Church
“What i like most about this must-see in Barcelona is the exhibition they have in the underground of the cathedral with the models Gaudí created to build it During the summer is necessary to book it in advance if you want to go in, if not it would be almost impossible to get a ticket for the day”

Church
“ The construction of this holy church started on March 19, 1882 and will be officially delivered in 2026 according to the latest data. It is impressive. but especially the interior is spectacular. Because this Holy Church of Gaudi attracts more than 3 million visitors a year, it is almost a must to order "skip the line" tickets before visiting the Sagrada Família. You save disappointments and waiting time.”
