Tickets for Sagrada La Familia

Can anyone recommend a reputable online site to buy tickets for Sagrada la Familia ahead of time? How far in advance shouldI buy them?

Go directly to the website of Sagrada Familia. For a reasonable fee you can join its "family" and get admission via its card.. This will put you at the head of the line, give you a tower visit, and a discount on any purchase in the gift shop. Will take a few weeks to process if mailed to you, or you can get it at the admission booth I think. Best deal I came across..and unlimited access as well if you want to make a second visit...

I bought our tickets at Basilica de la Sagrada Familia site, each tickets was 19.30 Euro for adult, and 17.30 Euro for youth, also you can choose the time at the church and any of 2 Towers. We will go in June 2014 , so the price is recent.

How long should one allot for the church and one tower? When you purchase the tickets at home for a specific time how specific is it? Is it as long as you don't show up before the allotted time. In other words, how flexible are they are the time specified?

@Stan,

I'd allot at least three hours for the Church and one Tower (depending on how much you want to see of course). In addition to appreciating the magnificent Church, you'll probably also want to visit the Museum which is underneath. There's a theatre there which shows a movie describing the construction. With the visit to the Tower, you'll probably find that there's a queue, and even with a guaranteed time slot it will still take some time to get to the elevator and up the tower.

Regarding the times, in my experience they are VERY rigid with those! When I was there last year, I arrived about 15 minutes early for entry to La Sagrada Familia and they wouldn't let me enter until five minutes before the scheduled time. It was the same thing at the tower entry. I didn't find much "flexibility" at all.

I visited the building with a group several years ago...Just a short walk through. On this past visit in September, I sat in the main building for about two hours, just looking, examining and taking in the grandeur of the place. Then to the tower, about three fourths hour, including the wait time for my timed admission. I would do the same again. Watching the sun play on the stain glass windows is amazing.

I would expect all the visit of Sagrada Familia to be a whole morning or a whole afternoon, although you will probably be faster. The problem is that you may find a lot of people and have to do some waitings...
