Sagrada Familia - Front

Gaudí, a mysterious and deeply religious man, worked on the Sagrada Familia with even greater determination than his previous works. After accepting the challenge of building the cathedral, he would spend the rest of his life working on it.

During the last years of his life, Gaudí lived in one of the small spaces inside the Sagrada Familia so that he could spend as much time there as possible. He wanted to finish the construction of the Cathedral during his lifetime but that proved to be impossible. Today, more than 80 years after Gaudi's death, it's still not finished and experts claim that they need at least 20 more years to finish it.

La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona's second largest cathedral is a structure of incredible dimensions. Designed as the shape of a Latin cross, with five hubs and three facades. The temple is most famous for its slender towers that rise nearly 100 meters above ground and with pinnacles decorated with ceramics.

The spires of the Cathedral combine modernism with Gothic architecture in a spectacular way. But the most spectacular part of the Cathedral is yet to be built; a huge dome stretching nearly 170 meters above ground!

Gaudi was only 31 years old when he began working on the Sagrada Familia. He let his imagination run free in designing the cathedral and left behind a beautiful building.
