It is not just whimsical architecture: it is the visionary work of an entire lifetime standing in front of hundreds of tourists every day, their eyes shining bright with admiration. The Sagrada Familia Temple of Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, is still under construction and won’t be completed with its planned eighteen towers and all the fine detail of the façades until 2026. Contrary to what one would expect, the fact that it is unfinished not only does not discourage visitors but actually attracts locals and travellers alike in an invitation to witness its magical progress.
If you want to see Gaudí’s work during your next Barcelona trip, why not stay in a hotel near the Sagrada Familia? It will enable you to explore the Eixample quarter and enjoy the best of its Mediterranean restaurants and traditional tapas cuisine. Find our recommendations below.
