Which Tower Is Best to Visit at the Sagrada Família?

Antoni Gaudí's most ambitious project is still unfinished almost a century after his death. Only 2 of the stunning Sagrada Família's trinity of towers are complete and open to the public ─ the Nativity façade and Passion façade. Which is most worth the visit?

Architecture

Architecture

Gaudí fans will find his influence most striking in the vibrant Nativity tower. The Passion tower is less ornate, possessing a more earnest Gothic charm.

Religion

Religion

As the names suggest, each tower is religiously symbolic. The joyous Nativity faces the sunrise away from the Passion's starving, skeletal form.

View

View

The Passion tower is the taller of the two. Unfortunately the Nativity tower opens too late to catch the sunrise, but its view is more diverse, if less spectacular.

Access

Access

Both towers have elevators to the top, if you don't have the legs for stairs, but be warned - only the Passion tower has an elevator back down again!

Crowds

Crowds

The Nativity tower is generally less busy as no groups are allowed up. However, if you really don't like crowds, stay outside and see the building illuminated at night instead!

Our insider tips

How to Get There?

The simplest way to get to the Sagrada Família is by metro. Hop off at the conveniently named Sagrada Família metro stop!

When to Visit?

The Sagrada Família is always crowded, but the queues will be at their shortest in the early morning or late afternoon, when the sunlight's at its most magical anyway!

Buying Tickets

If you're not buying tickets in advance, then prepare to queue for hours! They're easily available online and prices differ depending on which parts you want to access and whether or not you want to include an audio guide or tour. Tickets have a 1-hour admission window, but once inside you can stay until closing time.

How Much Time?

You could easily while away 3 or 4 hours at the Sagrada Família, although you can do it in half that if you have a busy itinerary. Just make sure you book tickets in advance!

Informative guide but group size made hearing difficult before the out

Amazing attraction. Good value but it should be made clear that group may be up to 30. Impossible for everyone to hear when the guide is speaking in the middle of hundreds of people. Once we were inside and radios provided it was much better though guide did not realise how to position his lapel microphone to maximise acoustics. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly which made the tour worthwhile. There was no mention that we had to check in and receive another ticket at the meeting point. This would have been helpful to know as would being told the name of the check in point rather than an address as it was not clear from online booking that there was a requirement to enter a tour booking shop to check in.

Fast-Track Guided Tour: Sagrada Familia with Towers Reviewed by

It was a transcendental experience, regardless of religion.

The Fast Track provided a quick entrance and the audio guide was succinct and informative. The crowds were manageable and there was space to stand back and take in the experience at a leisurely pace, as well as take pictures/videos. The art and architecture were inspiring. The amount of collaboration, from different fields, eras and technological advances, to see to fruition the vision laid out by one man is astounding. We’re planning to go back after the scheduled completion in 2026.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining.

Seeing Sagrada Familia was a dream come true for me and it was the highlight of my trip to Spain. Antonio Gaudi is also one of my most loved architects, so it was a very emotional experience for me to see his works up close and personal. I can not wait to return one day soon.

An extremely well managed tour, very informative

Our guide was outstanding. Very patient with a marvellous knowledge of the Sagrada Familia. She explained many features which I had seen on previous visits but hadn’t fully understood it greatly added to my enjoyment and education.
