Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Skip The Line Private tour

Highlights

Whether you're a Modernist Architecture expert or not, here you can only recognize Antoni Gaudi's touch. Having dedicated the second half of his life to the monument (and even planned the construction after his death), you will learn that Gaudi was a seriously devout Catholic, and the Sagrada Familia is a great example to understand why he earned the nickname "God's Architect".

Alongside sharing the history of this feat of Spanish engineering widely inspired by faith, your guide will tell captivating stories about the Sagrada Famila, its birth towards the end of the 19th Century, Gaudi's arrival in the project. Did you know there was actually at this time a huge controversy about its architecture, and that some of Barcelona locals are still, to this day, bothered by the Gaudi's masterpiece?

The itinerary

If you're looking to discover the splendor of Barcelona's most impressive monument - and true landmark of Barcelona - with plenty of insider stories and secret anecdotes, you're in the right place! Join your local accredited art historian on a one-of-a-kind Sagrada Familia Private adventure to reveal its most amazing secrets!

Barcelona is not only a showcase for Roman, Medieval & Renaissance art. The city, and its people, also made a major contribution to leading 20th Century avant-garde art movements such as Cubism, and of course Modernism. Well, when it comes to Modernist Architecture, Gaudi is Barcelona's true superstar. Strolling around the city, you sure will see some great examples, but the Sagrada Familia remains so very unique that it deserves a dedicated private tour.

The Sagrada Familia, or the 'Basilica of the Holy Family' is one of Gaudi's genius most striking example, and a witness of his unparalleled - both professional and religious - ambitions. Although it really showcases Catalan Modernism and Gaudi's singular style, you'll find a little Neo-Gothic in there, starting with crypt built by the Basilica's first architect Villar. Paradoxically, Gaudi, who died well before the monument was completed, is buried in the only part of he did not designed himself!

Sagrada Familia now is Gaudi's most famous Barcelona masterpiece and part of UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is expected to be finally inaugurated in 2026, a whooping 100 years after Gaudi's death. Can't wait to see it all done. Guess we'll all have to come back!
