La Sagrada Família

The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a Roman Catholic basilica designed by Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) and probably the most emblematic of all Barcelona’s attractions. Construction of Sagrada Familia began in 1882 and Gaudí began working on the project in 1883. He combined Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms and the basilica became his life’s work. Still incomplete, La Sagrada Família, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is projected to be finished in 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudí’s death.
