La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia is a basilica designed by Antoni Gaudí. The full name is Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Famíli, which means Basilica and Temple Expiatori of the Sagrada Família. La Sagrada Familia is still in progress despite the fact that the construction began in 1882. The financing depends on donations, but nowadays money is generated through entrance tickets as well. Because of the duration some parts had to be renovated, while others still need to be created. La Sagrada Familia should be finished in 2026 (see video below), as currently more than 100 labourers work on it.
Bookseller Josep María Bocabella introduced the idea of building a church in Barcelona. Not Gaudi, but Francisco de Paula del Villar was in charge of the design and they started in 1882 with the construction. After a year Francisco left the project after some arguments with the contractor. That was the moment when Gaudí became in charge of the project. He had hoped to finish the construction within 10 years, but soon realised that it was an impossible mission. To make things even worse, designs and instructions by Gaudí were turned to ashes during the Spanish Civil War in 1936. And by then Gaudí himself had already been dead for ten years.
Gaudí was part of the Catalan modernism and is perceived as the most important exponent of that particular style. The Catalan modernism is derived from Art Nouveau. At the moment the Sagrada Familia has 4 clock towers (though still in development) and in the middle of these 4 towers, another tower of 170 metres will be constructed. This tower will refer to Jesus being surrounded by four evangelists. Moreover, the basilica gets 3 facades each representing a part of the life of Jesus: the birth, the suffering and the glory. The first 2 facades are almost finished and the one about glory will be build as the last part of the whole Sagrada Familia.
