Full description
Go on a private tour of Barcelona's most iconic building in the company of an expert guide specialized in the work of Gaudí and this summit of modernist architecture. Enjoy the personalized style of a private tour that allows you to have an intimate experience of one of Barcelona's most crowded attractions. Enjoy additional access to one of the Sagrada Familia towers where you can enjoy spectacular, panoramic views of the city.

Skip the line with your guide and head inside to begin your tour of the ornately decorated interior of the cathedral. Learn how the unfinished state of the building led to innovation and experimentation by different artists and architects over the years who tried to replicate Gaudí's style and imagine what his vision for the structure must have been. Check out the first of the cathedral's three main facades depicting the Nativity. Learn how it was the only facade to be completed by Gaudí before his death. Then let your guide introduce you to the façade of the Passion, which was completed by a later artist, Subirach, and has gained recognition for its imposing images of Jesus' death. Admire the stunning neo-gothic interior of the cathedral and the mesmerizing play of light lent by the giant, colored stained glass windows. Lean how the cathedral's master designer and another Catalan artist and friend of Gaudí, Joan Viladrau, collaborated to create the unparalleled atmosphere of the interior. 

Then head to the Sagrada Familia Museum located inside the cathedral. Appreciate how it has been designed to call attention to the building's architecture, the different steps involved in its construction, and the peculiarities and technical specifications that help you better understand the work and the greatness of the achievement. Learn how the current construction is proceeding according to Gaudí's original vision with handcrafted stone as in the ancient tradition of Gothic stonemasons. End your tour with a better appreciation of the Catalan modernist movement and the incredible genius of Gaudí.
