La Sagrada Família is a towering Roman Catholic church in Barcelona. Designed by Antoni Gaudí, it was designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 1984 and consecrated in 2010. The church is a perpetual work in progress even though construction started back in the 1880s. Funded by tourist receipts, the church is expected to be completed only in 2026, on the hundredth anniversary of Gaudí’s death.
Of all architecture in Barcelona, La Sagrada Família is probably the most polarizing. Like it or loathe it, few visitors remain unmoved after a visit here.
