Gaudi Barcelona Basilica

Gaudi's Basilica: Almost Finished After 132 Years --

132 years later, Barcelona's fantastical Sagrada Familia is approaching the last stage of its construction.



One of the longest construction projects in the world that continues to this day is a church in Barcelona, Spain - the Sagrada Familia. With Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia as its official name, the construction of the basilica began in 1882 and is still being completed to this moment. Considered to be a very ambitious project of the architect Antoni Gaudi, the Sagrada Familia is brimming with religious symbols and meanings as conceived by Josep Bocabella, a Catalan publisher. Gaudi was not the original architect commissioned for the project but upon his involvement, he completely redesigned the plan. Because of the very intricate but slow pace of the project, people began inquiring about it where he replied, "My client is not in a hurry." However, Gaudi died on 1926 in an accident and the project was continued by Domenech Sugranyes until the Spanish Civil War interrupted the construction. The project resumed in the 1950s and is directed by Mark Burry as the executive architect at present. The projected completion of the church is on the year 2026.
