It is possible to attend mass at la Sagrada Familia free of charge
First of all, and to avoid any misunderstandings, we would like to clarify that there are two altars at the Sagrada Familia church: The Main Altar and the Crypt Altar. Which means two different places where you can attend mass. In this post, we offer you very handy information so that you can organize your visit.
MASS AT SAGRADA FAMILIA MAIN ALTAR
We guess that this is the altar you are interested in, it is the one inside the main church. When attending mass at the Main Altar you´ll have the chance to enjoy the beauty of this masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi.
Mass at Sagrada Familia Main Altar takes place on Sundays at 9 AM. That’s the starting time, but you need to show up at least 45 minutes before, otherwise, the church could be already full. It is an international Mass celebrated in several languages and the access is for free.
Here we would like to share the information posted at the Sagrada Familia web:
” The Archdiocese of Barcelona holds an international mass at the Basilica of the Sagrada Família on Saturdays, Sundays, holy days of obligation and the eve of holy days of obligation.
Date and time:
Every Saturday and on the eve of holy days of obligation at 8 pm.
Every Sunday and on holy days of obligation at 9 am
There is no charge for attending mass, but capacity is limited.
The entrance to the Basilica is on the Nativity façade (Carrer de la Marina) from 8:30 am for morning masses and from 7:30 pm for evening masses, until capacity is reached.
Visitors are asked to dress appropriately and behave respectfully.
For any other questions regarding the international masses, please contact the liturgical head of masses at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
