Full description
Take a guided tour of La Sagrada Familia cathedral with an expert guide, and marvel at Barcelona’s most iconic landmark in the soft light of the morning. On this tour you’ll admire the artwork of Gaudi. Striking for its architectural features and art, the Sagrada Familia is legendary. It was the all-consuming obsession of the modernist architect, Antoni Gaudi. His work on the building began in 1882 and remains unfinished. During the tour your guide will point out the contrasting nativity and passion façades. You’ll also learn about the symbolism and representations of the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology, constructed in stone. Note the Christian iconography as you hear about the history of the church. See the angled pillars sprouting like a web of tree branches, holding up the roof. Below the ground is the Museu Gaudi, where you’ll find documentation about Gaudi’s life and work. There is also a crypt where masses are held, and a viewing platform above the burial site of the architect.

This is an amazing church and the top attraction in Barcelona. The one caution is I would not advise going up in the elevator to the tower. While the view is better, it is not worth the soreness you will likely get going down the 400 somewhat irregular steps, which is the only way down!

The Sagrada Familia is both a beautiful and inspiring place of worship and a work of genius! Our guide Vigo was great. He not only gave us a history but included quirky little facts that were humorous and enlightening. The Sagrada Familia is a monumental achievement that is not to be missed. It is a feast for the eye and a balm for your soul.

Sara was the most fantastic guide. She gave insight into the exterior and interior to the Sagrada Familia. Inside is BEAUTIFUL! Absolutely worth seeing. The tower access wasn’t worth the money. Climb the bunkers instead. Sara was a fantastic guide and I wouldn’t want to do the tour without her! Thanks so much!
