"La Sagrada Familia", one of the first places visited by tourists coming to Barcelona, Spain, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, attracts attention with its magnificent appearance as well as being in the shadow of cranes.

The construction of "La Sagrada Familia", known as the "unfinished church", began in 1882 with the help of the public. Architect Antoni Gaudi wanted "La Sagrada Familia", which he called his masterpiece, to be a magnificent structure and used complex architecture in his drawings.

TRAPPED UNDER A TRAIN WHILE WATCHING HIS WORK

Architect Antoni Gaudi, who had his signature in the important works of Catalonia, died on June 7, 1926 at the age of 73 as a result of being hit by a train while trying to watch his work from across the street.

While architect Antoni Gaudi was buried in La Sagrada Familia, the architectural mystery of the project has not been solved for 141 years.

VISITED IN THE SHADOW OF CRANES

The world's best architects have been working on the project for years to unravel the mysterious drawings of architect Antoni Gaudi and complete La Sagrada Familia.

After 141 years, the project is still under construction. Millions of people visit Barcelona to see La Sagrada Familia with its cranes.

If everything goes according to plan, the construction of the church will be completed in 2026, while work continues to complete the four towers of La Sagrada Familia. At 172.5 meters tall, the Sagrada Familia will be the tallest church in the world.

The first part of the building to be completed, the Nativity Façade, which bears the direct Gaudi influence, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with six other Gaudi buildings in Barcelona.
