OK, you’ve got to see this cathedral for yourself. Photos just don’t do it justice. Especially these hasty ones I took on the way back to the airport!
Work on the Sagrada began in 1861. When Gaudi died in 1926 his workers continued his vision but the cathedral still won’t be completed until 2026 – the 100th anniversary of his death.
The new additions are clearly un-Gaudi like. A lot more structured and linear. Apparently Gaudi’s original sketches were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.
