It is without a doubt Barcelona‘s easily most recognisable building and attracts toursits from all over the world. It is of course Antoni Gaudí’s monumental Sagrada Familia, the surreal shapes inspired by nature, the hard chiseled features of Catalan sculptor Subirach’s works on the Passion façade and the amazing Nativity Façade are a major attraction to the millions of tourists who visit every year.
The downside to visiting the Sagrada Familia is of course the long wait to get inside and once inside you don’t have the opportunity to discover all the secrets and history of this magnificent building, Thankfully there are people out there who have taken the trouble to put together an informative website showing the chronological history of the Sagrada Familia, using historical images it shows the construction of the Sagrada Familia from the very beginning in 1882 until the present day. If you are interested in discovering more click here. There is also a rather humourous video on the website and on youtube which shows the history of the Sagrada Familia in Stop Motion. To save you having to look for it, it is attached below. Enjoy!
