Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Due to the popularity of La Sagrada Familia it is becoming extremely difficult to guarantee entry inside. If by chance the tickets cannot be secured, we will include an inside visit to Casa Batlló, the famous house remodelled by Antoni Gaudi. We will still visit La Sagrada Familia, with a full guided tour outside the structure. Status of the entrance will not be know until the start of our departure and will be advised locally by our Tour Director.

As of 01 March 2020 the Alhambra Palace is introducing new regulations to their booking system, which in turn is creating difficulties in securing entrance to the grounds. The type of entrance into Alhambra Palace varies and full access is not guaranteed. If we are unable to secure entrance to the site at all, we will substitute this with another inclusion.
