In 1883, Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi took over the design and construction of a church in Barcelona dedicated to the Holy Family- “The Sagrada Familia". Extremely passionate about this project, Gaudi continued to work on the church until his death in 1926. Although aware that he would not live to see the project complete, Gaudi designed and laid the foundations for several elements including the naves, and the facades, and built models for the domes.
Gaudi’s plans, models, and records were used to guide all the architects who continued to work on the Sagrada Familia project. More than 140 years later, It remains unfinished and is estimated to be completed in 2026, the 100th anniversary of Antoni Gaudí's death.
The intricate exteriors of the Sagrada Familia draw crowds by the millions annually. However, the interiors of the Sagrada Familia are just as spectacular.
Much like the rest of the basilica, there is a lot to see inside the basilica. The interiors showcase of Gaudi’s genius, with its perfect blend of gothic naturalism, religious symbolism, and nature motifs, creating an architectural structure speaking of Gaudi's unique style. The floor plan of the basilica takes the shape of a Latin cross, with a nave of five ships opening onto a transept with three naves, and an apse with a large ambulatory.
The church columns are shaped like tree trunks that rise towards the ceiling of the church, creating the illusion of a canopy of a majestic forest, while the colored glass windows creates a spectacular kaleidoscopic effect. The interiors truly make you feel like you are standing in the presence of God.Sagrada Familia Interiors
The Sagrada Familia has three monumental façades, each connected to the life of Jesus Christ:
The Sagrada Familia Towers are a formidable sight. Of the 18 towers that Gaudi envisioned, 9 have been completed so far- 4 towers on the Nativity Facade and 4 towers on the Passion Facade, and the Virgin Mary Tower. The towers on the Nativity Facade look over the east of Barcelona while the towers on the Passion Facade face the city center. You can choose to use the elevator to go up the tower, however, you will have to climb the stairs to get back down.
Access to the Sagrada Familia Towers is not included with the standard admission ticket. You will have to buy a ticket that includes tower access. These tickets allow you to enter the church as well as climb either the Nativity or Passion Facade tower.Discover the Sagrada Familia Towers
The Sagrada Familia Museum is an underground exhibition that houses Gaudi’s construction models, drawings, contemporary photographs, and ceremonial furnishings. In the fire of 1936, many of Gaudi’s designs and plaster models were destroyed. After a painstaking process of collecting the destroyed models and restoring them, the Sagrada Familia Museum was opened in the semi-basement under the Passion façade.
Today, visitors can visit the museum to learn more about the life and working process of Gaudi and look at these models to get an understanding of the scale of the construction that Gaudi initiated.
