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
We were given the address of 301, then 311 for meeting the group. No one there. We tried to communicate with the tour group and got no place. We found out there are 2 311 addresses. Tour started 20+ minutes late. Sagrada Familia is a beautiful church. Need to be clearer on the meeting place.
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.
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!
So many bible stories told in stone, biblically sound. The stain glass windows are breathtaking & the reflection of colour over the interior changes constantly. Had a very peaceful feel even though there where thousands of people around.
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
