Overview

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

This masterpiece is the symbol of the city and rightly so. Take your time to pay attention to the details from the outside and all the different, contrasting combinations of elements. See the building from all around. Truly one-of-a-kind.

Despite undergoing building works, it was still an amazing sight. Definitely a must-see if you are visiting Barcelona. If you get the chance to go up into the towers please do! The sights of the whole city are amazing!!

Gaudi's creative architecture is so extraordinary, that touring this basilica is like floating through an elaborate dream of whispering trees and purple sunshine while reading the 23rd Psalm. If you visit Barcelona and miss seeing this unique marvel, just go ahead and throw yourself into...More

If you are one who appreciates art, this is a go to place. The nativity facade is very intricate and beautiful. However, once you are inside the church, you are completely blown away with the design and structures and colours.
