La Sagrada Familia Feb 28, 2015
Ever since Barcelona was listed in my list "places I wanna see" I remember people were talking about that church.

They talked about how big and fabulous it is.

The day I've got there, it was rain. We were waiting in a long line for more than an hour. I can advise you buying the tickets online and skip the line.

The ceilings are dramatically hight, and ALL the church is extremely big ! Very impressive and fancy place.

All the windows are made of colorful glasses which effects the inside atmosphir and makes it more magical.

I'm trying here to describe what I have experienced while been there, but it's just hard....go see it if you are heading to that gorgeous city Barcelona !

Enjoy my friends :)

WOW Dec 18, 2015
i think this is one of the most spectacular sites i've visited in Barcelona.

Ok, the ticket costs 20€ and you can stay inside only 1 hour,if you have the audio guide you can stay 1h15.

The audio guide tour is a bit chaotic, but that is the best way to understand something about the Sagrada

But believe me, it's amazing! I've been there at sunset time,and i think it's the best time because the light inside is spectacular, the church becomes red, and that leaved me breathless..

Very touristic however, you can't miss it! Apr 15, 2013
-Name: Templo Expiatorio de La Sagrada Familia

-Location: Plaça de la Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain

-Construction Date: 1883 - Still under construction

-Type of building: Temple

-Author: Antoní Gaudí i Cornet

-Main materials: Stone, brick, tile and glass

-Style: Gothic, Neo-gothic, and Art nouveau

-Curiosities: *Gaudí got so obsessed with this project he started to live in a small crypt inside the temple

*To Gaudí art is pure irrationalism, so his technique was the technique of the irrational

*Gaudí was a very religious man who expected to make a tribute to The Creator through his work.

*Gaudí died in June 10th 1926 when a tram run over him while he was on his way to La Sagrada Familia (between the streets Gran via de les corts and Bailén) friends of the architect offered to take him to a private hospital but he said "My place is here, with the poor" and died in the Hospital de la Santa creu.

Pros:

-Beautiful park just infront of it with a lake where you can enjoy a great view of the temple.

-Icon of the catalan modernism movement

-It's arquitechture is something you probably haven't seen before anywhere. It's very unique.

Downsides:

-The place is usually over-crowded in high season, but at least go to see it even if you don't go inside, the outside is worth seeing.

-Price does not include going to the top of the building (+4€)
