Curves and Colors in La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

What an amazing place. Antoni Gaudi was a man ahead of his times. La Sagrada Familia blends nature, the litergy, and classical elements in a eye popping church that celebrates the life and death of Jesus and the Catholic view of the Trinity. Begun in 1883, the church is scheduled to be complete in 2026, thanks to the dedication of the people of Barcelona and Catalonia.

I was blown away by la Sagrada Familia. Absolute spaceship of a genius mind. I wrote a blog about Barcelona when I was there last week, your comments are always appreciated!

Beautiful shots. I love the way the light plays on the organ pipes. Barcelona was my favourite place when I did my “10 countries in 20 days” tour of Europe many years ago and this church was one of the highlights

A wonder of the modern world. I’ve visited a couple of times and looking forward to going again on our September trip this year. I have so enjoyed this post. Sagrada Familia should be top of everyone’s bucket list in my opinion.

Hey. Sorry I didn’t reply sooner. Your comment was sent to my spam folder and I just found it. You are right, I do want to go back, but I’m not sure the first impression of the interior can be topped. d
