Barcelona Sagrada Familia

The most visited monument in Barcelona

Barcelona Sagrada Familia

An incredible construction of monumental proportions and meticulous decoration, the Sagrada Familia is one of the craziest architectural endeavours and an emblematic masterpiece of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, which is still under construction today.

Located in the Eixample district, the Sagrada Familia is a symbolic monument of Barcelona.

The Sagrada Familia is a minor Catholic basilica in Barcelona. 128 years after the laying of the foundation stone, the Sagrada Familia was consecrated as a Basilica by the blessing of Pope Benedict XVI on November 7, 2010. Located in the Eixample district of the Catalan capital, at the number 401 of Mallorca Street, the expiatory temple of the Holy Family, of its full name, is undoubtedly one of the most visited monuments in Barcelona, and Spain.

Sagrada Familia towers

The impressive project of Holy Family, the most famous of Antoni Gaudi's monuments, consists of 18 towers. Twelve of them represent the twelve apostles, four for four evangelists, one tower for the Virgin Mary and one tower for Christ.

The facade of the nativity

Identical to the other facades, the nativity facade is made up of four bell towers.
The façade of the nativity is the only part of the basilica that Antoni Gaudi built directly; it was recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
