Sagrada Familia

Gaudi’s masterpiece is still under construction. According to a tourist waiting line near us “it’s been under construction for 14 years and still has, like, 14 years to go”. While that sounds extreme, the truth is even more impressive. Construction on the massive church began in 1882, and is expected to be completed in 2026, 100 years after Gaudi’s death.

The detail in the church, both inside and out, is incredible. It is organic and and ordered, curved and pointed, sanitised and colourful. It wouldn’t be impossible to spend hours drinking in every considered element of the building and still find things to be amazed by.
