La Sagrada Familia: a magnificent and breath-taking monument


Landmark of the city, the illustrious building is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Sagrada Familia, or Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, in Catalan, is one of the legendary unfinished masterpieces of the famous artist Antoni Gaudí. Its majestic towers can be spotted from any point in the city.

This basilica is the emblem of the city and one of the best-known examples of Catalan modernism. With its sublime and meticulous architecture and its many traditional symbols, this building is the architect's mystical poem. A temple of atonement, the work is financed exclusively through almsgiving, which explains why it was not possible to construct the different parts of the monument at the same time.

However, since the 1990s, the influx of visitors and the worldwide renown of the work have changed the economic situation. Dont hesitate to climb to the top to enjoy the exceptional views of Barcelona.
