Hotel Sagrada Familia

Description

A Roman Catholic Cathedral in a suburb of Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia was designed by Antoni Gaudi and is still under construction. Work began in 1882 and is likely to continue until at least 2026. One of Spain's top tourist attractions, it receives over 2 million visitors annually from all over the world. With 18 spiralling towers - representing the Apostles, the Evangelists, Jesus and Mary, and 3 grand facades of the Nativity, the Glory and the Passion - the exterior is a mix of geometrical and metaphysical ideas drawn out by Gaudi and carried on by a succession of architects after his death in 1926. The Interior is only partially complete, and visitors are limited to views of the 60 metre central vault and it's naves. Extensive use of Gaudi's unique interplay between complex geometry and liturgical symbolism is to be found here. The construction of the building, which in 2009 is likely to be more than 18 million euros is entirely funded through private donations and visitor ticket fees. It is planned to be partially open for worship by 2010. An eponymous Metro Station, the junction of Lines L2 and L5, is located beneath the square on which the Cathedral stands

Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece. It has no comparison with anything you have seen before.

Barcelona is known for its unusual sights and the Sagrada Familia cathedral is one of them. One of the giants in Barcelona is just Sagrada Familia. Located in downtown - we found easily. This is an incredibly beautiful building of the famous architect Antonio Gaudi. I am amazed at the results of this creation. The cathedral is still under construction and this is evident in the towering cranes. To see close Sagrada Familia is a unique moment. ...

Amazing!
Reviewed October 2011 by jeffjen
I do like to visit cathedrals and churches and am also a fan of the work of Antoni Gaudi, the Catalan architect who designed La Sagrada Familia and whose work can be seen in many places in Barcelona. In Gaudi's works there are the most diverse construction techniques, and great architectural innovation due to his knowledge of geometry. Unfortunately, Gaudi was run over by a tram and died in 1926, aged 73 and is buried inside the church. He had ...

La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is beautifull
Reviewed April 2011 by djodjo
Is an enormous building, still under construction. Gaudi didn't live to see it finished. As they predict there are still many years until finishing all the towers. A place to see if you visit Barcelona.

still fascinating after 3 months
Reviewed March 2011 by MycketM
I lived very close to the Sagrada Familia for about 3 months and I have to say that I couldn't get enough of it. It is really beautiful to look at, although you should go to the front side and walk around the small pond in the park to get a better view of it. (and good pictures!) I also went inside and up the towers, but it's very expensive and also not that special. The interior part of the church was still quite impressive, but during the ...

THE UNFINISHED SYMPHONY
Reviewed September 2006 by thingywhatsit
Before Gaudi had a chance to finish the Sagrada Familia, he died in a tram accident. Gaudi was born in the 1840's and as a child was confined to bed by an illness, though it did not take long for his genius to be recognised and one can only imagine that the years that he was bedridden served to help his imagination soar. Later in school, he excelled in some subjects although mathematics was not one of them, which is surprising when you see the ...
