Owner description: 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

Reserve your ticket online the day before to avoid the lines or missing the cathedral altogether. The evening is the best when the afternoon light pours through the stained glass You might think for a moment that you are in a forest of dappled light.

Impressive example of great architecture. It's totally worth a visit, but make sure you book well in advance to prevent a disappointment. Many times it's not possible to visit if you try to book on the day of your visit.

We took the guided tour through the official website, and while the guide was occasionally a little tough to understand, she was incredibly knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the site and Gaudi. We walked around a bit on our own after the tour, to soak up more of the splendor and genius of the church. Looking forward to coming back for another tour when it’s completed!
