Visiting the Sagrada Família

Hello! Hi! Hope you all are well. I am still blogging about our trip to Barcelona because we simply took too many photos and experienced so many things!

Today is all about a very special experience Nicolas and I shared – visiting the Basílica de la Sagrada Família. If you are unaware of this incredibly breathtaking temple and its history, I definitely suggest reading up on it. It has such an amazing story. Construction of Sagrada Família began way back in 1882 in an effort to build a temple in honor of the Holy Family. The famous artist Antoni Gaudí took over the project in 1883 and put his entire heart and soul into it until his death in 1926. Since then, many others have continued to oversee the construction of Sagrada Família. However, the project still remains unfinished! About 70% of the church is completed, and it is hoped to be done by 2026. The fact that this temple is taking over 140 years to complete sounds crazy, but when you see how massive and detailed the entire church is, it is easy to understand.

Below are some of our favorite photos of Sagrada Família. We were fortunate enough to get tickets to tour the inside as well! Words cannot even begin to describe how beautiful it is, so enjoy the photos!

 

I hope you enjoyed another travel post, and I wish you all a great weekend!

    What a sight to behold! It’s crazy to think that as beautiful as it is, after all these years it’s still unfinished. What an experience to see it in person. I am interested in reading up on it’s history. It’s absolutely beautiful! xo
