Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona

The number one tourist attraction in Spain is the Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) basilica in the city of Barcelona. Designed by Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), the basilica has been under construction since 1882. Gaudí started working on it in 1883 when the original architect resigned. He worked the rest of his life on the project; it was only about one-quarter finished when he died approximately 43 years later. Gaudí is buried in the basilica’s crypt.
