Sagrada Familia

When Gaudi began work on the Sagrada Familia 1883, he knew he would never live to see its completion. Even today, there is still a decade of work to finish construction.

The cathedral offers an imposing view, even though it is still under construction. When the central spire is completed the cathedral will stand nearly twice as tall as it does today. And yet, somehow, the pictures cannot capture the majesty. You almost get a better sense of just how inspiring it is from the faces of the people looking up in awe.

But just to give you a flavour of what awaits you, here is a brief sampling.

It doesn’t matter how many cathedrals you have visited, you have never seen anything like this. I highly recommend it.
