The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a monumental church devoted to the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Construction began in 1882, based on plans drawn up by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, and Antoni Gaudi was commissioned to continue the project in 1883. The Temple has always been an expiatory church, built only from donations. As Gaudi said: "The Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people." In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the site as a minor basilica.

Stunned, blown away, overawed, speechless, emotional It's simply one of the most beautiful awe inspiring buildings I have ever had the good fortune to visit. It's incomprehensible to put the construction timetable into perspective with ones own life, and it's still got 10 to 20...More

Should be fine. so long it not gonna be very late like 50min-1hr (Unguided tour). As there is no specific duration for you to be inside. Unless your ticket consists of a guided tour. Maybe that will be a problem.
