The undisputed symbol of the city, Basilica de la Sagrada Familia is a World Heritage Site that astonishes visitors with its sheer height and intricacy of design.

The central tower rises 170 m (558 ft) above the transept, with 17 other towers of 100 m (328 ft) or more. Visitors have access to the nave, crypt, museum, shop, and two towers.

  • Such and amazing and interesting building. The contracts between the new and the old keeps your brains imagination flowing. Something truly special about this place. Unfortunately today it was closed(26 Dec) But loved the walk around the gardens. Don't worry they haven't finished building..... Yet! 🤣
  • Lovely view. I recommend anyone to visit this place when you're in Barcelona. The artistic talent show that was put into building this edifice is marvelous even though some parts are still under construction. But, it's worth visiting and taking memorable pictures of the building. Remember, for first timers like me who don't know much, you will need to get your ticket online or at the far end of the gate for you to gain entrance. There's are loads of security officers outside the building and I am meant to understand that, that's the major tourist attraction in Barcelona. If you are in Barcelona for a visit, tour or something and you haven't been to this place? I wonder what you're doing there.😁😁😁
