I visited beautiful Barcelona in April 2013 and totally fell in love with the place. I love the tapas, sangria and Gaudi but most of all I loved the La Sagrada Familia. This has to be seen to be believed, although it is unfinished and there are cranes literally everywhere it is a sight to behold.
La Sagrada is a UNESCO world heritage site and was designed by the famous Gaudi. Construction of the La Sagrada Familia church began in 1882 and it is now expected to be finished in 2026 which will be 100 years after Gaudi’s death.
If you think it is impressive from the outside you haven’t seen anything yet! The inside is just so spectacular. After spending about half an hour just looking up at the amazing church we decided to go up it. For the price of €18.50 we went inside and to the top of the La Sagrada Familia and I am so pleased we did we the view was gorgeous over Barcelona.
We caught a lift to the top and walked down via the stairs to get this view. The contrast between the blue ocean from Barceloneta beach and the bright orange views was so interesting and it was really good to see the sprawling city of Barcelona from above. If you are in Barcelona first of all go inside the church and if you can get up to the top as the view really is brilliant!
There is more information on La Sagrada Familia’s website and I would recommend pre booking during peak summer as the lines were very long.
Next weeks ‘View from the top’ comes from Nice in France. The view over the French Riviera town is super spectacular.
