Cathedrals in Barcelona
La Sagrada Familia Cathedral
(2.112)
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 Catalan genius thus dedicated the last 15 years of his life creating and building it. The Neo-Gothic origins of its design went changing as the construction went on, in an improvised and daring way. A particular detail is the elevated towers that have yet to be finished. According to the project, there will be 18 of them, arranged in groups around the central tower. Despite the damage suffered during the bloody Spanish Civil War, the temple remains open to the public, even while construction continues, with the interior vaults and portals. The facades of the Nativity scene and the crypt were deservedly given the UNESCO World heritage title in 2005. An unquestionable architectural treasure.

Barcelona Cathedral
(71)
I'm very pleased to see that the facade's reformation is progressively being finished and that every day we discover a little more of the rehabilitated face of the Barcelona Cathedral, even though there is still a long way to go. Around 2003, the stones designing the main facade started to come off and fell piece after piece without anyone being able to do anything. This was when it was decided to cover it with green mesh in order to keep everyone safe. It's been 8 years already. If you go to see it, there are still scaffoldings and workers. Problems with the foundation are the cause of these successive delays. It is very expensive and hard to find sponsors. This is why the campaign "sponsor a stone" started. People can participate on an individual basis and contribute to the cause. The interior also needs to be reformed, especially the roofs are quite damaged and humidity and time don't really make it better. During the Corpus festivities, one can see "L'ou com balla" (the dancing egg) in clouister's fountain, which consists in putting an egg shell and with the power of the pumps in the water it dances. It is no big secret but it is something very typical and that has been done for centuries, apart from being a curious thing to see. The entrance fee to the Cathedral costs 5€ between 1 pm and 5 pm, including a visit in the choir, the cloister, the museum, terrace and the temple. If you go at another time of the day, apart from not having to pay, you will avoid the crowd of visitors. If you want to go up on the balcony, you have to pay for the elevator (2.50€) and you can enjoy views of the center of Barcelona. It is not very high but always interesting to see a city from another point of view.
