How do online tickets help in avoiding the crowd?

As a tourist trying to enter Sagrada Familia, you must stand in two queues. The line at the ticketing counter to buy the tickets and the line at the Basilica’s entrance. You can avoid the first queue if you buy Sagrada Familia tickets online and reach the entrance at the time provided on your ticket.

In fact, on heavily crowded days (high season weekends, office holidays etc) there may be an extra waiting time as well. Since only a fixed number of tourists are allowed to enter the premises every 15 minutes, the ticket obtained from the ticketing counter can have an entrance time that is a couple of hours later. This means you must wait your turn to enter the Basilica.

That’s why most tourists prefer to buy Sagrada Familia tickets online. When you buy tickets online, you know what time you need to be at Sagrada Familia’s entrance, so there is hardly any wait.

Now you know why these online tickets are also known as Skip The Line tickets, Fast Track tickets, Priority Access tickets etc.
