Inside the Sagrada Familia

You have to buy tickets to go inside the Sagrada Familia. Entries are timed to control the crowd. I am Catholic so I did wonder if, or how often, mass is said. Pretty often as it turns out.


The space is massive and filled with colored light. You find yourself looking up, a lot.


This space is about light and color. The shapes feel organic and alive, and amazingly modern.








We also went up into one of the spires. That’s for tomorrow.

  1. Thank you, Becky. I’ve been there several times and have yet to see it without scaffolding! I had heard that it was gone.


  2. Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures! Your photography is wonderful. It gives me chills to see the inside of the Church. Maybe some year I can attend mass there.


  3. I would love to go to mass there. We were there in 2006 and the interior was still filled with lots of scaffolding, and was not yet being used to celebrate mass. It is spectacular! A few years ago, 60 Minutes did a segment on Sagrada Familia when Pope Benedict was there for the dedication mass. You could probably look it up on the 60 Minutes site, or maybe on You Tube..


  4. Interesting the way the red stain glass windows get lighter and lighter with each row…. and I am sure there are many other interesting items as well.


  5. My husband and I were in Barcelona a year ago. I loved reliving our trip through your diary and pictures. We visited all the places you did. Thanks.


  6. Those photos are absolutely beautiful. Of course it’s a beautiful subject. I’d love to see this in person. Maybe some day!
