Unique, the way it’s designed on the inside really is stunning, with the way the light plays with the space. We went during Covid, so it wasn’t packed, not sure if this is normal. Tour isn’t long, but...
The breathtaking Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, on our trip through Spain in 2016. My husband proposed to me during this trip. Cannot wait to travel again and celebrate our wedding anniversary one day in the future. #couplestrip #engagementtrip #spain #barcelona #gorgeous #gaudi #gaudiarchitecture
Among the many attractions in Barcelona, Spain, the Sagrada Familia is the first to be translated into the Holy Family Cathedral. The usual name is the Holy Family. The designer is the world-famous Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi. .
It is a large Roman Catholic church that was built in 1882 and has not been completed yet. It has been more than 100 years old and is said to be completed in 2026. Although it is an unfinished building, it has been listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO. In October this year, an interesting news broke out, which shocked the world because it did not obtain the permit of the Barcelona city government. A fine of 36 million euros (about 280 million yuan) was required and paid in 10 years.
It became a super-destruction in the world heritage.
When I came here, during the January Spring Festival in January 2017, when the weather was relatively cold during the year, the visitors were not particularly crowded, but they also had to line up. If you go, you must remember to make an appointment online in advance, otherwise you have to queue long and long.
The visual impact of this building has been shocked far from the foot, until it comes to it, it feels like a living building, seeing it will think of bones and plants, as well as fairy tales world. The
entrance is divided into two sides, and the team makes an appointment from the east side.
The internal skeleton structure is more singular, and through the colored glass window, the refracted light with color is very beautiful.
There is a big exhibition space behind the church, as well as a souvenir shop
Although it has been built for more than 100 years, the Sagrada Familia has not yet been completed, but its vertical appearance is enough to inspire people's awe. Although it is still a construction site, it attracts 2.6 million visitors every year. The most important recent visitor is Pope Benedict XVI. It is the work that Anthony Gaudi exhausted all his efforts. More than 100 years ago, a conservative group entrusted the mission of building a church to Gaud, hoping to build a sanctuary for Barcelona's sinful atonement with modern development. ## @Spain National Tourism Administration

The Sagrada Familia is a prestigious tourist attraction and landmark in Barcelona. It is a stunning work by the great architect Antoni Gaudí, but was never completed. Donations keep construction going and it is due to be completed by 2026. Construction of the Nativity facade and basement has been taken over by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Climb up one of the tall spires of the church to enjoy a bird's eye view of Barcelona.
