|I have always loved Barcelona.|
|It seems to me that work never stops on La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain.|
Cranes and scaffolding can be seen behind the greenery behind and on either side.
Famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi's masterpiece cathedral,
on which he worked for 43 years, is still under construction,
but is expected to be finished in 2026.
Gaudi was born in 1852 in Baix Camp, then the second city in Catalonia.
In 1859 he took over the design of Spain's most widely known church, La Sagrada Familia.
In 1914, Gaudi left all other work to concentrate exclusively on this project,
until a tragic accident led to his death on June 10, 1926.
His funeral cortege went through most of Barcelona, and finished
in the cathedreal—a grand event in recognition of his status as
the greatest architect Barcelona has ever seen. He was buried
in the chapel of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia.
