  • Skip the long lines to Sagrada Familia on a unique guided tour with Mercè,a born-and-raised Barcelona native
  • Deep dive into the dazzling landmark's story with this local, who is a passionate linguist and Official Guide of Catalonia
  • Discover the many beautiful details that are hidden in the facades, as well as within the interior of this iconic Barcelona landmark

There’s no better way to get to know a place than to go with a local, who’ll answer your every question! This unique experience at the Sagrada Família puts you in the capable, expert hands of local Mercè, a linguist and born-and-raised Barcelona native. This passionate, French-speaking guide will make sure you get a better understanding of the building's history and architectural details, and will tell you all about the exterior and interior of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, the last of Gaudí's masterworks to be constructed.

You'll start your adventure by admiring the outside of this famous basilica, before heading inside to be dazzled by the way light passes through the stained-glass windows. Mercè will explain the life and career of Antoni Gaudí, the genius architect behind the building, and share the history of the basilica's construction. Not only is this tour fun and educational, with Mercè as your guide, you'll come away with a new friend!

Meet your guide: Hi there! My name is Mercè and as a passionate linguist, I studied the intricacies of language and became the official tourist guide for Catalonia in both German and French. My love for exploring new cultures led me to spend six years in Germany and to travel extensively throughout Europe.

But my heart has always belonged to my hometown of Barcelona and, in particular, the awe-inspiring Sagrada Família. Every time I visit, I'm filled with a sense of wonder and excitement that I can't wait to share with others.

As your guide, I'll take you on a journey through the intricacies of this architectural masterpiece. I am personally invested in showing you the true magic of this symbol of Barcelona with sensitivity, respect, and a deep passion for its history and culture.
