Sagrada Familia

The expiatory church of La Sagrada Familia is a work on a grand scale which was begun on 19 March 1882 from a project by the diocesan architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). At the end of 1883 Gaudi was commissioned to carry on the works, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea. Taken from this Site

As Paul Goldberger called it 
"the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic Architecture since the Middle Ages"

The Church will have three grand facades; The Nativity facade to the East (this facade is the most direct Gaudi influence), the Passion facade to the West and the Glory facade to the South (yet to be completed)
