- La Sagrada Familia Basilica: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, WE RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE TICKETS IN ADVANCE THROUGH MY TRIP. ‘The Holy Family’ basilica offers one of the most exciting experiences in Spain. Something different, impossible to find anywhere else, a living element that evolves as it is built, together with the feelings of those who visit it and know it in depth. A complex architectural project, a world heritage site, on whose exterior stand 18 towers more than 100 meters high; its three thematic facades where Life, Death and Glory are represented by innumerable statues and symbologies based on nature and the Gospels; an interior space that allows the spiritual communion of those who enter, transformed by Gaudí to a Mediterranean forest in which the light filters with different tonalities through its stained glass windows, bathing the inclined columns, branched like trees.
