Owner description: The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a monumental church devoted to the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Construction began in 1882, based on plans drawn up by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, and Antoni Gaudi was commissioned to continue the project in 1883. The Temple has always been an expiatory church, built only from donations. As Gaudi said: "The Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people." In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated the site as a minor basilica.

A must see when visiting Barcelona. The history surrounding this marvel is breath taking. The vision of the original architects all the way to present is unbelievable. This place requires a least a few hours to really appreciate the detail of the this three dimensional masterpiece.

No need to review this iconic building. For sure if you visit Barcelona this is on top of your itinerary. Just wanted to remind everyone that one need reservations to enter the building. We were lucky that we still could see the inside at the last hours of our 3 day stay. As it was sold out for all the time before. Can be done online or at any tourist station.
