Impressive Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia (or Saint Family) is the church situated in the Capital of Catalonia, Barcelona. Its second architect was Antoni Gaudi, who also designed Casa Mila (La Pedrera) in Barcelona, too. He had always wished to build such a church, and his dream came true when he was asked to overtake architect’s Francisco del Villar project. Gaudi added gothic structures and chimney-like towers. This style was to be replaced by Gaudi’s modernist vision, which was based on shapes found in nature. The last version of the project measured 95 metres length and 60 metres width, with enough space for 13.000 people.

After Gaudi‘s death, building La Sagrada Familia was difficult because of the lack of funds and the civil war. When it is ready, the cathedral will have 18 belfries, 4 on each sidde of the facade, between 90 and 120 metres. Sagrada Familia is due to be finished in year 2026, that is exactly 100 years after Gaudi‘s death. In order to visit the basilica, visitors have to pay 8€ entrance fee to climb the stairs and visit the musem or 2€ more two go up by elevator till the top. If you belong to a group of more than 20 members, than the entry with a free tour is 5€. Visitors can spend hours seeing the walls and studying the modern architecture of the basilica in Barcelona. Those visitors who want to go up in the tower, need to go about 350 stairs, so those who suffer from claustrophobia are adivsed not to take this risk.
