The Sagrada Familia, which is a Roman-Catholic basilica, is Barcelona's most famous landmark. Its official Catalan name is “Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família" which means "Temple of Atonement of the Holy Family" in English. Construction work began in 1882 and was later lead by Antoni Gaudí in 1883 who introduced the art style of Modernisme into the design of the basilica. The Sagrada Familia became his life's work, in which he continued to build until his death in 1926. The Sagrada Familia is projected to be completed on Gaudí's 100th death anniversary in 2026. The construction of the Sagrada Familia is exclusively financed by donations and funds from foundations and Catholic groups. The Sagrada Familia boasts of unbelievable spatial dimensions, complex embellishments, and magnificent facades & doors- and it should have 18 bell towers by the completion of the construction. On 7 November 7th 2010, Pope Benedikt XVI consecrated the Sagrada Familia and elevated it to the status "basilica.”
