Mass at Sagrada Familia



It is possible to attend mass at la Sagrada Familia. ( Because of the COVID-19 it is still not possible to attend mass at Sagrada Familia)

The Main Altar at Sagrada Familia was consecrated on November 7th, 2010 by Pope Benedict. Since then, many religious celebrations are taking place at the Church in two different locations, the Main Altar, and the Crypt.

In this video, you can see the moment when Pope Benedict opens the Main entrance door, and the world discovers the inside of the central nave. 6.500 faithful people together with 1,100 Concelebrants and 800 choir signers!!!

Do not skip the video; it is quite astonishing.

The celebrations at the Main Altar and Crypt have different schedules giving you many options to attend mass during your stay in Barcelona.
