Your Sagrada Familia Semi-Private Group Tour begins with a meet and greet just next to the basilica while you, your fellow travelers, and your guide get acquainted. There, you will be able to take advantage of the unobstructed view of Gaudi’s creation. Your guide will share the history behind this architectural wonder, Gaudi’s life, and his inspirations as you visit external vantage points.

Wanting to share the story of the Bible with his fellow citizens, Gaudi made the bold move of depicting stories from the Bible on the façades of Sagrda Familia with stone figures. The side facing the east, with over 300 animals and people,  depicts the Birth of Christ and his 33 years of life on Earth. The opposite façade shows the 12 Stations of the Cross and Christ’s ascension into Heaven. While the southern facing façade, yet to be decorated, will show the Final Judgment and the Glory of God. Your guide will take the time to share with you the details and meaning behind the facades, inspired by Gaudi’s deep faith. You will learn these and many other interesting facts from your expert guide.

Once inside the Sagrada Familia, enjoy the magnificence and serenity of the space as you explore the basilica’s awe-inspiring interior with its soaring ceilings. Be prepared to be entranced by the expressive architecture of Gaudi which was designed to simulate a forest – a place of nature where Gaudi felt closest to God. See the light beaming through the colorful stained glass windows and feel the atmosphere of the enchanted forest made of stone. Your tour will conclude inside the basilica, allowing you as much free time as you desire to wander around and revel in the stories shared with you by your top-rated guide.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

  • Informative tour through a beautiful place

    I went on the La Sagrada Familia tour and I was blown away by how awesome the location was and how interesting the tour was. Olga was our guide and she exceeded the high standard that LivTours sets for their guides. My wife and I have gone on multiple tours with LivTours in the last 5 years and we cannot recommend this company enough…and Olga really impressed us with how much information she knew about the La Sagrada Familia and she had such a welcoming attitude and energy!

  • A Great Afternoon at the Sagrada Familia.

    Olga was an awesome tour guide: she made the tour very intriguing and she was very nice and excited to share her knowledge with us. Our group ended up to be just my wife and I, but her excited and knowledge made the afternoon perfect.

  • Above and Beyond

    I was unable to make the tour because I woke up sick, but my daughter was excited to go and still went. The tour guide was Olga, and she went above and beyond to by taking pictures that my daughter could send to me, as well as give us many recommendations for dinner! I was very happy and impressed that she still tried to make me feel apart of the tour even though I was not there! I highly recommend this tour!

  • Mind Blowing designs and colours in the stained glass

    We visited while we were stopped on shore for a day during our cruise. We booked the tour before we left for our trip in order to skip the long lines. The design of the Sagrada was so detailed and the beauty was extremely moving. I loved how when the Cathedral was completed, the artist made sure that it would not be taller than Mont Juic, so that it did not overshadow one of God's creations. I loved this tour and recommend it to other visiting Barcelona.

  • Amazing Barcelona tour

    Olga was an excellent guide! She was so excited and knew a lot of information. She told us amazing stories that helped bring the places we saw to life, and she was able to answer all of our questions. She even went out of her way to take photos of my husband and I, so that we could remember this tour forever. We were so lucky to have Olga as our guide and we recommend this tour for anyone looking for something to do in Barcelona!
