La Sagrada Família Church is one of the most spectacular and most visited sights in Barcelona. A must see and one of the best places to see in Barcelona.

It is Antoni Gaudi's most important, biggest and world famous surrealist masterpiece and his largest project. The Basilica of the Holy Family (Templo de la Sagrada Familia) is its full name.

The construction of the church began in 1882 and it is still ongoing. Its 100 meters long towers form the silhouette of the city.

Gaudi dedicated more than 40 years of his life for La Sagrada Familia from 1883 to his unexpected death in 1926. It's been said that "Barcelona will be known for this temple".

Gaudi began the four towers (Nativity façade) with an amazing gospel in stone and ceramics. But he has only been able to see one of them. The construction of the church is still ongoing today.

The final project includes the eight towers which is the tallest rising to a height of about 170 meters. A visit to La Sagrada Familia is one of the best
things to do in Barcelona.
