Stumbled across it the other day as it was near where I was staying. I looked up, gasped, swore to myself, laughed then had tears in my eyes.
One mans dream turned into reality. An incredible physical metaphor for the power of faith, hope and humanity.
Absolutely stunning. Yes, the lines are long, but GO IN. Well worth the €12.50 to see the inside. The stained glass windows are amazing and the detail throughout is just awesome. My tip is to pay the additional 2.50 and take the lift. The views are incredible, and the spiral staircases are worth the trip themselves. Take the lift down if you’re afraid of heights, notfor the faint of heart!

Sorry, I am going to go against the flow. This is possibly the ugliest building I have ever seen. A complete waste of time, money and effort. I am afraid I am a traditionalist at heart and this monstrosity does nothing for me. It is scheduled to be completed in 2026. If I had my way it would be demolished in 2027. A complete blot on the Barcelona skyline. Each to their own.
Quite possibly the most beautiful building I've ever seen. The Sagrada Familia is all about the detail, each area of the cathedral has a different style and a different theme. Each individual bit is carefully crafted by hand and the fact that it's going to taken over 100 years to carefully build this much of the cathedral is breathtaking.
When I was little I was always saying,; what is so amazing in churhes? I didn't realize the beauty in them, and until summer 2008 I was blind. Sagrada Famiglia is something special to see and experience. After a short tour (cca. 3hours) we went outisde and sit behind it. I was staring at her for at least 30 minutes, so many details, big, beutiful, enchanting.
A must see if youre a tourist, however, my sister and i got bored pretty quick.
Entrance fees were about 22 euros each (from what i could remember. whatever it was, it was expensive!). Some people, obviously smarter than us, chose to stand outside and take pictures from there instead.
Theres a lift service which takes you higher up the cathedral. However there was quite a long queue for this.
Speaking of queues, my sister and i got there at 10am, and we were behind about 10 people. When we left, the queue was 10 times the size, so its best to get there early!
Also, i recommend reading about the cathedrals history before you go. I didnt and i feel if i had done, i would have appreciated it more.

Sagrada Familia, a cathedral to rival all cathedrals. It is history in the making. Photos can not show the sheer magnificence of this stunning piece of architecture, one can not truly appreciate the wonders and story of every piece of stone that has been carefully carved, shaped and placed to form this spectacular masterpiece.
With a prediction of another 50 years until completion, a little help from the detail drawings and sketches along with the stunningly detailed models of the building, one can just visual the glory of the finished building once all the scaffolding has been taken down.
A key piece to see in Barcelona, if you are not scared of heights, it is well worth queueing to take the short lift ride up a spiral to the top to see Barcelona from birds eye view, before taking the long whiny starts down while stopping occasionally to appreciate the details of the architecture close up.
If I have taken one memory away with me from La Sagrada Familia, it is its collossal size! Images of the enormous tree-like columns growing from the floor and into the heavens. The story of the structure alone is enough to blow your mind: with construction beginning in 1883 by the famous Antoni Gaudi and expected to finish no earlier than 2026...
The construction being solely reliant on donations and entrance fees, I encourage anyone to become part of the story, and visit this spectacular monument to human ingenuity and creativity.
That place is just astonishing. I bet that you’ve never ever seen something like this before in your life. That monument is literally bloom from the ground scraping the sky, with its architecture with no standards at all. Dragon and others shapes and creatures cover the whole building. Really really impressive, hardly describable, I spent a pure intense moment staring at it that brought straight in the fantasy way way from here!! Don’t miss it, would be a shame seriously.
Is nothing short of breathtaking. I have seen most of the major attractions in Europe, and this stands out from most of the rest.
It may take a while standing in a queue to get up the elevators to the top, but it is worth it! The view from the top is amazing, with a 360 degree view around Barcelona. the architecture is spectacular. From having seen this masterpiece of architecture, one can understand why Gaudi spent so many of his last years of life, solely working on this building. Is a must-see if you go to Barcelona, without a doubt!
Absolutely amazing. This is a must see in Barcalona and you will end up taking so many pictures just trying to get one that does it justice. The work is so detailed, it is just incredible. The unfinished Cathedral is spectacular and it is definitely worth going inside where you can see the work in progress and find out about its’ history and that of the architect. It lives up to all the hype.
A stunning and beautiful church which was designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi and still 100 years later isn’t finished. It’s idea was to provide a place, primaily, for the people of Barcelona to come and worship this is the most beautiful building I have ever seen. The back of the Sagrada Familia is ornate and older in style, and it’s unbelievable that people have carved the intricate religious depictions out of the stone by hand. The front is a lot more modern and still as beautiful even though the two styles are completely contrasting. When visiting you will notice that the building work is still ongoing, and quite rightly so due to the amount of hard work and determination that has gone into building it. There are four steep spires each containing a spiral staircase which we chose to climb by foot. It does get very scary near the top but definitely worth it for the stunning views over Barcelona. This was Gaudi’s last project and he died being run down by a tram outside and never got to see his dream finished. Incredibly Gothic in style and with the most amazing stained glass windows, one visit is definitely not enough to appreciate the beauty and workmanship. Definitely have a go at crossing the spires by the little bridge, probably one of the bravest things I have ever done as I am so scared of heights but again well worth it.
Taking the lift to the top of the spires of the Sagrada Familiar affords you spectacular views across this sprawling Spanish city, the heart of Catalyna. However this is probably not best suited to those who suffer from vertigo as the small bridge between the spires (look at any photo) are narrow and the side walls aren’t that high!
This Gaudi building is spectacular. The detail inside and out is so intricate it has to be seen to be believed, you won’t have seen anything like it. The views of Barcelona from the top are amazing but you will either have to be patient and wait quite a while for the lift up or take the many steps up to the top.
One of the most amazing places to visit. I have been here over the years and I wish I had been more particular with my photos so that I could have seen how this building has grown. You could spend hours gazing at the amazing architecture and admiring how something so old can be so contemporary. You need a steady nerve to climb the winding stairs to the top, but definitely worth the shaky knees for another view of this building and Barcelona.
The sagrada familia is a truly awesome building. While it may not be to everyone’s taste (mine included) it is definitely a sight to see. The sheer size of it is overwhelming. If you do decide to go in it costs 10euros and as it is unfinished this means that there is a lot of scaffolding and not much to see in the interior of the cathedral, however, if you pay to go in you might as well pay the extra 2euros to go to the top of the building. While not for the faint-hearted this is the best part of the whole place. The views are incredible and if you walk down, rather than getting the lift, you can really see Gaudi’s intricate architecture.
