The Expiatory Temple of the Holy Family (Sagrada Família), Antoni Gaudí’s best known work, is still unfinished but work continues with donations from private individuals as well as public bodies.

Visitors to the Sagrada Família Museum can see the whole project, with Gaudí’s plans and models, and it is interesting to see how it will look when finished. In recent years, building work has advanced at a good pace, so Gaudí’s dream should soon finally be realised. He was unable to continue working on it because he died, on 10 June 1926, from injuries he received when he was knocked down by a tram at the junction between Gran Via and Carrer de Bailèn. During his lifetime, the Passion façade was completed and he left sketches for the rest of the cathedral.

In recent years, sculptures by Josep Maria Subirachs have been added to the Passion façade and work has progressed on the naves and transept, including the columns, choir stalls and upper windows, which provide the light.

http://w110.bcn.cat/fitxers/turisme/parkguell15.362.jpgYou will not find a park like it in the world! This architectural marvel, created by Antoni Gaudí in the middle of nature, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted him to design an elegant estate with family homes. Now it is a public park and part of the city’s heritage, another marvel that awaits you on your visit to Barcelona. Don’t miss Parc Güell: it will really surprise you!

When you go to Parc Güell, you should enter by the big staircase dominated by the dragon decorated with mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as trencadís, one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Güell (using the English spelling), it is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, trencadís-covered bench. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí’s work unites nature and architecture. by Barcelona Turisme.
