Sagrada Família

Sagrada Família

This is one of Gaudí’s unfinished masterpieces and pays tribute to the Sagrada family.

La Sagrada Familia the magnificent surreal church is designed by Gaudí. While still unfinished it’s like no other church you’ll ever see: Its design is a combination of a dragon’s cave and a castle made from whipped cream. (You can take an elevator up one of the spires but be prepared to cover your ears—the bell may gong while you’re up there. The view is awe- and vertigo-inspiring.)
