Top sights in Barcelona
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?
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.
As the names suggest, each tower is religiously symbolic. The joyous Nativity faces the sunrise away from the Passion's starving, skeletal form.
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.
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!
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!
The simplest way to get to the Sagrada Família is by metro. Hop off at the conveniently named Sagrada Família metro stop!
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!
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.
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!
- When should I visit?Open at 9:00 AM. Closing times are: November to February 6:00 PM, April to September 8:00 PM, March and October 7:00 PM.
- Is it expensive?Free to see from the outside, prices for a visit inside start at €15, with options to add guides or tower visits.
- Will I need a guide?It will definitely help. Guides and audio guides are available for an added cost when you buy your entrance ticket.

What people are saying about Sagrada Familia
I would recommend you meet your guide at the Information meeting point in the square as we were treated to some extra sites and knowledge on the way to the shop to collect our bikes!! A great few hours seeing some of the sites.
Sagrada Familia is an impressive construction with a beautiful history behind it. Victor was a very knowledgeable guide and could not only give us an amazing overview but also answer to questions in much detail! The quality of GYG Original tours is top-notch - can't recommend them enough.
HAd a wonderful guided tour of Barcelona and whether it was just bby the bus, walking or actually being in each spot of this well rounded tour, the details were awesome and the hidden gems like Eg. the Lift at the Columbus column, the Barcelona kiss etc that were shared really were true (I asked other friends abt some of these and they didnt know!). The skip the line worked exactly like it is supposed to and adequate time provided. The small bus was perfect and service was awesome. Miguel, our tour guide is the best, funny and wants to spread all info he has. I later took a tour of my own across all the places that we had to see just by the bus, but again Miguel's guidance helped. Overall you don't feel tired at the end of it and return with a great experience.
We had a great experience with Kurt our driver for the day. Although the weather wasn`t kind to us, we were picked up at our hotel & sat back & let Kurt show us Barcelona. Kurt was very knowledgeable & had a great insight into the history & surrounds to show us & tell us. He arranged our quick entrance into Sagrada Familia all while we enjoyed lunch at a great paella & tapas restaurant he had booked ahead for us at an indoor table because of the rainy day, amongst some many great other popular tourist spots. Would happily recommend Kurt & In Out Barcelona Tours if your looking for a great tour, with ease of booking & clear communications upon booking & updated information as to who our driver was going to be.
Marc was very friendly and knowledgeable. La Sagrada Família is easily the most beautiful structure in the world.
