Again, this was another place that I had never visited before but seen many images online, I thought I was preparred for it when I walked through the doors but this place was simply amazing, I will treat you all to the images of the interior in a later upload ;-). I have heard many of photographer and person say this. I could have spent all day in this cathedral. Sadly Gaudi never lived long enough to see this place complete. Construction started in 1882 and is not due to be finished until 2028 at the earliest!! I was amazed by this sheer timescale and when I was told about this I thought people was joking but it turned out they were right however when you go you can see why it will and has taken so long. The attention to detail and sheer scale of the interior is awesome. The spiral staircase is inside one of the spires and this staircase does not even take you all the way up or down from the top of it as there is another staircase that takes you even higher. Again this is another place to visit first thing in the morning as I was told the queues can be massive and sometimes into the hours during busy times of the year. Anyway, must dash, I hope your all enjoying my Barcelona images so far :-).

Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in November 2010 was consecrated and proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. Though construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882, Gaudí became involved in 1883 taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style—combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. Gaudí 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. Sagrada Família's construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War—only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project's greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026—the centennial of Gaudí's death. The basílica has a long history of dividing the citizens of Barcelona—over the initial possibility it might compete with Barcelona's cathedral, over Gaudí's design itself over the possibility that work after Gaudí's death disregarded his design and the recent possibility that an underground tunnel of Spain's high-speed train could disturb its stability. Describing Sagrada Família, art critic Rainer Zerbst said "it is probably impossible to find a church building anything like it in the entire history of art" and Paul Goldberger called it "the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagrada_Fam%C3%ADlia
