Barcelona, a photo a day

Sagrada Familia, post 1100


Every few years, I like going back to the Sagrada Familia cathedral, to check out the progression of the work. Not sure I’ll be there to see it finished, as the dates quoted by different sources go from 2026 to… 2150. Don’t want to live till 2150!!!
Anyway, they finished the main nave 18 months ago, and I hadn’t been back since. It is VERY impressive! Will show you more on my next posts.

This is the ceiling of the main nave by the way.

    What's this about the new “courtyards”? And their session in Barcelona? http://www.zenit.org/article-34808?l=english
