"Visit the Expiatory Temple of..." Sagrada Família Tip by sheryl_tan

Sagrada Família, Barcelona: 50 reviews and 56 photos


Favorite thing: Visit the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, or otherwise simply Sagrada Familia.

Fondest memory: Your visit to Barcelona is not complete without a visit to the Sagrada Familia church. The church was the work of the great architect, Antonio Gaudi. He started this project in 1882 and continued working on it for more than 40 years, until his death in 1926. Even today, the church is still under construction. Following the idea of an Expiatory Temple, the church has been financed by private donations. In the beginnings, Guadi was the main financer for his own project. To this day, this practice is still being followed, thanks to the contributions received from the faithful and admirers of his work.
