La Sagrada Familia

My guide Last update 1 year ago
© Basilica de la Sagrada Famlia Pep Daud
The unfinished basilica designed by Antoni Gaudi remains the most eye-catching building in Barcelona and is a must-see during your visit to Barcelona! Its construction began in 1884. The facades symbolize birth (west), life and death (east) and the Transfiguration of Christ (south), while the eight towers symbolize the apostles. There are three entrances in the facade (faith, hope and love). Gaudi's grave can be found in the crypt, resting in the place where he worked for the last sixteen years of his life. At the time of his death only the west facade had been completed. Construction was halted in 1930 and resumed in 1952, but Gaudi had left no final design behind.
