Peak season vs Low season

Peak Season: May - September

Low Season: November - February

Visiting Sagrada Familia during the peak season means you'll experience longer lines and wait times to enter the landmark, with the possibility of crowded interiors. Additionally, ticket prices may be higher during this time due to increased demand. In contrast, visiting during the low season offers the advantage of shorter queues, and a quieter and more peaceful atmosphere inside the basilica. However, you may need to deal with cooler temperatures and shorter daylight hours during the winter months.
