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!

Knock Knock Who’s There?

I love finding new and interesting doorways and hallways, they always make me want to see what’s on the other side, like these treasures I found recently in Spain and Gibraltar.   The Spanish people are very proud of their ornate doors, and their craftmanship is also very evident in the tiling and carvings seen everywhere.  You only have to visit someplace like Barcelona  to marvel at the works of the very talented architects of the past.     Have a look at this post by restlessjo for some fabulous examples of Gaudi work.
