Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Make your visit to the Sagrada Familia unforgettable with a 1.5-hour guided tour of Gaudí’s masterpiece. See the Basilica’s dream-like façade and interior in a small-group or private tour setting accompanied by an expert guide. During the tour you will learn about the ongoing construction, the current predicted completion date, and the generations of craftspeople, architects and artists learned how to bring Gaudi’s vision to life. Your guide will meet you outside, starting the tour with a little introduction before heading to the Basilica’s entrance. After you’ve headed through security, you will hear all about the Nativity Façade. This was the first completed section of the Basilica and the one that Gaudí personally worked on the most in his lifetime. Try to decode the many symbols that Gaudí left for the viewer to decipher. Next, you will step into the interior of the Sagrada Familia. Marvel at the world created by the intense colored light from the stained glass windows and the branch-like columns extending over the ceiling. Gaudí intended for the interior to look and feel like a walk through the woods, with the light exuding a sense of sifting through forest leaves.  As you exit the Basilica you will hear about the Passion Façade, representing the story of Jesus’ crucifixion. Experience the drama of the Passion through the tower’s stark and angular sculptures. This façade, like most of the Sagrada Familia, was built after Gaudí’s death.  Head to Sagrada Familia Schools next, designed for the children of the workers building the Sagrada Familia. Hear how it was reconstructed more than once and even moved locations to make way for the Basilica.  Your last stop will be the Sagrada Familia Museum, where your guide will share original sketches and plans with you that demonstrate the complexity of Gaudi's architecture and vision. Find artifacts here from Gaudi’s life and the Basilica's own history, such as his upside-down model of the Basilica.

    Our tour with Victor was EXCELLENT! There wasn't a single question that he couldn't answer, and we asked a lot of questions. We followed the meet up point directions and found Victor exactly where he was supposed to be. The tour was a good amount of time, very informative, and very welcoming to people of all kinds.

    The guide picked us up on time and was clear with instructions. He took us on a fantastic tour of the basilica and pointed out all the sights. He acquired a deep knowledge of history and art with anecdotes and personal tips. He was good at bringing people, historical events and places to life. We learned in an easy, fun and fact-packed way about the history of the country, the region and the city as well as lots of things about Gaudi's life and artistic work. We were absolutely enchanted - a fantastic tour !!

    Just, WOW! Sagrada Familia will move you to tears. We went at 4:15pm and were able to catch the afternoon sun coming through the windows and illuminating the basilica in a red glow which symbolizes the blood of Christ. Our guide knew every detail and had an answer to every question. He did not rush us and allowed us to take photos and just enjoy the space while he continued explaining everything we were looking at. This is the BEST way to truly appreciate Gaudi’s masterpiece. Our guide and the experience was worth every penny and more!
