It is possible to attend mass at la Sagrada Familia.
Masses inside the church have resumed since September 5, 2021. They take place every Sunday at 9 a.m.
Nevertheless 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.
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.
Mass at Sagrada Familia takes place on Sundays at 9 AM and it´s free of charge
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.
We would like to share the information posted on the Sagrada Familia web:
” The Archdiocese of Barcelona holds an international mass at the Basilica of the Sagrada Família on Sundays and holy days of obligation and the eve of holy days of obligation.
Date and time:
Every Sunday and on holy days of obligation at 9 am
There is no charge for attending mass, but capacity is limited.
Language: Catalan, Spanish, English, French and Italian
The entrance to the Basilica is on the Nativity façade (Carrer de la Marina) from 8 am until the 500 people 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.”
We would like to remind you that you’ll be attending Mass, this is not a tourist visit to Sagrada Familia, so do not expect to be able to walk around the Church taking pictures. For a tour with the chance to stay inside as long as you want we recommend you to buy tickets or book a PRIVATE TOUR.
