The biggest attraction in Barcelona would have to be ‘La Sagrada Familia’, designed by Antoni Gaudi. This church began construction in the late 1800s and is not scheduled to be finished until 2020 or thereabout.
Why would a church take OVER 100 years to complete? You have to see it to believe it.
There will be 18 towers representing the 12 Apostles, the 4 Evangelists, The Virgin Mary and Christ Jesus. Intricate art and sculpture work adorn 3 facades, representing the Passion, the Glory and the Nativity.
The Spanish government, along with other interested parties, is financing the completion of the church. Workers maintain a busy schedule, and even with all the resources available, it will take at least another 10 years to finish.
