The views from the towers of the Sagrada Familia are the cherries on top of the giant cake that is your visit of Gaudí’s (actually rather cake-like!) magnum opus. You will first need to gain entrance into the unfinished cathedral – skip the line by buying advance tickets from the Sagrada Familia website or prepare for long queues! Once inside, a €2.50 fee will give you access to the lifts rising up the towers of the Nativity and Passion facades, from which you can give free rein to your creativity trying to frame the sprawling city through the narrow wall openings.
