Virtual Tour to the Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Be prepared to enter the spiritual and breathtakingly beautiful world of the Sagrada Familia, one of the world's most famous churches. In Spanish it is known as the Basilica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. It is a large Roman Catholic chruch in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926).

Construction began in 1882 and when Gaudi died in 1926 less than a quarter of it had been built. It is still under construction today. Perhaps one day in your lifetime it will be finished and you'll be able to visit it and without the cranes and construction workers and perhaps this is what you will see...
