  • Obviously, this is the main site to visit in Barcelona. It is overwhelmed with people at all times of the year. Go for the first timed visit in the morning as early as possible to avoid the worst...

  • We pre-booked our tickets online a few weeks before our trip to Barcelona to save queuing to pay on the day & to guarantee we got in, this was a good decision as we went straight to the short queue...

  • Amazing church to visit. A real wonder. must see in Barcelona. Best to buy tickets online in advance.
  • Obviously worth a visit, at least to see the outside. It’s an amazing structure. We almost didn’t go inside, but had some extra time in Barcelona so went I side. Really beautiful. Can see what is left to be built, watch documentary about construction, see early ideas for church. It’s pretty neat.
