A photo from my archives: Sagrada Familia

Inside the Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain, 2012.

Most of you will have certainly heard of the Sagrada Familia, or you may have even visited it already.
This masterpiece cathedral – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – was designed by Antoni Gaudi’ and its construction began in 1882. Yet the building is still incomplete.

Its unique neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau style makes it a not-to-miss landmark when visiting Barcelona.
The monumental façades are decorated with hundreds of statues and symbolic figures.  A walk around the cathedral can entertain you for hours.
But the best part is definitely the interior, with its striking vaults (the highest reaching 45m) and columns with various geometric forms. And there is almost a magical feeling thanks to the glow created by the stained glass windows!
