€5 to enter but we only had half an hour before it closed so not enough time. Impressive from the outside. The carvings around the main door are stunning. The attention to detail on the clothing and the women's dresses took someone a long time to do. There is no prayer chapel here. There is a church across the road that has evening prayers.
An amazing place. Such an incredibly beautiful day. Missed the Gaudi museum just by, but will go back some day.
