The central tower rises 170 m (558 ft) above the transept, with 17 other towers of 100 m (328 ft) or more. Visitors have access to the nave, crypt, museum, shop, and two towers.

Basilica of the Sagrada Familia Reviews
Fabulous weird and wonderful. We loved the fruit at the top of the towers and roof. We also liked the forest inside the basilica. more »
I was absolutely blown away but the beauty and uniqueness of the Sagrada Família. It brought tears to my eyes upon entering the cathedral because I have never seen anything quite like it. It is truly.... more »
Wonderful building. Definitely take audio guide because you will miss a lot of details there. Visit to the towers is also great. In my case, I have visited Nativity facade tower since you can choose only one. Staircase is really narrow and a bit scary. But it is definitely worth it. The view is marvelous. If you decide not to go on towers definitely take audio guide.
This place is, in a word, breathtaking! The audio tour is worth it if you want to get a more detailed description of the different areas. As soon as you get in and look up you are overcome by the sheer magnitude of imagination and creativity. It is just stunning and so precise. The artist intended for this to be like a big forest and every detail is just in the right place. It is a welcome sight to see that construction is actively going on and scheduled to complete. Catalonia's should be proud of this marvel!
