The Barcelona Diaries | Part Two: La Basílica de la Sagrada Família

Here is the second instalment of my series: The Barcelona Diaries and today I bring to you La Sagrada Família. Possibly the most famous tourist attraction in Barcelona? You can definitely tell why, Gaudí’s work is absolutely stunning. Even though the building still isn’t finished, it doesn’t take away from the absolutely breathtaking exterior. When doing a tour of the city, the narration on the bus told us that Gaudí wasn’t concerned about the finish date of his Basílica de la Sagrada Família, because his ‘client is in no hurry’ as God has all the time in the world. The quote really stuck with me, as I think it shows his passion and patience for what he loves.

I visited La Basílica de la Sagrada Família when I was 10 years old with my grandparents, and I loved it. It brought back a lot of nostalgia for me, and it is definitely a place I hold close to my heart. We actually bought a ticket to enter the building, which cost €18. I would say that if you are planning on visiting La Sagrada Família, you should book your tickets to enter the building online. We waited until we got there, and when you buy the ticket, you have to wait for the entry time. It makes for a lot of waiting around, so I would definitely book online. Also, we booked only the basic ticket, which gives you access to the ground floor only, but should you want to go into the towers or visit other areas, you will need to get an advanced ticket.
