Description of the guided tour

Take a plunge into the spiritual and architectural dream-turned-reality of Antoni Gaudí on a guided tour with an accredited guide accredited by the Government of Catalonia.

The interior and exterior of the basilica, the interesting life of this brilliant architect and also the hidden symbols that are scattered throughout the work.

 Despite being under construction for over 130 years, and with a completion date sometime in the next decade, the Sagrada Familia attracts nearly 4 million visitors annually.

Not surprisingly, we recommend purchasing an entrance ticket ahead of time. On this visit, you’ll learn everything from the little-known details to the most fabled legends.

Explore why this project had such an imprint on the Gaudí, even becoming an obsession, and what inspired the design of each nook and cranny inside and outside, which feature no straight lines. Please, don’t hesitate to ask as much as you like. Once the tour ends, you can remain inside the temple and savour the visit for as long as you like.

 “I have shown La  Sagrada Familia to many people; if the exterior is surprising, the interior is even more so. Many people are moved when they enter. It is like entering a forest. You will see its trees, its leaves, its brightness. I believe the apparent simplicity of the temple, its light, its almost organic forms are moving. A simplicity that brings us close to Gaudí”.

 José, Founder of Lookingbarcelona
