Which Tower Is Best to Visit at the Sagrada Família?

Antoni Gaudí's most ambitious project is still unfinished almost a century after his death. Only 2 of the stunning Sagrada Família's trinity of towers are complete and open to the public ─ the Nativity façade and Passion façade. Which is most worth the visit?

Architecture

Architecture

Gaudí fans will find his influence most striking in the vibrant Nativity tower. The Passion tower is less ornate, possessing a more earnest Gothic charm.

Religion

Religion

As the names suggest, each tower is religiously symbolic. The joyous Nativity faces the sunrise away from the Passion's starving, skeletal form.

View

View

The Passion tower is the taller of the two. Unfortunately the Nativity tower opens too late to catch the sunrise, but its view is more diverse, if less spectacular.

Access

Access

Both towers have elevators to the top, if you don't have the legs for stairs, but be warned - only the Passion tower has an elevator back down again!

Crowds

Crowds

The Nativity tower is generally less busy as no groups are allowed up. However, if you really don't like crowds, stay outside and see the building illuminated at night instead!

Our insider tips

How to Get There?

The simplest way to get to the Sagrada Família is by metro. Hop off at the conveniently named Sagrada Família metro stop!

When to Visit?

The Sagrada Família is always crowded, but the queues will be at their shortest in the early morning or late afternoon, when the sunlight's at its most magical anyway!

Buying Tickets

If you're not buying tickets in advance, then prepare to queue for hours! They're easily available online and prices differ depending on which parts you want to access and whether or not you want to include an audio guide or tour. Tickets have a 1-hour admission window, but once inside you can stay until closing time.

How Much Time?

You could easily while away 3 or 4 hours at the Sagrada Família, although you can do it in half that if you have a busy itinerary. Just make sure you book tickets in advance!

Exceptional tour! Victor was amazing and so knowledgeable!!

Our tour was so amazing. The Sagrada Familia has so much history and so many of the parts have symbolic meanings. Victor was so wonderful with sharing his knowledge and giving us the greater meanings of all of the parts of the sanctuary. Without the tour we would not have appreciated so many nuances that are within such a magnificent structure. Worth every cent!!

In-depth and unmissable if you are remotely interested in Gaudi.

Our guide Alma was super knowledgeable and all around wonderful. Great expansive tour that lets you get more context around Gaudi’s masterpieces - including Sagrada Família tower climb. Really well orchestrated and executed tour from beginning to end. Would recommend.

A long day for us but totally worth it. Saw everything we wanted to.

Allesia was a great guide, as we would expect. This actually exceeded our expectations in the amount of Gaudi projects we saw. We didn't go inside all of them, but that was OK. We saw plenty of Casa Batllo, Parc Guell and La Sagrada Familia. Thumbs up!

Gaudi Tour with Sagrada Família & Park Güell Tickets Reviewed by

Overall. a very good, knowledgeable guide.

Somehow 6 people missed the tour. Probably because the location was a bit vaguely described, and the voucher we had didn't identify the signs the independent tour operator was holding up. Need clarity

Sagrada Família Skip-the-Line Express Tour Reviewed by

The tour was wonderful because the guides were so knowledgeable.

The tour was excellent because the guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. The church was stunning as were all of the buildings we were shown. If you get a chance, definitely take this tour!
