Known simply as the Sagrada Familia, it is a basilica of Barcelona, designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí. Started in 1882, there are 5 generations that have been seeing the evolution of the temple. Today the construction continues, and it could end during the first third of the 21st century.
It is the masterpiece of Gaudí, it supposes the synthesis of all the architectonic evolution of the brilliant architect.
Gaudí achieved a perfect harmony in the interrelation between structural and ornamental elements, between plastic and aesthetic, between function and form, between content and continent, achieving the integration of all the arts into a structured and logical whole, “I am a geometer, which means synthetic. “
2017 marks the 135th anniversary of the laying of the first stone of the temple. We are currently 70% of the construction.
“I will grow old, but others will come after me.” What must always be preserved is the spirit of the work, but his life has to depend on the generations that transmit it and with which he lives and incarnates himself. “» A. Gaudí
