Another work of Antonio Gaudi, unfortunately incomplete, but still quite impressive. Whether one likes his style or not, it’s hard not to be awed by the work done by the famous Catalan architect.
Since Gaudi’s death in 1926, work has continued and still continues according to its original blueprints. The techniques used today are obviously more modern than the ones used in 1882, when construction of this monument started.
Note: The Nativity façade and crypt are considered as World Heritage by UNESCO, as are more works of Gaudi.
