Frequently asked questions

1. Why is the Sagrada Familia such a popular destination for visitors to Barcelona?
The Sagrada Familia is a favourite destination for people from all over the world visiting the beautiful and lively city of Barcelona. In fact, over three million visitors each year make their way to this spectacular building. One reason is the architecture itself, the work of 43 years by iconic Catalonian architect Antoni Gaudi. The project is actually left unfinished as Gaudi died in 1926 while still working on the Sagrada Familia.
2. Can we attend a worship service in the Basilica?
The Sagrada Familia is primarily a place of worship, and services are ongoing and open to the public. The Archdiocese of Barcelona holds an international mass at the Basilica of the Sagrada Família every Sunday and on holy days of obligation. If you have a large party (over 25 persons), you need to contact the staff in advance. On the General Tour, there is time for prayer and reflection in the ambulatory of the Basilica.
3. How is the Gaudi House Museum connected to the Sagrada Familia?
The Gaudi House Museum is owned and maintained by the Construction Board of La Sagrada Familia Foundation, an organisation whose goal is to educate the public about the life and work of the famous Catalonian architect. Now a museum featuring furniture and items from the time Gaudi lived there, the building was designed by Francesc d’Assís Berenguer i Mestres, the architect's friend and assistant.
4. What is the significance of the Nativity Facade?
Gaudi's impressively intricate design of the outside of the building was meant as a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is inspired by gospels describing the childhood of Jesus. These detailed descriptions include the Portal of Faith, the Portal of Hope, the Portal of Charity, and the Bell Towers. Information is available at the Basilica and on the Sagrada Familia website.

Must know before you go

The structure of the inside of the Basilicas
The Sagrada Familia is primarily a place of worship, although it has become an attraction for visitors of many faiths fascinated by Gaudi's work. The church has a central nave flanked by four aisles and transepts with a central nave flanked by two aisles – creating the shape of a Latin cross. The basilica also has three monumental facades, each one representing one of the three crucial events of Christ’s life and ministry.
Attending mass
People of all faiths are welcome to attend the Catholic Mass held in the Basilica. It is expected that all will dress modestly and appropriately for a worship service and behave respectfully during the mass. The Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's expression of the Christian faith, especially the beliefs of Roman Catholicism. Attending a service is a meaningful way of those of other faiths to observe the rituals and understand more about what Christians believe.
Gaudi Avenue
Just outside the Sagrada Familia is Gaudi Avenue, a pleasant city street featuring all kinds of shops and restaurants. Plan some time to stroll up and down the avenue and stop in for the fabulous tapas on offer or a cold glass of Catalan sangria. Shoppers will find plenty of up-scale shops and souvenirs. The avenue ends at another famous modernist structure, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.
