The Sagrada Família is a one-of-a-kind temple, for its origins, foundation and purpose. Fruit of the work of genius architect Antoni Gaudí, the project was promoted by the people for the people. Five generations now have watched the Temple progress in Barcelona. Today, more than 135 years after the laying of the cornerstone, construction continues on the Basilica.
La Sagrada Familia is one of the masterpieces of art and architecture of all time, with great heritage, cultural and religious value. Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) had a great goal: to turn the Basilica into a perfect temple. He conceived it to be the tallest building in the city of Barcelona and to link the earthly with the heavenly.
March 19, 2017 marked the 135th anniversary of the laying of the first stone of the temple. Currently 70% of the construction of the Basilica has been completed.
The starting point of the Sagrada Familia was Gothic architecture, which Gaudí modified and improved, to propose a new architecture and which, due to its originality, makes this temple a unique piece.
The Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia is a church with five naves with a transept of three, which form a Latin cross. At the upper end of the cross is the semicircular apse, which closes the basilica from behind. In addition, the basilica consists of three monumental facades: each one represents one of the three culminating moments in the life of Jesus Christ: his birth (Calle Marina), his passion, death and resurrection (Calle Sardenya), and his glory, present and future (Mallorca street).
Discover the hidden history behind each facade, each tower, each stone ... and enter the temple, let yourself be enveloped by the magic of lights and colors: you will live a unique sensory and emotional experience!
