Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece turned UNESCO World Heritage site

The Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's crowning achievement - and it's not even finished! This ornate church embodies both the renowned Catalan architect's ambitious imagination and his religious devotion.
There is nothing understated about the Basilica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia (Sagrada Familia), Antoni Gaudí's magnum opus. Its slender spires tower over the Catalan capital, and every surface is intricate and significant. It's truly a marvel. Incorporating both Christian symbolism and organic forms in its own unique style, the world-renowned Catalan architect was so dedicated to this project that he lived onsite for 16 years (and is buried in the crypt below).
When it's finished in 2026 - on the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death - the Sagrada Familia will have taken 144 years to complete. The original plan called for eighteen spires, the tallest of which will be 172.5m, thus making it the tallest church spire in the world. It was Gaudí's wish that the temple's construction be financed by the people, and the entrance fees go towards the completion of the church, started in 1882. The onsite Sagrada Familia Museum is well worth a look while you're there!
Please note that access to the towers isn't included.
