Sagrada Familia tickets: price guide

Full-price fast-track tickets with audioguide: €26

  • Visiting the inside of the basilica is an absolute must.

Sagrada Familia receives no public funding, so maintenance and ongoing construction work is financed exclusively through donations and ticket sales.

It isn’t cheap, but you, along with over 3 million other visitors each year, will be helping to ensure that Gaudì’s masterpiece will actually be finished one day – something which is seeming increasingly probable!

  • Tickets are only valid for the day and time selected at booking. If you arrive late, your ticket will be worthless!
  • Fast-track tickets also give access to the museum, both façades, the schools and the cloister at Sagrada Familia, and you can stay for as long as you like.

Sagrada familia fast-track tickets and reductions


  • Students: €15
  • Under-30s: €15 euros
  • Over-65s: €14
  • Disabled visitors and carers: free
  • Under-11s: free

Sagrada Familia prices: fast-track entry + audio guide: 25 euros

This option is listed as “audio tour” on the Sagrada Familia website.

Sagrada Familia prices: fast-track entry + audio guide + access to one of the towers: 32€

  • The audio guide does not cover the towers.

Both towers have lift access. The Nativity Tower (torre del naixement), 55 metres high, is the oldest and was constructed during Gaudí’s lifetime. The Passion Tower (torre de la passió) is 75 metres high, and is more recent. We recommend the second option as the views are more impressive.

  • The lift takes you up the tower, but you’ll have to come down on foot, via a spiral staircase with around 400 steps.
  • Not recommended for the elderly, those with mobility issues and those with breathing difficulties.
  • No access for children under the age of 6 or for unaccompanied children under the age of 16.

  • Note: the Sagrada Familia website offers a combined entry ticket entitled “Gaudì’s Work and Life” for 27 euros, giving access to the basilica and to the Casa Museu de Gaudí at Parc Güell. This does not include entry to Parc Güell.

You can buy the tickets on the official website of the Sagrada Familia.

Free entry to Sagrada Familia

  • Entry is free for under-11s, but tickets must be booked at the same time as adult tickets and must be presented on arrival.
  • Visitors with a severe disability also benefit from free entry for themselves and a care assistant.

Buy your Sagrada Familia ticket at the ticket office: not a good idea!

We do not recommend to buy your tickets at the Sagrada Familia ticket office for 2 reasons:

You will pay more

  • The Sagrada Familia tickets cost about 3 euros more if you buy them at the ticket office than if you buy them online.

  • However, they are free for children under 11, disabled people and their companion.

You will have to queue

The Sagrada Familia is very much visited throughout the year and the queues are often very long, especially in the high season!

  1. Avatar Jenny says:

    I booked a tour for 5 of us with Jose in September when we were docked at Barcelona for a day on a cruise. Jose had always responded quickly to my emails prior to this in arranging the tour. I was anxious about transport as am a fulltime wheelchair user, but Jose ensured that there were accessible taxis for us when needed throughout the day. He even early at the port to meet us. Jose was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Barcelona and we had a great tour starting at the breathtaking Sagrada Familia where he ensured we avoided all queues, then onto Passeig de Gracia to Las Ramblas and the gothic Quarter – and much more! I highly recommend Jose if you are looking to organise a tour in this beautiful city.
