At the treshold of a dream

I must admit that for as tall as I am, today I felt incredibly small. This temple gives you an overwhelming sensation, one of insignificance in front of such a great masterpiece. This afternoon, we decided to enter after putting the visit off for 3 years since we noticed a few days ago that the constructions has progressed incredibly fast.

Entering this place is like crossing the frontier between real life and dreams. The combination of natural light from the windows and the artificial light of the lamps is impossible to describe. The shapes imitating nature, mother nature, the splendor of the land, incredible hidden symbolism. To be honest, impressive, unique, divine, timeless, are not enough to describe the reality of La Sagrada Familia. The best gift we can give is to keep silent, the building leaves us completely flabbergasted. You'll have a stiff next the next day, for all the time you spent looking up. This place ennobles us as human beings, a fine example the wonderful things we can build, and without God's help ;).

Bastion of Modernism

The city of Barcelona, the center of Modernism and favorite destination of many, attracts visitors from everywhere on the planet, those craving sun, party and culture. One of the great architectural icons is the Sagrada Familia church, daughter of the master Gaudí and must-see if you're interested in catalan modernity. The construction of the so-called expiatory temple of la Sagrada Familia started in 1882, when Gaudí was only 31.

The Neo-Gothic origins of its design went changing as the construction went on, in an improvised and daring way.

We took the subway and got out at the closest exit to the cathedral. As you go up the stairs to get out, looking up, you see the structure of the building. Impressive, the first time we saw it, it was huge, beautiful. The interior also, it is very original, they say Gaudí was inspired by woods and nature in general when he designed it. It is really fantastic:)

They also say, and I don't know if it's true, that the alterations of the cathedral will end on the 150th anniversary of Gaudí's birth, because he dedicated a great part of his life designing this cathedral, not finished yet. I thought

Majestuous, different, modern.

La Sagrada Familia, as you all know, is the cathedral designed by Gaudía, that he couldn't finish and that is being built thanks to donations. In the last years things have been pushed a lot thanks to the Japanese, who are amazed at it and come in great numbers to visit it. The central nave is finished already, but the while monument isn't, and I'm not sure it will in the next ten years, because of all the problems for its location: it is in the middle of the city of Barcelona, at equal distance from the sea, the mountain, and the two rivers at the limit of the Catalan capital, Llobregat and El Besos.
