As we mentioned before, this tour is dedicated to the single most important site in Barcelona, and maybe in the world: the Sagrada Familia, unfinished temple of the genius architect Antoni Gaudi, who dedicated the latter part of his life to this work.
The expiatory church of La Sagrada Familia is a work on a grand scale which was begun on 19 March 1882 from a project by the diocesan architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). At the end of 1883 Gaudi was commissioned to carry on the works, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea.
The building is in the centre of Barcelona, and over the years it has become one of the most universal signs of identity of the city and the country. It is visited by millions of people every year and many more study its architectural and religious content.
It has always been an expiatory church, which means that since the outset, 131 years ago now, it has been built from donations. Gaudi himself said: "The expiatory church of La Sagrada Familia is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people." The building is still going on and could be finished some time in the first third of the 21st century.
Passeig de Gracia:
This broad elegant avenue was built for and by the wealthy Barcelonians and they have never left; luxury and design shops line the street along with major banks and the stock exchange. Architectural details include modernist lampposts and Gaudi’s tiles for pavements and a myriad of grand buildings including two of Gaudi’s houses: Casa Batllo and Casa Mila-La Pedrera.
Sagrada Familia guided tour:
The jewel in the crown of Gaudi’s works, the temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture. The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudi wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.
Tour members can stay on and savour the building for as long as they like. You can go up the towers by elevator, and visit the crypt and museum and compare the contrasting styles of the Birth and Passion facades.
