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.

The elevator is only to ride up, and you must walk down, so plan ahead if some of your group aren't prepared to walk down about 400 narrow, curving steps. Also, you are expected to go up the tower first, then explore the cathedral. Have...More

Definitely worth a visit. I would visit this amazing basilica again. There is so much detail to take. Take a guided tour! It's worth it.

We aren't a religious family, however we wanted to see the church as a piece of art, and we knew that it had been unfinished for most of the 20th century. IT's under construction now. What a remarkable piece of outdoor art - brilliant, wonderful...More

Hi. If I remember rightly you can have as much time as you wish but you must stick to the time of entry. Chris

I don't think there should be a problem. Try the Sagrada Familia website ☺

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.
