The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a monumental church devoted to the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Construction began in 1882, based on plans drawn up by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, and Antoni Gaudi was commissioned to continue the project in 1883. The Temple has always been an expiatory church, built only from donations. As Gaudi said: "The Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people." In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the site as a minor basilica.

What can I say - this place was amazing. From the outside the building is great but still with work being done on it. But inside the beauty is awe inspiring! You must go. I’ll be returning after 2026 when it’s completed

We pre-booked our time ticket and walked right in during our appointment. There are only 7 stops on the audio guide - but while the outside is fascinating it is the inside and the incredible rainbow of lights caused by the stained glass windows that...More

A definite must-see when in Barcelona. Under construction since 1882, this basilica is certainly a unique architectural style; Gaudi was either a genius or a madman. The detail on each of the three grand facades is impressive and the spires are striking. Make sure you...More

The canyons of this cathedral are amazing but the scale overwhelmed me, I much preferred the intimacy of Gaudis casa Batllo & Mila. The Sagrada must be visited not just observed from the outside!

Every time I travel to Europe I visit cathedrals-- every city has one that you just can't miss, but after a while they all seem to blend together in my memory. This one certainly stands out. It's uniquely beautiful from every angle and certainly worth...More
