Sagrada Familia - Eixample
It is difficult to add something new to the many things said about this work in progress unfinished Temple. More than 125 years from the day that the foundation stone was placed by the Bishop Urquinaona, the initial project much more traditional, the Gaudi new design much more revolutionary, the dead of Gaudi, the Civil War and the fire in the workshop that destroyed many of the original models, the reconstruction of the burn crypt and models, the different political situations in Spain and in Catalunya through the years, the new architects and Sculptors selected to continue the project will all form part of the story of the church when, some years from now, it will be finished; difficult to know exactly when, because as more technology has been added to the project the construction is progressing faster, so in every new visit is possible to have a better idea of this work in progress.
It is not till the ends of the work that the full magnificence of Gaudi’s project will be appreciate and the Temple will have a complete unity. But in every new visit is possible to discover how the pieces are getting into a complete unit. In November 2010, with the work in progress as it is expected that they will continue at least until 2041, Pope Benedict XVI will come to Barcelona to consecrate the Church.
