Overview

La Sagrada Familia is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed cathedral designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is now one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, with a line of visitors to match. Beat the crowds on this exclusive tour, which includes access to the cathedral before it opens to the public for a more intimate experience.  Plus, you'll avoid lines often in excess of two hours with a skip-the-line ticket. 

What to Expect

Your morning begins right at La Sagrada Familia, where you’ll take a moment to admire the building’s dizzying, playful exterior. Skip the long lines already gathered outside and head inside, where you’ll have exclusive access to the cathedral before it has even opened to the public.

Walk down the cathedral’s five aisles that are shaped like a Latin cross and admire the Catalan masterwork from the inside. You can check out the bright stained glass windows and soaring ceilings at your leisure while your guide gives you background on Gaudí’s fascinating architectural inspiration. You’ll hear why construction on the cathedral was begun in 1882 but halted in 1926— and why it remains unfinished. But there’s no rush: you’ll also have time to explore on your own.

With an optional upgrade, you can have exclusive access to the Tower on the Passion facade, where after a short climb you’ll be treated with a spectacular panorama of the city.

Guide was Late, Inexperienced, No Early Access, Total Rip Off

Do not take this tour. This tour is supposed to be "early access" and allow you in before the mass crowds begin. Additionally, you are told to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the 0850 start time. The tour guide arrived at 0848, we then waited...More

In theory, yes. However, when I went it was a little chilly so I was in trousers and a hoody. My husband was in shorts and a t shirt but also had a hoodie on.

Arriving at 8:30 is fine, however as I stated in my review, that does not mean that you will gain early entry (as advertised by Amigo Tours). We arrived at 8:30 but did not enter until 9:10.... even after the general public... More
