About the Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Família, one of the most visited monuments in Spain, is an iconic symbol of Barcelona and embodies the city’s creative and progressive spirit. The basilica’s inception traces back to 1882, with architect Antoni Gaudí taking the reins in 1883 and radically transforming the project with his unique vision and unparalleled architectural language. Although still incomplete, Sagrada Familia stands as an emblem of human ingenuity and persistence. The basilica’s significance extends beyond its design; it encapsulates Catalonia’s rich cultural history and religious heritage. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a testament to Barcelona’s role as a pioneering force in modernist architecture, with Gaudí’s revolutionary approach setting a precedent for future architectural endeavours worldwide.
