LivTours Express Private Sagrada Familia Tour is an excellent way to see the most visited monument in Spain.  An early start means missing the crowds, enjoying the solitude of being some of the very first people to enter the basilica.  Your expert local guide will give you a more in-depth understanding of the unique architecture, the history behind this almost finished basilica as well as share the plethora of symbolism. Your guide will also allow you plenty of time to take photographs of the stunning stained glass window interior.

Your guide will be waiting for you just next to the very best vantage point for admiring the basilica from the ground.  A project that was started by a poor shopkeeper in the 1870s by collecting anonymous contributions, the basilica is entering its final stages of construction while still being built by private donations. You will find out who the first architect was and how Gaudi came to be in charge of one of the most admired buildings in the world. His creativity knew no bounds and the final construction will host 18 bell towers with the tallest one reaching the dizzying height of 187.5 meters, just over 6,000 feet. The interior is a jaw-dropping homage to the art of stained glass and architecture which broke the molds.

Your Express Private Sagrada Familia Tour begins with meeting your guide at the best vantage point for seeing the basilica from street level. The soft morning light is perfect for taking photographs of the most visited monument in Spain. Your expert guide will start your private visit by sharing with you the history of how the idea of a simple bookshop keeper became a reality over 150 years ago.

You will find out how Gaudi turned the first architect’s plans on their head by depicting the story of The Bible on the façades of the basilica.  The façade showing the story of Jesus during his time on Earth hosts over 300 animals and people and faces East – the direction which is the start of every day. The opposite façade shows the story of Easter with the 12 biblical stories that lead up to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Your expert guide will tell you about the main façade, dedicated to the Final Judgment and the Glory of God, and why it is not yet decorated. Gaudi was a deeply religious man, using symbolism throughout his designs and your expert guide will give you greater insight into that symbolism, as well as the unique architectural feats.

Once inside, admire the tenuous morning light beaming through the colorful stained glass windows as you soak up the atmosphere of the magical stone forest created by Gaudi, along with engaging commentary from your 5-star guide on this marvellous creation. Come enjoy a morning of solitude and amazing architecture with LivTours!

We definitely recommend this tour

"We were very pleased with our tour of the Sagrada Familia with LivSpain's guide, Maria. She was an excellent guide and very personable. Accessing the church in the early morning is also well worth whatever difficulties you might have getting there early. We entered before the main crowds and had the chance to explore and admire the architecture in complete comfort. "

5 star tour of the Sagrada Familia

"How many times had we seen the Sagrada Familia cathedral in art and coffee table books! Believe me, to see it in real life, is breathtaking!!! If you are like us and want to understand the history of this masterpiece and what influenced this particular style, we can highly recommend that you take LivSpain's tour. We were particulary happy that we had booked an early morning entrance as we were able to wonder around and really appreciate this marvelous creation without too many other people around. "

Great tour

"Our family of 4 booked this tour with LivSpain so that we could understand better the (somewhat contorted) history of this world-famous place and about Gaudi's life and works. On both counts, we were completely satisfied. Great tour! Thanks!"
