What to expect

This short tour starts right by La Sagrada Familia, where you’ll see the Basilica in all of its majesty. After your guide tells you about the work that remains to be finished, get straight inside. You’ll enter via the Nativity Façade which is the only one that Gaudí finished in his lifetime.

During your tour, your guide will help you to compare the different façades of the church, showing you the different ways Gaudí’s plans have been interpreted since his death - and how plans changed during his lifetime too. You’ll also learn about some of the controversies that have swirled around these interpretations.

Stepping inside the Basilica, you’ll fully appreciate the singular genius of Gaudí. As you move between columns designed like trees with capitals forming the canopy of the ceiling, your guide will explain how Gaudí developed his style from both religious, natural, and uniquely Catalonian influences. You’ll also learn about his innovative use of light as you bask in the glow of the rainbow-colored stained glass windows that fill the sanctuary with an otherworldly glow.

There’s no church in the world quite like the Sagrada Familia and there was no architect quite like Gaudí. As you explore his crowning legacy, you’ll hear how this solitary genius came from a humble artisanal family and rose to the very heights of the Catalonian aristocracy through a combination of genius, know-how, friends in high places, and a nearly fanatical dedication to his religion. From his refusal to marry (or even have romantic relationships) to his death that nearly went unnoticed, you’ll learn all about the man whose vision created and continues to create this building.

After a brief look at some of the highlights of the museum, your guide will give you some additional information about what else you can see, including further museum exhibits and Gaudí’s crypt. Both are easily accessible from the basilica and require no extra entrance fees. The museum in particular showcases the process by which Gaudí designed buildings with an utterly unique system of chains and mirrors that actually anticipated computer-driven design.

Of all the ways to see the Sagrada Familia, this is the most affordable, easiest and most accessible; perfect for anyone who doesn’t have a huge amount of time in Barcelona but wants to do justice to its most impressive attraction.
