about la sagrada familia

The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (Expiatory Temple of the Holy Family) or more commonly known as  La Sagrada Familia was started by Antoni Gaudi. The mesmerising church in Spain still awaits its completion. 

An insatiable desire took over its first architect as he struggled to build this grand structure. Honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the  La Sagrada Familia sees over a million visitors every year. After the architect's demise, less than half the church was completed, which was further ruined by the anarchist's destruction. Most of his plans saw their end yet after much controversy the construction begun once again. The construction of the church is still on in full swing even after a 100 hundred years, most think the church should be completed between 2020 to 2040.

The La Sagrada Familia is still enveloped in mystery yet its charm is irresistible simply owing to its unforgettable history. The most striking feature being the Interiors and the Apse. The inside gives you an illusion of a tree as sunlight stirs through its branches. Gaudi didn't believe in straight lines and claimed that none existed in nature. The construction of the pillars was inspired by Monserrat, a mountain range close to Barcelona. 

The shape of the awe-inspiring rock formations of the mountain was a framework for the church. A visit to Spain is incomplete without a visit to the surreal  La Sagrada Familia

Gaudi palace! What a marvellous architecture. Mix of Gothic and Art Nouveau. You can also access to the towers with an extra of 4.5 euros, that includes a lift pass. Visitors can access the Nave, Crypt, Museum, Shop, the Passion and Nativity towers. ...... read more
