La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia

Description

Sagrada Familia, is an architectural gem in Barcelona’s sprawling skyline, a reflection of the prodigal Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi’s distinct imagination and style. The sublime beauty of Sagrada Familia transcends the layers of Catalonia’s rich cultural history and in the words of Gaudi himself, “The temple as a whole, as well being a place for divine worship, will artistically represent the truths of religion and the glorification of God and His Saints.”

The ornamental beauty of this towering structure originates from the striking synergy between Christian iconography and Gaudi’s unique form that is inspired by the patterns he found in nature. The colourful stained glass panes that run in harmony with the delicate carvings which adorn the Church’s façade, are a fine example of Art Nouveau and Catalan Noucentisme architecture.

Inspired by the mores of Gothic and Byzantine cathedrals, the foundation stone for Sagrada Familia was laid over a century ago in 1882, and 135 years later, this iconic monument is still a decade away from completion. The complexity of this massive structure lies in its design, and creating this masterpiece to its last detail requires enormous funding, the lack of which, has slowed the realisation of this dream-like structure.
