Sagrada Familia Skip-The-Lines
Sagrada Familia is the most visited site in all of Barcelona, and one of the most visited churches in Europe! It's not surprising that the lines to get in can sometimes go in a circle around the church. We'll skip the line and make sure that your time and attention is not wasted by waiting outside. As you're heading inside with your guide, you will learn the history of this magnificent structure and admire the two contrasting facades of its exterior: the Facade of the Nativity, and the Facade of Passion.
Nowadays, Sagrada Familia attracts more than 3 million visitors each year. Your guide will bring this sensational church to life and make you fall in love with every stone, stained glass window, floor decoration and ceiling carving. The beauty of this architectural masterpiece reflects Antoni Gaudi's strict standards.
Learn about the eccentric genius who envisioned this masterpiece and started working on the Basilica at the age of 30. Gaudi suffered a fatal accident near the construction site in 1926 and will never see his masterpiece finished. Almost 100 years later, Sagrada Familia is still a work in progress. With each passing year, visitors to Sagrada Familia get to see it in a different light and closer to the completion of Gaudi's masterplan.

Great family vacation
This was our first trip out of the country as a family and I must say that The Tour Guy did not let us down! We would have been lost in the city if it wasn't for deciding to take this tour. We made memories to last a lifetime. Thank you again!!
