Sagrada Familia Antoni Gaudi Barcelona Spain
Time to share our Barcelona Spain stories. We visited Barcelona after we watched and inspired by the Korean TV Reality Show Grandpa Over Flowers. We were thinking if the grandpas can travel on their own in Barcelona, why not us? Barcelona Spain was part of our first Europe trip and we learned so much about Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and his works and masterpieces including Sagrada Familia.
There was a hiccup on our travel from London to Barcelona and it shortened our stay in the Catalan city in Spain. Cutting our trip short in Barcelona means we have to travel more and spend less time on food. We stayed in a room (via Airbnb) near Sagrada Familia and we walked to the iconic structure first thing in the morning to avoid the long queue.
What you need to do know is there are many SIM card shops in this area as well as Hop on Hop off Bus. There are two prominent Hop on hop of bus companies and both are more the less the same, you can purchase on the spot or book it at KKDay at https://www.kkday.com/en/product/1266?cid=8500
For the Sagrada Familia tickets, we recommend you to get the Fast Track ticket at https://www.kkday.com/en/product/19591?cid=8500 so you avoid the queue, with the guided language and stop wasting time. The faster you get into Sagrada Familia, you get to see more especially in the morning.
Sagrada Familia is expected to complete in 2026 and it is one of the work of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. There are a number of prominent works of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona such as the Guell Park, Casa Batlló The House of Bones, Casa Calvet, Casa Milla and more. If you are interested at Antoni Gaudi’s work, time to plan your Barcelona trip visiting most of his works.
Sagrada Familia is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is probably the most popular tourist attraction in Barcelona. If you didn’t visit Sagrada Familia, then you don’t consider visiting Barcelona.
When we walked into the building, you will be amazed by the architecture and design and the idea of creating this by Antoni Gaudi. Even the small details like the words at the main door, the spiral staircases, the colourful glasses, the ceiling, the pillars and so many more.
We don’t want to tell you everything about Sagrada Familia as you need to go there to explore and discover this magic and masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi. We are not a big fan of church building but this is different, this is art.
Make sure you visit the basement as there are lots of information on the building there. If you follow the guided tour, it should lead you to the basement of Sagrada Familia.
There could be many people in Sagrada Familia and please take care of your belongings. Pick pockets are common in Barcelona so be vigilant. Beware of people selling things to you or strangers asking for directions and take care of your surrounding when you are playing with your phone.
