Had an amazing time on the Sagrada Familia tour!

The tour of the Sagrada Familia was absolutely stunning! We're very thankful for our guide, who explained everything in detail and answered every question we had - and we had many, LOL! I didn’t know that it would soon be 100 years since the construction of the Sagrada Familia began! My friends and I were a bit late, but the guide contacted us and made sure we knew how to catch the group. Try to be there on time, as you don't need that kind of stress on your vacation!

Informative and fun tour!

The booking process was easy without any trouble. The guide was easy to find, and the group size was good enough to get all the information. The security check is a bit strict, so I recommend only carrying things you're supposed to, and definitely consider visiting the Sagrada’s tower top! The best views of the city are there!

Interesting Facts

GAUDI'S RESTING PLACE

The Sagrada Família is not only a church but the final resting place of its architect, Antoni Gaudi. After he passed away, they buried his body in a tomb that rests inside the chapel of the Virgen del Carmen.

'SUNSHINE WAS THE BEST PAINTER'

This quote, once stated by Gaudi, completely aligns with the views you'll witness once inside. On the Nativity side, colors move from yellow to green and deep blue, while on the Passion side, they go from yellow to orange and red. Did you know that each stained glass window features the name of a saint or sanctuary? Take a closer look up and just think about how detailed Gaudi's design was!

THE GLORY PORTAL GATE

The Passion and Nativity facades are memorable and well-known globally. However, one thing left out of the story is the Glory Portal, which will upon completion of Sagrada Familia, become the main entrance. At the moment, you can see the massive bronze doors from the inside which were placed in 2009 with the Lord's Prayer inscribed in Catalan and 49 other languages. Interesting, isn't it?
