Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família - the church that has taken more than a hundred years to build - the Awesome World of Things
Sagrada Família is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí became involved in 1883 and used his own architectural and engineering style, which combined Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. At the time of his death less than a quarter of the project was complete. Sagrada Família's construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project's greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí's death.
