Sagrada Familia, a Catholic church with its uniquely curved spires and detailed carvings, is a magnificent structure whose construction began in 1882 and is still not yet complete. The complex intertwining shapes of the structure are as dynamic as a plant. This rare architectural masterpiece, which evokes a variety of emotions in the viewer, is still one of Barcelona's most famous tourist attractions even in its unfinished state.
Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is one of the world's leading tourist cities, facing the Mediterranean Sea and blessed with a mild climate. It is famous for its architecture by Antoni Gaudí, who was active in the 19th century, and especially for the splendor of the Sagrada Familia, which is still being built today. The city's large area is also home to many other attractions, such as the historic Gothic Quarter, Montjuïc with its many museums, and Tibidabo, which offers a panoramic view of Barcelona.
