The undisputed symbol of the city, Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a World Heritage Site that astonishes visitors with its sheer height and intricacy of design. This impressive church was designed by one of Spain’s renowned architects, Antoni Gaudí. Though Gaudí produced some of the country’s most inspiring buildings, this church is his most famous work. This masterpiece in the very heart of the city, featuring Gothic and Art Nouveau elements, is 95 m (312 ft) long and 60 m (197 ft) wide, with a seating capacity of 13,000. The central tower rises 170 m (558 ft) above the transept, with 17 other towers of 100 m (328 ft) or more. Visitors have access to the nave, crypt, museum, shop, and two towers. To avoid long lines, book tickets online. Put Basilica of the Sagrada Familia on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Barcelona attractions app.

  • Such and amazing and interesting building. The contracts between the new and the old keeps your brains imagination flowing. Something truly special about this place. Unfortunately today it was closed(26 Dec) But loved the walk around the gardens. Don't worry they haven't finished building..... Yet! 🤣
  • Lovely view. I recommend anyone to visit this place when you're in Barcelona. The artistic talent show that was put into building this edifice is marvelous even though some parts are still under construction. But, it's worth visiting and taking memorable pictures of the building. Remember, for first timers like me who don't know much, you will need to get your ticket online or at the far end of the gate for you to gain entrance. There's are loads of security officers outside the building and I am meant to understand that, that's the major tourist attraction in Barcelona. If you are in Barcelona for a visit, tour or something and you haven't been to this place? I wonder what you're doing there.😁😁😁
