The first stone of Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona was laid in 1882. It is now entering its final phase of construction and will be completed in 2026, to coincide with the centennial of Gaudí’s death.
With its highest tower at 564 feet, when finished, la Sagrada Familia will be Europe’s tallest religious building.
A video from the Sagrada Familia Foundation’s YouTube channel shows an animation of what this incredible structure will look like in ten years.
