Without any doubt, the most singular, different, and extraordinary monument designed by Antoni Gaudí is this Basilica. With the Sagrada Familia private tour, you will visit the interior, discovering what it means and its history. Don’t worry about how to get skip-the-line tickets. I will take care of everything.
This visit lasts about 2 hours and we will see the inside of the Basilica, the Nativity and Passion facades, the deambulatory, a unique type of cloister, and the museum. It is also possible to visit the bell towers if you wish. Just keep in mind that tickets sometimes sell out, and the capacity of the towers is very limited, so I recommend you contact me as soon as possible so I can get skip-the-line tickets at the time that suits you best.
The tour to the Sagrada Familia is private, just for you and yours. It means you can ask me all the questions you want and stop to look at or take pictures of what interests you the most. I will explain everything you want to know about Antoni Gaudí and the Sagrada Familia project. And if you come with children, I will tour adapted so they can participate and have fun.
The light and color of the interior are magical. Throughout the day the colors are transformed: from the coldest blues and greens to the most intense and warm yellows, oranges, and reds. Strolling through the forest of columns that Gaudí imagined and that we can admire today is a privilege and an unforgettable experience.
If you desire and there is availability, the tour can finish with a visit to the towers. From the top, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Barcelona and, you will be able to appreciate some of the details of the construction. The way up is by elevator and the way down is by the spiral staircase.
With my Sagrada Familia private tour, you will understand why this building is not finished yet, why the construction is taking so long, and why millions of people are coming every year from all over the world to admire it. This monument is not just another church; it is something you cannot miss because it is the perfect union between art, tradition, spirituality, and technology.
I have been an internal specialized guide of the Sagrada Familia since 2016, and as an art historian, this visit is undoubtedly my favorite one. The best part of my job is when I see the surprise and admiration of the expressions of the visitors entering La Sagrada Família for the first time. It excites me and fills me with pride. For me, explaining and enjoying Antoni Gaudí's architecture is a privilege that I love to share.
Due to the characteristics of the towers, wheelchair access is not possible, but the rest of the basilica is accessible for people with walking issues or wheelchair.
The works began in 1882 and, it is still under construction (139years). It was supposed to be finished in 2026 (centenary of Gaudí’s death). But due to the world pandemic, it is not known when it will be finished.
