SAGRADA FAMILIA




The expiatory church of La Sagrada Família is a work 
on a grand scale which was begun on 19 March 1882 
from a project by the diocesan architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). 

At the end of 1883 Gaudí was commissioned to carry on the works, 
a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. 
Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea. 

The building is in the centre of Barcelona, and over the years 
it has become one of the most universal signs of identity of the city and the country.

  3. Hi! Brathtakingly beautiful! I visited this church a few years ago. Your photo is perfect. Gaudi is very famous in our country too. His unfortunate death and this endless construction would make us very impressive. Thanks for sharing.
