La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia is Gaudi‘s “masterpiece.”  Construction on the temple began in 1882, and has been ongoing ever since.  Gaudi died in 1926, and so several different architects have been tapped to flesh out the master’s design.

It was especially interesting seeing the interior of the temple, which had progressed significantly since I was there 4 years ago.
