Park Guell to Sagrada Familia

Park Guell and Sagrada Familia in one day

If you manage your time at each attraction well, you can see both Gaudi masterpieces in less than five hours.

Tourists in a hurry are known to finish exploring Park Guell in an hour but for a satisfactory tour, you need at least 90 minutes. 

If you decide to go up one of the Towers, you need at least two hours at Sagrada Familia. If you skip the Towers, you only need 90 minutes. 

Tourists can buy the Gaudi Bundle and explore the attractions themselves, or opt for the guided tour of Sagrada Familia and Park Guell.
