Sagrada Familia Tour: An Inspiring Pre-Conference Event for BAMC2023 Delegates
The Sagrada Família, one of the most visited monuments in Spain, is an iconic symbol of Barcelona and embodies the city's creative and progressive spirit. The basilica's inception traces back to 1882, with architect Antoni Gaudí taking the reins in 1883 and radically transforming the project with his unique vision and unparalleled architectural language. Although still incomplete, Sagrada Familia stands as an emblem of human ingenuity and persistence. The basilica's significance extends beyond its design; it encapsulates Catalonia's rich cultural history and religious heritage. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a testament to Barcelona's role as a pioneering force in modernist architecture, with Gaudí's revolutionary approach setting a precedent for future architectural endeavours worldwide.

Immerse Yourself in Gaudí's Unfinished Masterpiece

Our tour of the Sagrada Família offers you the chance to experience firsthand the grandeur and intricacies of this architectural marvel. You'll get up close to the basilica's towering façades - the Nativity, Passion, and Glory - each narrating a unique biblical story through an array of meticulously crafted sculptures. The highlight of the interior is perhaps the stunning stained glass windows. As the sunlight filters through these vibrant windows, it bathes the basilica in a breathtaking play of light and colours, creating an ethereal atmosphere. The tour will also take you through the Sagrada Família Museum, where you'll delve deeper into Gaudí's life, his inspirations, and the basilica's ongoing construction.
