What to expect

On this tour you'll be able to marvel at the two stunning completed facades and eight dizzying towers inspired by the peaks of Barcelona's holy mountain Montserrat. After more than 100 years of tireless work, the facade of the Sagrada Familia is still under construction and it’s easy to appreciate why. Our guide will share tales of Gaudí's love affair with his final work, how he considered the project his personal holy mission and the great personal sacrifices he made to ensure its completion. Sadly, he would not live to see it finished. Such was the complexity of the design that despite taking on the project at 31 years of age, Gaudí only lived to see the completion of one facade, one tower, the apse and the crypt.

This tour's trademark skip-the-line access will bring us straight past the long entrance lines and into the heart of the basilica. You’ll feel as though you have stepped into an alternate universe. Gaudí’s characteristic dislike for straight lines will become disorientingly evident as we pass beneath rows and rows of tree-like pillars. Though construction is ongoing and not estimated to be completed until 2030, much of the Basilica can be visited today. The entrance fees collected from groups such as ours continue to ensure enough funding to see Gaudí’s dream through to completion. The basilica was consecrated and declared a minor basilica in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.

Whether you have visited the Sagrada Familia already or this is your first time, this constantly evolving masterpiece will never fail to surprise and inspire you!
