Lines tend to get very long to enter La Sagrada Familia, so we recommend a skip-the-line tour.

November also means the Picasso Museum should be less crowded!

If you want to see multiple museums, the Barcelona Card is a great option and includes the Picasso Museum.

If you're looking for something else amazing to see, check out Park Guell. This park has gorgeous mosaics created by Antoni Gaudi and is truly a sight to behold.
