Experience

Highlights
  • Skip the long lines to the Sagrada Família
  • Explore Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece from the outside and inside
  • Get a better appreciation of Gaudí's innovative architectural styles
Full description
Enter the magnificent Sagrada Família via the Nativity Façade, the only one that Antoni Gaudí finished in his lifetime. Compare the different faces of the cathedral, and learn what parts remain unfinished almost 130 years after work started under the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar in 1882.

Hear how Gaudí’s plans have been interpreted since his death, and learn about the controversies surrounding these interpretations. Move between the columns designed like trees that form the canopy of the ceiling. Explore how Gaudí developed his style from different religious, natural, and Catalonian influences.

Get a better appreciation for his innovative use of light as you bask in the glow of the stained-glass windows that flood the interior with an other-worldly light. Look at some of the highlights of the museum, and visit the crypt where Gaudí was buried following his death in 1926.
