Your morning begins right at La Sagrada Familia, where you’ll take a moment to admire the building’s dizzying, playful exterior. Skip the long lines already gathered outside and head inside, where you’ll have exclusive access to the cathedral before it has even opened to the public.
Walk down the cathedral’s five aisles that are shaped like a Latin cross and admire the Catalan masterwork from the inside. You can check out the bright stained glass windows and soaring ceilings at your leisure while your guide gives you background on Gaudí’s fascinating architectural inspiration. You’ll hear why construction on the cathedral was begun in 1882 but halted in 1926— and why it remains unfinished. But there’s no rush: you’ll also have time to explore on your own.
With an optional upgrade, you can have exclusive access to the Tower on the Passion facade, where after a short climb you’ll be treated with a spectacular panorama of the city.
