Sagarada Familia is probably the most famous example of the renowned architecture from the mind of Antoni Gaudi. Much of the Catalan’s breathtaking work forms part of the uniquely brilliant skyline of Barcelona and Sagarada Familia is the jewel in this particularly glittering crown. It’s a visit that should live long in the memory, provided you stay safe and avoid accidents and injuries on holiday.
Surviving Sagarada Familia – slips, trips and falls
It is testament to the church’s splendour that, though it was never completed, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, this rich history can also pose numerous threats to public safety in the modern day.
Come the day of your visit to Sagarada Familia, what you wear on your feet can go a long way to ensuring you stay free of injuries on holiday. Getting the most out of your visit to Sagarada Familia involves considerable amounts of walking. Therefore, you need to ensure you are wearing sensible shoes which offer both good grip and strong support.
Whilst lifts are available to take you up, the descent must be made on foot. Spiral staircases within the towers require particular care and attention to prevent your trip from becoming marred by a trip or fall accident.
Surviving Sagarada Familia – getting there
Driving in a foreign country, particularly in a city as busy and bustling as Barcelona, can be an intimidating and worrying time. If you are concerned about suffering injuries on holiday after being involved in an accident on the road, then it is probably best to leave the car altogether. Instead, take the metro or even the bus, which can take you almost to the door of this magnificent building.
Surviving Sagarada Familia – other safety tips
Bags and backpacks have to be left in secure lockers so plan what and when you are going to eat and drink accordingly, especially if you have small children who are unlikely to cope in hot weather for long without refreshment.
Also, as you would in any popular tourist spot, keep any valuables you have safe and well hidden.
