Basilica De La Sagrada Familia is located in Barcelona, Spain (Also the capital of “Catalunya”
), the magical city by the Mediterranean Sea, known for its beautiful weather, amazing beaches, Picasso’s home town, breath taking architecture works and of course, the great FC Barcelona and Leo Messi.
The master piece is still and will be under construction until at least 2022. This is the reason why you can see all the familiar faces you can see in any construction site, including cranes, safety banners, and of course fences surrounding the working area of the temple to guarantee the safety of the visitors.
Was it due to the amazing art work and design? Maybe there was no schedule from the beginning of the project? Not enough money to finish the project? Those are all valid reasons behind the 135 years that the project took so far to reach only about 70% of the final product. But why would the design take that long to be executed?
The temple dedicated to the Holy family was designed by Antoni Gaudi -another reason to visit Barcelona- who took charge after a disagreement between the original designer Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano. Antoni was creative and crazy enough to decide to write the whole bible on the walls of the Basilica, and instead of following the old Neo-gothic style, Gaudi decided that the design will be based on traditions of Gothic and Byzantine cathedrals, and as originally planned, building La Sagrada Familia is totally funded by donations.
The moment you enter the Basilica, and if you felt that you paid a lot of money for a 10-15 minutes’ walk inside the temple, you are so far away from having finished and enjoyed the visit to the amazing temple, there is a huge underground museum telling the history and the science behind the Basilica.
