The Sagrada Familia, the unfinished work of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, is surely the most emblematic building in Barcelona and one of the best-known examples of Catalan modernism.
In 2017, the Sagrada Familia was the most visited place of interest in Spain, with more than 4,500,000 visitors from all over the world. In 2005, the facade of the Nativity and the crypt of the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia were declared a World Heritage Site, together with other works by Gaudí, such as Casa Vicens and Casa Batlló.
This exceptional temple was a project promoted by and for the people, and five generations have seen the evolution of the building in Barcelona. Currently, with more than 135 years since the laying of the first stone, the Basilica is still under construction and it is planned to be finished in 2026.
