The Sagrada Familia attracts over 4 million visitors a year, although the occasionally long lines outside might make you think that it's 4 million visitors a day! Luckily for you, this ticket lets you waltz right to the front of the queue, so you can spend more time basking in the glory of Gaudi's genius while everyone else gets lightly roasted standing in the Spanish sunshine.
The Sagrada Familia is scheduled to be finished in 2026, which happens to be the centenary of Gaudi's death. These days it's funded primarily from ticket sales, so by visiting, you are helping to construct one of the most majestic buildings in world history.
Outside, the basilica's facades are adorned with religious sculptures and organic art down to the tiniest detail. Its spires reach an impressive 172 meters, and no square inch of the building is spared from Gaudi's colorful flourishes of artistic imagery.
Inside, giant multi-colored tree-shaped columns stretch upwards towards a pristine white ceiling, while the inner walls are bathed in colors from the enormous stained glass windows. As the sun moves throughout the day, the colors shift shapes and change shades inside.
It's all a bit magical.
