The construction of this unique Temple began in 1882. As you can see, it's still under construction, won't be finished in the next 20 years. At present eight of the twelve bell towers of the facade, dedicated to the Apostles and having a height exceeding 100 metres, are already built. The four belfries yet to be built are those of the Facade of Glory, the 170-metre central dome in honour of Jesus Chris, The Tower of the Virgin Mary (125m) and the Tower of the 4 Evangelists. Wish to go back after it complete.

It's the most popular touristic spot in Barcelona, you will find there is always a long queue at the entrance. Open time: Oct-Mar 9am-18pm, Apr-Sep 9am-20pm, close at Dec.25th, 26th, Jan.1st and the afternoon of 6th.
