Meaning Holy Family, the Sagrada Familia is another of Gaudí’s masterful creations. Its intricate design, encompassing natural lines and angles oozes the stylistic qualities of Art Nouveau. Its 3 façades: passion, glory and nativity fit well with religious symbolism and Catholic teaching. Even those who are not religious will agree that this building is truly stunning and is definitely a must see for anyone visiting Barcelona.
Resembling a forest, the inside of the Sagrada Familia is astonishing. I had not realised the extent of its height until observing those around me, the interior makes you feel small and insignificant compared with the outside world – it gives a sense of something greater. Although not yet completed, Sagrada Familia is the most beautiful building I have seen during my short travels and I can’t wait to visit again when it is finished in 2026.
