Sagrada Familia Crypt

The Sagrada Familia crypt is where Antoni Gaudi, the creator of Sagrada Familia, rests in peace.

In the crypt, you’ll find four chapels dedicated to:

  • Virgin of El Carmen 
  • The Virgin of Montserrat
  • Christ
  • Christ on the Cross

You can enter the crypt through the Nativity Facade on Carrer de la Marina.

You can access Sagrada Familia’s crypt in two ways— attending mass or during its limited opening hours.

You can attend the regular mass at 9 am and 8.15 pm on weekdays or special masses at variable times.

Attending the mass is free, but you must reach early to occupy the limited seating.

You can access the mass calendar to know when the mass is taking place on the day of your visit.

The limited opening hours to visit the Sagrada Familia crypt are:

Monday to Friday: 9 am to 10 am, 6 pm to 9 pm 

Saturday, Sunday, and public holidays: 9 am to 2 pm, 6 pm to 9 pm

Once inside, look up to find the arches illustrating the Annunciation to Mary and below to capture a Roman mosaic design.

However, the beauty of the crypt can only be captured in memory since photography and videography are not allowed.
