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 for 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.
