La Sagrada Família, Barcelona
Are you planning to visit La Sagrada Família? See our information below!
The Sagrada Família is Barcelona’s busiest landmark and the most famous masterpiece of modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. This gigantic basilica has been under construction since 1882. If all goes well, the Sagrada Família will finally be fully completed by the end of 2026.
One of the reasons why construction is taking so extremely long is because it can only be financed by gifts and donations. Fortunately, this goes a lot faster these days than a century ago. This is because tourists pay an entrance fee to see the inside of the church and that money is used for construction. So that’s why you also contribute a little bit, when visiting the cathedral. Meanwhile, construction has been going on for so long that part of the basilica is already in need of renovation.
The cathedral, by architect Antoni Gaudí, has a unique architectural style both on the outside and inside and consists of a total of 18 different towers. Which are insanely beautiful decorated with many special details you can’t stop looking at. Inside, the cathedral consists of unique shapes and colourful stained-glass windows.
If you would like to see the entire cathedral, make sure in advance, to get an entrance ticket. This is because on busy days, all tickets sell out quickly.
La Sagrada Familia is open every day of the year from: 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM.
