Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia is one of the world’s most unique religious sites and a must-see for visitors to Barcelona. Thanks to its star status, there are dozens of ways to visit—to help you choose the right one for you, see our suggestions below.

For first-timers

Don't skip this landmark on your first visit to Barcelona.

La Sagrada Familia is the first stop on many Barcelona itineraries. Get acquainted with the city on a sightseeing tour that covers the colorful neighborhoods, distinct architecture, and numerous green spaces, all before heading to the cathedral for a guided tour with priority access tickets. You'll get a comprehensive look at all Barcelona has to offer as well as an in-depth insight at the city's most popular landmark.

For those short on time

Squeeze in a visit to Gaudí's masterpiece.

More than 2.8 million travelers visit La Sagrada Familia every year—if you don't have time to wait in those sorts of lines, opt for a skip-the-line tour and enjoy a hassle-free look at the cathedral's interior. Whether you're a return visitor to the city or just want to maximize your time, there are typically several time slots available to fit into any schedule.

For planners

Get ahead of the game.

If you know what you want to see, book a private guided tour that includes entrance to the cathedral in addition to the ability to tailor the itinerary to your interests and spend longer visiting the sights that most interest you. Private tours are a flexible option ideal for visitors who would rather skip a group tour and get undivided attention from a tour guide.

For art lovers

Be sure to appreciate every beautiful detail.

Gaudí is one of Barcelona's most celebrated figures, and joining an art tour of the city will give you skip-the-line access to his masterpiece Sagrada Familia and take you to see his popular UNESCO-listed Park Güell. Culture lovers will get to admire the dramatic Sagrada Familia facade and see the rest of the city's creative side.

For bucket listers

Tick off some big ticket items.

Those looking to check off multiple items on their bucket list can book a tour that combines a visit to La Sagrada Familia with time at Montserrat, another of the region's famed religious sites. Upgrade to skip the line.

For cruise visitors

Make the most of your time on dry land.

If arriving in Barcelona by cruise ship, catch the city's most impressive monument with a shore excursion that makes the most of your time on land with free port pickup and drop-off, guaranteed on-time return to the ship, and skip-the-line access to the Sagrada Familia. These tours are exclusively for cruise ship passengers, offering the opportunity to take in the top sights without worrying about missing the boat.
