2018/09/27 Spain Day 04: Barcelona's Sagrada Familia
π 2018-09-27 01:01 in Monuments, Spain2018
Gaudi is known for many buildings in Barcelona, but of course Sagrada Familia is the most well known. While he worked on it until he died (sadly he was run over by a tram), the construction got halted during the war and Spain's dark times, but it's being worked on again, ideally it will be finished within 10 years.
Getting tickets at the times I wanted (first thing in the morning) was challenging, so I booked a slightly more expensive guided tour which included entrance and wasn't bad at all.





poor thing :)

We did the tower tour, which had decent views, but it was still work in progress (top is still being built):



the stairs were truly bad ass

The museum attached to the cathedral gave lots of details on the history and the build, as well as Gaudi's life:

Gaudi used nature for many of his designs

Definitely one of a kind, worth the visit.
