Barcelona, a photo a day

Sagrada Familia


Yesterday, together with 24431 more people, I went to the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, aka the organic cathedral. The Cathedral had it’s annual Open Doors day. Hadn’t been inside for 5 years, although I live just around the corner, and I could see the progress, changed a lot in 5 years. In october this year, the central nave will finally be opened for masses, after 127 years (building started in 1882). This is a shot of the ceiling in the central nave.
Should be finished around 2150, or so they say, due to the traditional way of building.

  1. Interesting structure! It feels like being inside a huge fish skeleton.

  2. Interesting photo! Were you laying on your back on the floor to take it? Why so long to build thus far? Why sooo long to complete it?

  3. Goodness! I knew it was taking forever to build, but I didn't realize that it wasn't even finished enough for Masses. Is that the ceiling? It looks like some kind of coral or plant! Organic is right, in more ways than one.
