Our tips

Our tips

  • During high season (April-September), especially in the summer, the biggest waiting lines can be seen during the first half of the day: right from the opening time the long queue stretches around and can seem really discouraging. During lunchtime the queue becomes smaller, but standing in it gets harder (especially under the hot Spanish summer sun).

  • In the evening (after 17:00) the waiting will take much less time but there’s a risk that all the tickets for the day are already sold out (see below). If you don’t want to take risks, the best option would be to arrive about 20 minutes before the opening time.

  • We advise you to avoid an average wait of about 1-1,5 hours and to buy your ticket online. The number of people that can visit the church at the same time is limited, so it makes sense to book your place in advance. During peak periods (high season weekends, bank holidays, etc.) there’s a possibility that after standing 2 hours in the queue for the ticket office you’ll get a ticket with the entrance time 3 hours later. Thus your plans for the day may be ruined and you’ll be stuck for half the day near Sagrada Familia.

  • While booking the ticket on online you’ll see how many tickets are left for this or that time slot (if there are no more than 10 tickets left). Choose the one with the biggest number left. By the way, most people tend to book the visit for a “round” time: 10:00, 11:00… If you book for a previous or the following slot - there’s a high possibility there will be less people. That’s how it works: 200 tourists come to the entrance with their tickets in hand at 10:00, and just 40 of them at 10:15.

  • During bad weather the lifts to the towers can be closed.

  • Group visits in English start at 11:15, 12:30, 13:45 and 15:00 every day during high season and on weekends during low season. On weekdays from October to March they start at 10:15, 12:15 and 15:00.
