HISTORY AND OTHER INFORMATION ON THE SAGRADA FAMILIA
I heard several comments about the beauty of the famous Basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, but I thought they were a bit exaggerated, I often have high expectations of something only to be disappointed by reality ... but this time it did not happen that way at all!
Emerging from the metro L2 purple or blue L5 (Sagrada Familia stop) you will find yourself in front of this symbol of modernist inspiration that is the Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia (original name of the church). Its beauty will make you forget the rising star of the escalators ... be careful not to fall! ?? Personally, is one of the most original architecture. I´ve ever seen in my life ... only a fool could think of building such a thing, but you know, the line between genius and madness is subtle and Gaudí´s master was definitely a genius.
Remember that in Barcelona you will find many of his famous works among which the Casa Batllo, the Parc Guell and La Pedrera; within the latter encounter a floor dedicated to miniatures that illustrate the design of the Basilica and other major works of Gaudí. If you are a real master of connoisseurs and fans do not miss this gem: Gaudí took advantage of the construction of the Colonia Güell to experience various architectural techniques applied later in the Sagrada Familia. If you want to make a visit to Cologne take the lines S33, S8 or S4 train Ferrocarril FGC from Plaça d´Espanya and get off at the Colonia Güell.
Back to us: perhaps not everyone knows that the temple of the Sagrada Familia is a work still unfinished today. The first stone was laid on March 19, 1882 to Spiritual Association wishes of the devotees of San José who assigned the task of its construction to Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano. The bad relations between the Association and the architect took shortly after the project in the hands of Antoni Gaudí.
The Gaudí Master dedicated to Sagrada Familia 42 years of his life of which 12 exclusively. The entire work from the origins to today was funded by private donations; it was thanks to a hefty injection of the crypt money received at the end of the construction work in 1889, which Gaudí entirely abandon the initial recall neogothic project to experiment with something new and never seen before: a Latin cross church large size and high towers impregnated with a strong symbolic universal inspiration; although in, fact it is a Catholic temple are not lacking abundant naturalistic references, you will realize when you enter the church you´ll feel in a light wood.
On the death of Gaudí in 1926 the works continued in fits and starts because of interruptions imposed by the Civil War, during which, due to an explosion, went even lost the original drawings of the project.
The work is scheduled to end in 2026 (begin taking flights that cost less) for that date is scheduled for completion in the third façade dedicated to the glory of the risen Jesus (the facades of the Nativity and the Passion you can say ended) and the addition of 10 more towers in addition to the current 8. The highest, dedicated to Jesus, will be 172 meters. The existing towers have a height of 115 m.
The Basilica was consecrated in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI; during the celebrations, mid-Barcelona was carpeted by papal flags and the other half by the anti-papal movements insignia. For the occasion were completed by the completion of the inside work.
La Sagrada Familia is today is the most visited attraction in Spain and has about 3.2 million visitors a year, you understand now why it is better to make the tickets online and skip the line??? Read on.
