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.”

Architectural History of the Sagrada Familia

The history of the Sagrada Familia began with Josep Maria Bocabella's idea of building something to honor the "Holy Family." Later in 1881, Bocabella bought a 12,800 m² construction site in the city district of Eixample. Under the direction of the first architect, Francesc de Paula del Villar, the laying of the foundation stone of the Sagrada Familia was in 1882. Due to difficulties and conflicts, Antoni Gaudí took over the leadership of the Sagrada Familia’s construction in 1883. In 1885, Gaudí created a new overall concept, which later resulted in the imposing Sagrada Familia with its 18 towers that we see today. For 43 years, he worked on this master piece until anaccident ended his life in 1926. The construction of the Sagrada Familia was then postponed until it was restarted again in 1950. Gaudí's ideas were later used by other architects like Francesc Quintana, Isidre Puig Boada and Lluís Gar. The interior of the Sagrada Familia was completed in 2010 and was also consecrated by Pope Benedikt XVI and elevated to the status "basilica." At that time, 8 of the 18 towers were also completed. This master work should be fully completed by Gaudí's 100th death anniversary in 2026.
The crypt below the basilica is already finished and and contains the grave of Gaudí and seven further chapels. The entrance to the crypt is located right next to the Sagrada Familia. Visitors can enter the crypta without paying any admission fee. Visiting the crypta after the Sagrada is definitely worth it.
