    La Sagrada Familia – The most famous monument in Barcelona

    Upon entering this wonderful venue, the first thing that will leave you speechless is the combination of light, relief, color and spirituality.

    The architect Antonio Gaudí knew how to perfectly and harmoniously complement all the details, both the sculptures and the shape and height, adorning the cathedral with incredible precision.

    From the moment you set foot inside the cathedral, the main thing that jumps out at you is the naturist style, a personal brand of Gaudí.

    The central nave and the apse surprise all tourists with 36 perfectly placed columns in the shape of a tree, apart from other vegetative elements that combine in a unique way with the stained glass windows that flood the space with colors and nuances.

    Visit the Expiatory Church of the Sagrada Familia

    For the interior of the cathedral, Gaudí used the idea of ​​the architect who preceded him, leaving the Latin cross plan with 5 naves and the ogival elements.

    These elements had a Gothic style, as a representation of the great cathedrals and churches of Europe, but they were transformed to give it a newer and more original style.

    In the central nave a dome with a height of 170 meters was built, by the time of Antonio Gaudí’s death (1926) only the crypt, the apse wall and the Nativity door had been built.

    In 1976, the painter Josep María Subirachs was in charge of restoring the lost splendor to the temple, decorating the Passion façade.

    Museum and crypt

    The tour inside the basilica leads to the crypt, the place where Gaudí is buried.

    Continuing down, in a kind of basement, is the museum, a place where the first sketches and plans of what would be the Cathedral are exhibited, as well as a bust and personal belongings of Antonio Gaudí, as a tribute to this architect who marked an entire era.

    Birth gate

    It is the only one that the famous architect finished alive. In it he was inspired to collect all the aspects of nature, you will be able to observe rounded rocks, human figures and vegetative representations.

    The most interesting of all is that he mixed biblical scenes with divination signs that only those who know the subject can decipher.

    The door of the birth highlights the joy for the conception of Jesus, you can admire classic figures of the holy family such as the baby Jesus, Saint Joseph, the Virgin, the shepherds and the angels.

    From this part you can go up to a viewpoint 60 meters high, with a simply spectacular view.

    The apse

    It occupies the third head of the enclosure, it is in the middle of the Nativity and Passion façades. In the center, the chapel of the Assumption will be built, which will be connected to the cloister and will surround the entire enclosure. The original inspiration for the construction of the apse was the Virgin Mary, of whom Gaudí was a faithful devotee.

    It contains 7 apsidal chapels that are a representation of the 7 sorrows and joys of Saint Joseph. It is Gothic in style and its construction was carried out between 1891 and 1893.

    Did you know that the Sagrada Familia is built with French, Scottish or English stones?

    Antonio Gaudí began by building the Sagrada Familia with stones from the Montjuic quarries. The lack of material from these quarries has meant that, since the middle of the last century, stones have been brought from quarries in England, France, Scotland or from regions such as Galicia and Cantabria.

    The official commission for the Basilica was initially the responsibility of Francisco del Villar, who resigned a year after taking charge of the project. After that, Gaudí decided to take charge of such a work, to which he dedicated 43 years of his life.
