Our guide to Skip the Line La Sagrada Família Express Tour
See one of the most unique churches in world with a trained expert who will tell you its improbable (and often troubled) story.
Your short (but sweet!) tour starts right by La Sagrada Família, where you’ll see the basilica in all of its majesty. Hear from your guide what work remains to be finished then skip lines to get straight inside.
You’ll enter via the Nativity Facade, which is the only one that Gaudí finished in his lifetime. During your tour your guide will help you to compare the different faces of the church, showing the different ways that Gaudí’s plans have been interpreted since his death and how plans changed during his life too.
Stepping inside the Basilica, you’ll fully appreciate the singular genius of Gaudí. As you move between columns designed like trees with capitals forming the canopy of the ceiling, your guide will explain how Gaudí developed his style from both religious, natural, and uniquely Catalonian influences.
Learn about Gaudi’s innovative use of light as you bask in the glow of the rainbow-colored stained-glass windows that fill the sanctuary with an otherworldly atmosphere. There’s no church in the world quite like the Sagrada Família and there was no architect quite like Gaudí.
After a brief look at some of the highlights of the museum, your guide will give you some additional information about what else you can see, including further museum exhibits and Gaudí’s crypt. Both are easily accessible from the basilica and require no extra entrance fees.
Of all the ways to see the Sagrada Familia, this is the most affordable, easiest and most accessible; perfect for anyone who doesn’t have a huge amount of time in Barcelona but wants to do justice to its most impressive attraction.
Tour meets Avinguda de Gaudí, 2, (KFC), Barcelona, 08025, at the large ornate lamp post in the middle of the small pedestrian avenue.
