La Sagrada Família is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, and is still under construction. This church is one of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí 's famous work.
This under construction church displays the old Gaudi's architectural marvels as well as as new high tech designed architectures. This combination is very interesting to watch. The change from old to new is evident through the contrast in the stone colour between the front and back of the building.
Look for: The Nativity Facade: Symbolizes the birth of Jesus, the only facade to be built almost to completion while Gaudí was alive. The Passion Facade: Its construction completed and guided by drawings made by Gaudí. Dedicated to the Passion of Christ. The Facade of Glory: Will give access to the basilica's central nave and is still under construction. The interior: Marked by Gaudí's personal style and inspired by nature, giving the feel of forest.
