Barcelona, Spain (1) – La Sagrada Familia

Either you hate it or you love it.  I’m stuck in the middle…I can’t say I hate it but I can’t say I love it.

So many detailed creations, it would take all day to see it all.  Hopefully, I captured enough photos to appreciate the workmanship.  I recommend to take the time to look at each photo to see all the detail.  It wasn’t until I started sorting through the pictures before I realized how intricate it was.

Construction started in 1882 and anticipate the completion by 2026, 100 years after the architect’s death.  Gaudi’s architectural plans, which were partially destroyed in the Spanish Civil War, are being redrawn, using today’s technology.

With the long line-up to get in, we decided to stay external.
