Sagrada Familia, Barcelona Photos

Templo de la Sagrada Familia (Holy Family Basilica) (started 1882 by Antoni Gau) was redesigned in 1883 by Antoni Gaudí who worked on it until he died 1926 after being run down by a tram. After Gaudi's death the construction of Sagrada Familia continued under others, most notably Josep Maria Subirachs. There were interruptions and setbacks such as fires during the Spanish Civil War. Sagrada Familia is now one of the most visited sites in Barcelona, given its unique design. Sagrada Familia is still under construction though its interior was consecrated in 2010.
