Overview
La Sagrada Familia is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed cathedral designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is now one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, with a line of visitors to match. Beat the crowds on this exclusive tour, which includes access to the cathedral before it opens to the public for a more intimate experience.  Plus, you'll avoid lines often in excess of two hours with a skip-the-line ticket. 
What to Expect
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.

We weren't given a choice. So, I'm not sure which one we actually went up. Whatever it was, it was totally worth it. But, walking down the spiral stairs was certainly not for the faint of heart.

In theory, yes. However, when I went it was a little chilly so I was in trousers and a hoody. My husband was in shorts and a t shirt but also had a hoodie on.
