La Sagrada Familia Spain tours: prices, duration and tips to make your visit unforgettable!

La Sagrada Familia is definitely the most majestic and stunning monument in Barcelona. This Gaudi’s masterpiece is still incomplete and works are expected to finish in 2026, the year that marks the centenary of the Spanish architect’s death.

The construction is partially declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and this award is limited to the areas built by Gaudi.

The posthumous parts, following anyway the original architectural project, have been added later by other architects. Maybe Gaudi was aware that he would be not able to finish his work and that’s why he planned the whole façade with its 4 major towers.

Do you know the real aim of La Sagrada Familia? Even if it is always considered the new Basilica in Barcelona (it is proclaimed as a Basilica only in 2020 by Pope Benedict XVI), La Sagrada Familia is a temple of Christianity and it is not a case the monument will be the highest attraction of the city and the largest church in the world.

After this historical overview, let’s move to the physical structure of the Church. When you approach this huge monument, you will be charmed by its style, of course, but especially by its towers.

La Sagrada Familia

The temple is the consecration of Faith where Jesus’ life and the history of religion are represented. In fact, its 18 towers reflect the main characters of The Bible: 12 of them represent the apostles, 4 are the Evangelists, one is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and the tallest one is the symbol of Jesus Christ that will be topped with a cross reaching a height of 172 meters.

Now that you had an overview from the upper parts, we want you to look at the gigantic façades. La Sagrada Familia has 3 façades. Each one represents a stage of Jesus’ life - Nativity, Passion and Glory – and has an entrance door (it is not still sure which door pilgrims and visitors will enter from).

If, on one hand, the exterior of La Sagrada Familia does not lack anything to be considered as a temple, the human mind is not able to imagine how astonishing the interiors can be.

Although Gaudi designed the Basilica on Gothic and Byzantine church models, La Sagrada Familia is full of light, colours and emotions. The modernist plan of the church looks like a very big Latin cross with 5 different naves.

The most striking elements are the columns reflecting the architecture of the Basilica that has no straight lines. Are you wondering why? The Church is an imitation of nature and the columns are the pillars of nature itself.

Another spectacular feature of La Sagrada Familia is the altar, where the crucified Christ does not look downwards as we are used to see, but his face is turned heavenwards to ask for God’s support.
