Tuesdays of Texture : Week 26 of 2017


La Sagrada Familia

Inside La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

This is a photo of the inside of La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s masterpiece in Barcelona, one of the most famous sights in that city.  The building of the church started in 1882, and is still going on  – it was designed by Antoni Gaudi and he worked on this cathedral and other projects until his death in June 1926.

In 1914 he left all other work to concentrate exclusively on this sole project until his death on 10 June 1926, the result of a tragic accident three days earlier. His funeral cortege, which went through much of Barcelona and finished in the Sagrada Familia, was a grand event in the city in recognition of his status as the greatest architect Barcelona has ever seen. Gaudí was buried in the chapel of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia.

It is a magnificent building, both inside and out, and if you are ever in Barcelona, it’s a must see – in fact it is so imposing that you really cannot miss it!

    I have always been overwhelmed by this place whenever it pops up virtually, it looks like one can not breathe while contemplating it because it is so overpowering.
    Thanks so much for sharing your post!
