Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy the sunset lights through the stained-glass windows
  • Avoid crowds at a time when the church has few visitors
  • Discover Gaudí's impressive architecture
Full description
Throughout your guided tour, you will be able to observe the facades and the interior of the Basilica. You will acquire the essential knowledge that only your guide can provide you, on the symbolism that represents the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology through the construction in stone.

In this temple you will see the exaltation of the Family of Nazareth as a model of a united family, Christians, and Roman Catholics. You will also learn to be able to recognize the principles of their various faiths. In the same way, those who profess a different faith, or none at all, can find in it the clues for the understanding of the Christian religion. You will learn of the history of the church, sacred scripture, the tradition of dedication to the saints, and the Christian doctrine and worship. In addition, you will understand all the secrets that are hidden in Gaudí's architecture and design.

You will enjoy the last access to this monument for the day, when there is hardly any public in the interior. This will allow you to discover the magic that creates the light of the sunset when crossing the windows of the Basilica, creating a spectacle of colors.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining.

Seeing Sagrada Familia was a dream come true for me and it was the highlight of my trip to Spain. Antonio Gaudi is also one of my most loved architects, so it was a very emotional experience for me to see his works up close and personal. I can not wait to return one day soon.

Tera was enthusiastic and very sweet.

I speak no Spanish so there were parts of her explanations that I could not really understand. More my issue than hers.

Our guide attends church there. What a plus for his perspective

Our guide attended church at the Basilica which provided a perspective and knowledge of the Basilica that was captivating. The early evening tour that maximized the sunlight coming through the stained glass windows made the views and experience a must see.
