The work continues even with a constant stream of visitors.

The original idea for La Sagrad Familia came from the publisher, Josep Maria Bocadella - he was worried about the development of revolutionary ideas in Barcelona.

Construction began under the supervision of Francesc de Villar in 1882; however he was replaced in 1884 by antoni Gaudi, who was then 31.
