Where is the Sagrada Familia located?
The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is located in l’Eixample (or Ensanche district), next to the districts of Gràcia, Horta-Guinardó and Sant Martí. Specifically, it is located in the neighborhood whose name is given by the same temple: Sagrada Familia.
This neighborhood is full of passages, small streets with a lot of charm (some of them dead ends), small houses and a myriad of old workshops, something that contrasts greatly with the way of life, the hustle and bustle and the style that usually predominates in the city. from Barcelona.
The Sagrada Familia temple is located between Provença, Sardenya, Mallorca and Marina streets, and on its sides you can find Gaudí Square and Sagrada Familia Square, two very iconic places in the city of Barcelona where you can rest on a bench while having an ice cream or a coffee observing the Basilica.
What you can do near the Sagrada Familia
Visit the Basilica
To begin with, the first thing we are going to recommend you is to visit the Temple of the Sagrada Familia.
You can buy your ticket through the temple’s official website and enjoy a guided tour of its framework, or you can choose to discover it completely free of charge by attending one of the masses held inside.
If you opt for the second option, note that you will miss many details and information about the temple, since you will only see a part of it.
Visit other nearby monuments
If you are one of the people who like to discover more monuments and emblematic architectural buildings of the city you visit, you cannot miss a visit to Casa Batlló or La Pedrera-Casa Milà, located just 15-20 minutes walk from the Sacred Family.
In addition, this year the Casa Batlló has been chosen as the Best Monument in the World 2021, ahead of the Tower of London, the Duomo of Milan or the Empire State Building in New York. It is an honor to be able to visit this monument!
This prize has been awarded for its majesty and beauty, and for the presentation of a new museum proposal based on 2,000 more square meters and two new immersive rooms where you can virtually admire the imagery that inspired its creator, Gaudí, in his childhood.
If you prefer to save time and discover the Barcelona metro, you just have to take the blue line L5 and get off at the Diagonal stop. From there you will only have to walk along Passeig de Gràcia to enjoy the views of these two great monuments by Antoni Gaudí.
