Sagrada Familia, Spain

From series “15 Unofficial Man-Made Wonders of the World”
Year: 19th century.

Fans of outstanding attractions usually visit the Temple of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. That's the most famous long-term construction in the world and the outstanding work of Antonio Gaudi. Construction of the temple began in 1882 and still continues today. The first project of the temple has been represented by the well-known architect, Francisco del Villar. A year later, a work on the project was continued by Antonio Gaudi. He has made significant amendments to the original draft.

Sagrada Familia, Spain Since the beginning of construction, the founding idea was to erect the magnificent building solely at expenses of parishioners. This explains the fact that the construction of the temple has been going on for over a century. The edifice is notable for its amazing appearance. However, both facade and interior are unique. It's very difficult to find a straight line in decoration. Antonio Gaudi used complex geometric shapes, which made the interior and appearance of the temple special.

Fine stained glass windows and a variety of shapes and sizes, spiral staircases and tall columns make appearance unusual. Interior decoration of the temple made it Barcelona's main tourist attraction and the outstanding architectural project of global significance. The building plan designed by great master Gaudi is so complicated that even at the present level of technological development it will be possible to finish the construction not earlier than 2026. Sagrada Familia is in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. That's one of the most visited attractions in the world. Next - Duomo di Milano
