Sagrada Família

Monument & Heritage Open in this Schedule Check location

Attracting 3 million visitors per year, La Sagrada Familia is the most visited monument in Spain.

It takes around 1-2 hours to visit the still unfinished church designed by the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí in 1882, which is planned to be completed by 2026, to celebrate the centenary of Gaudí’s death.

The price of the entrance depends on the extras and it may include access to the towers, which offer an amazing view over Barcelona’s skyline. It has 12 lower towers that symbolizes the apostles and six of greater height.

The construction started in 1882 and after the resignation of Francisco de Paula del Villar, Gaudí took over as chief architect.

The project combined Gothic with Art Nouveau, with Cubism elements, but the tragic death of the architect, who was run down by a tram in 1926, left the church incomplete.

The interior has a form of a Latin cross with five aisles, with a central nave reaching 45 meters, but the columns are the best example of Gaudi’s vision. When the Spanish civil war delayed the project in the 1930´s, the construction was resumed in the 1950´s.
