The Expiatory church of La Sagrada Familia is Barcleona’s most iconic monumental building, and the masterwork of architect Antoni Gaudí.
For some, it is the foremost exponent of Catalan Modernism, while for others, its highly personal style cannot be classified. The Sagrada Familia is a Catholic basilica that was begun in 1882. The building work still remains unfinished. Of all Gaudí’s works in Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia is the finest example of his own idea of art.It is “total” architecture, in which structure, ornament, symbolism, mysticism and nature stand side by side, to create a highly complex and exuberantly elaborate structure that is clearly devoted to religion. +info

Furthermore, it was to be the foundation stone for the monumental city of Santiago de Compostela, which was born in a sacred wood at the very ends of the earth, and was to become a Holy City and a World Heritage Site. +info
