In this project, Gaudí envisioned a colossal church greatly influenced by forms of nature . Construction began in 1882 and the architect devoted more than 40 years of his life to this structure. In November 2010 was consecrated and proclaimed a minor Basilica by Pope Benedict XVI.

And the construction work continues to this day; the cathedral has evolved over time to incorporate various architectural styles. Just imagine, once finished, expected to be completed by 2030, the building will reach a height of 173 metres!
