Tour description provided by Viator

Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Antoni Gaudi on a Barcelona Super Saver that combines two top-selling tours for a discounted price! With an expert local guide, head past the long entrance lines of La Sagrada Familia with a skip-the-line entrance ticket, and enjoy a walking tour around Gaudi’s famously unfinished church. In the afternoon, enjoy a skip-the-line tour of Park Güell and stroll down Passeig de Gràcia to see Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, two of the artist's most eye-catching creations.
Skip-the-Line La Sagrada Familia Tour (1.5 hours): Meet your guide and walk straight past the long entrance lines, which are often in excess of two hours, to Antoni Gaudi’s Gothic masterpiece: La Sagrada Familia. After skipping the line, set off to explore Barcelona’s attention-grabbing church on a walking tour. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Sagrada Familia is consecrated and was proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. Learn all about its fascinating history from your guide, and hear how Gaudi designed the church’s interior as a Latin cross complete with five aisles. Gaze in admiration at the opulent ornamentation and walk underneath vaults that measure some 230-feet (70-meters) high. Before leaving the church, visit La Sagrada Familia Museum to see drawings, plaster models and pictures about the development of the church since the late 1880s. La Sagrada Familia remains famously unfinished, and the museum also documents information about the construction that is currently underway. The anticipated completion date of the building is 2026: the centennial of Gaudi’s death. Artistic Barcelona Tour with Skip-the-Line Entry to Park Güell (3 hours): Meet your guide outside La Sagrada Familia for your afternoon tour and then wander across to one of Barcelona’s top UNESCO World Heritage sites: Park Güell. Another Gaudi creation, Park Güell is an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the wait lines with your fast-track ticket and head inside to explore with your guide. After visiting Park Güell, stroll down Passeig de Gràcia, the street that’s home to the famous Gaudi creations of Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the buildings were designed as lavish private residences, and pose for photos in front of their facades. Your tour then finishes near Casa Batlló.
