Illumination … Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

St George


This is my entry for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Week 13.

One of my favourite activities when travelling in Europe is to visit the great cathedrals and other beautiful places of worship ~ the Sagrada Famlia nestled in the heart of Barcelona among them.

Originally designed by famed Catalonian architect, Antoni Gaudi, and with construction beginning in 1882, this amazing edifice is slated for completion around 2026.

Though the interior is not yet finished, for a fee tourists are able to go inside and see the miracle unfold. The Sagrada Familia is an expiatory project which is to say the building of it is completely funded by private donations and the millions of visitors who flock to see it every year.

I featured several images from my visit some time ago in a weekly photo challenge. This is one of my favourites.

The Sagrada Familia is well worth some of your time if you’re ever in beautiful Barcelona.

Thanks for visiting,
