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!

What people are saying about Sagrada Familia
What a fantastic structure. The guide really helped explain the history and ideas and back story. The tower is a must with amazing views of the city.
A little costly but booked the day we visited and literally no other tickets were available... enjoyed guide-she was informative and fun to listen too
The whole tour experience was very inspiring and it also provided us moments to reflect spiritually in a non-rushed way. A suggestion: It would be more helpful if there were group signs for the participants to gather properly and in a more organised way in the office, before the start of the tour. Thank you.
The tour guide was very informative but the tour did not start well. At the appointed time we could not find our tour guide and as we were looking found 5 more people along the way who where looking for her as well. She should have a flag or something to distinguish her from the crowd. The information that she had we could not fault
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.
