Gay Travel: Barcelona's Sagrada Familia
This was not my first time in Barcelona, but yes indeed the first time spending almost two hours exploring inside-out, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sagrada Familia. Right after my Facades and Architecture walk/tour along Paseo de Gracia and Av. Diagonal, I arrived right to Sagrada Familia, considered by many as the most famous landmark of Barcelona.

Designed meticulously by the great architect Antoni Gaudi. This work of art has taken over 100 years to build and contains the finest architecture in the city. Construction continues and they estimate will come to full completion by 2026.

Construction of Sagrada Familia had commenced in 1882 and Gaudi became involved in 1883, taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style, combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. Gaudi devoted his last years to the project, and at the time of his death at age 73 in 1926 less than a quarter of the project was complete.
