Get to Know the Sagrada Familia
With a towering height of at least 557 feet, the Basílica de la Sagrada Família (or the Basilica of the Holy Family) stands as a characteristic landmark in Barcelona’s Eixample district. It’s a Roman Catholic minor basilica that was first built in 1882 but is still under active construction until after 2026. This long period of construction is due to several factors, including funding (construction is made possible by donations and ticket sales only) and loss of original design plans. As of this article’s writing time, the Sagrada Familia is at least 70% complete.
Here’s a shortened version of the Sagrada Familia milestones to help in your appreciation:
- 1882: Bishop Urquinaona lays the cornerstone of the Temple
- 1883: Antoni Gaudi takes over the construction
- 1885: First masses are held
- 1926: Antoni Gaudi dies and Domènec Sugranyes takes over the project
- 1936: La Sagrada Família is vandalized and plans are burnt (Spanish Civil War)
- 1961: Museum created to educate the public about the history behind and symbols of La Sagrada Familia
- 2005: The Nativity facade and crypt are named UNESCO World heritage
- 2019: The tower of the Evangelists and the tower of the Virgin Mary begin to take shape
- 2020 (March): Construction is temporarily halted due to COVID-19
- 2020 (October): Construction resumes with the focus on completing the tower of the Virgin Mary
- 2021: The tower reaches 134 meters.
