Sagrada Familia - Barcelona, Spain

La Sagrada Familia is a large Roman Catholic cathedral in Barcelona, Spain. The construction of the cathedral began in 1882 but is not projected to be completed until the year 2026. Gaudi is the main architect and designer behind this massive beaut. Gaudi has many buildings of his design throughout Barcelona... homes, museums, and even a park.

Carrie and I went to visit La Sagrada Familia one morning and she purchased tickets for us online ahead of time to go up to the top of one side... we went up the top of the Nativity facade. It was well worth the elevator ride up top and the narrowly winding staircase down... the views were phenomenal and so is this structure.
