Information about Segrada Familia Barcelona

 

This page contains information about the Segrada Familia in Barcelona. We believe that it is the only large scale Christian place of worship being built in the world.

The design of the basilica is based on the work of the Catalonian artist and architect Antoni Gaudi who is buried in the crypt. The craftsmanship of the builders is outstanding. I am a great admirer of the medieval craftsmen but believe that the men building the Segrada are their equals in many ways even though thry have the benefit of power tools and tower cranes.

If you can visit, put aside most of the day. There is a lot to see and appreciate. You should also book on-line. You will get a dedicated time slot and avoid the very long queues. A bonus is that booking on-line gets you a cheaper ticket. The same goes for the Gaudi Gardens.
