Sagrada Familia with Gaudi - Cya On The Road

Tickets for Sagrada Familia: Priority EntranceThe Sagrada Familia is undoubtedly the most famous piece of Gaudi architecture, although paradoxically he was not the one who initiated the work and much less the one to complete it. Started as an Expiatory Church, the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia was financed by private funds from particular donations and the entrance fees of the more than two and a half million tourists who visit this temple each year. Construction work started in 1882 based on a gothic revival style plan designed by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar after consulting with the Spiritual Association of Devotees of St. Joseph. A year later, Francisco de Paula abandoned the project, leaving Gaudí to take the reins of what would be his most majestic work. As you will see throughout this visit, the temple is full of symbolism, both inside and out. The basilica, dedicated to the "Sagrada Familia" or Holy Family, tells the biblical tales of its respective members: Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in each of the parts into which it is divided, in addition to being able to observe the multiple ecclesiastical references of various kinds, which enhance the religious significance of this architectural work. With all this, you are about to discover an unparalleled construction guided by the same architect who designed it: Gaudí. He will be the one who guides you through this unique tour and will reveal to you the deeper aspects of his work.Photo Sagfampassion by Wjh31 is licensed under CC BY 3.0
