Barcelona Photo Gallery - Temple de la Sagrada Familia:
Sagrada Familia - one of the most enigmatic symbols of Barcelona's skyline.  The unfinished Temple of the Sacred Family.  Construction was begun in 1882 by the architects Martorell and De Villar.  In 1891 Gaudi took over the project, which is still incomplete, due to his death in 1926.  Construction continues and your donation on entry pays towards this work.
I did make a joke that its the first time I've paid to visit a Spanish construction site, but really, the visit was completely worthwhile and fascinating.  The building, even in its current state, is totally awe-inspiring.  I am really looking forward to seeing the completed temple.  The photos give an idea of some aspects of the facade and interior.  For more information and the full history of this fascinating building, visit the following website:
You can become a friend of the Temple by paying an annual fee towards the construction of the Temple, you will then have unlimited free access to the building, plus other benefits, including a discount at the gift shop.
