Sagrada Familia in January

Whilst in BCN we want to visit the Sagrada Familia. However, we don't want to be tied to a time. Do you think it necessary to book for a January weekday? Thank you.

Hola,

Jan should be less busy than Christmas or the summer but who knows for sure? If the weather has not been nice, people may flock to the basilica on a sunny day. Have a look at Traval2's comments in this thread:

Usually first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon should be the best times to avoid the longest queues.

I would book online to prevent unwanted surprises. Barcelona gets more tourism than any other city in Spain.

Wise advice from both Benny and Gigis_mum, still, if you were not to pre-book, count on a queue of say 60' average. You might get lucky and have much less queue in any given day in January or be unlucky enough to catch a day in which several dozen bus coaches visit at the same time same hour then you might have to wait even more. Sorry, not really any 'good' advice we can give you on this one.
