A visit to Barcelona cannot be considered complete without a close look at Antoni Gaudi’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia.
The massive cathedral, in construction since 1880 and still work in progress, will capture you within its walls, and let you marvel at the beauty that you will discover at every angle and surface, spiraling staircases and radiant ceilings, painted in the light that, colored, filters through the several stained windows.
The sculpted facade, true example modernist organic architecture of which Gaudi was a master, will draw your eyes into discovering shapes that emerge from the stone to living creatures seemingly ready to detach.
If you visit Barcelona, definitely visit the Sagrada Familia, possibly also climb up the towers. More pictures after the break.
