family vacation takes us to Barcelona. Hopefully soon.
Thanks for the comment Chika,
I am sure your family will enjoy the vacation! 🙂
can you please explain the city pass?? round trip airport ride? I’m assuming that means to the hotel? Is it possible that we get picked up at the port to return to airport as we are taking a cruise. Also, it appears that we can only choose times to visit Sagrada Familia after we pay. is that the case? Thank you for your help
thank you for your question, it is indeed not clear from their website!
I addressed the company with the questions and this is what they replied:
1) The bus will take you from the airport to Barcelona City Centre. It makes 2 stops: plaza Espana first and then Plaza Catalunya. When you return to the airport, you can again go from Plaza Espana and Plaza Catalunya. The bus does not take you to your hotel.
If you want to be picked up at the port to go to the airport, you would have to take a taxi or take the aerobus again.
3) This is correct. You first order the Barcelona City Pass and make the payment. After that you will receive an email with a link, to choose your visiting hours for Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. Once you have decided and confirmed your visiting times, you will receive all the tickets by email (aerobus, hop on hop off, sagrada, etc)
Hope that helps,
have an amazing trip!
Hello! I’m going from April 26th to the 29th and from May 6th to May 9th. That’s a Thursday thru Sunday and Sunday Thru Wednesday. At what time should I go to catch the sunset this time of the year? Thanks in advance for your help!
I usually just google “Sunset Barcelona” and it shows me he exact time the sunset is going to happen in that exact day. You can check a couple of days before your trip and that will be more or less the time for each of the days of your vacation.
enjoy your stay!
Amazing place, great experience. We were in January 2018 – there are no big queues at this time – 20 minutes we waited for tickets. we were on a sunny day around 13 o’clock. – amazing light effects inside. The whole Barcelona beautiful 🙂
Yes, i think Barcelona in January is the most empty tourists-wise! But it does get crazy during the season! I have been there so many times (in the summer) and never managed to visit for this reason.
The light effect is gorgeous!
Thanks for these awesome tips, your post will gonna help many people and I will really gonna follow all these tips while on a visit to this place.
I COMPLETELY agree about the audio tour. Worth every penny! And great tip to book in advance and go during sunset!
I think once you booked your ticket without the audioguide and entered the basilica, you cannot change your mind and pay extra for the audioguide inside, which is a pity!
But yeah, it was great to get more information about this masterpiece!
It really is an amazing place to visit in Barcelona and one of the mistakes I made at the time I visited the place was not to come with a guide to show all the details of the holy family. Very good post 🙂
thanks a lot! 🙂
Its amazing!! I read all your blogs and that all are just fabulous. Although I dont travel much, but I love to read other people experience.
