One of the most popular visit on any trip to Barcelona, the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, commonly known as the Sagrada Família, was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).

Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in November 2010 was consecrated and proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI.

Though construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882, Gaudí became involved in 1883, taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style—combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms.

It is a major tourist attraction in its own right and an iconic building of Barcelona.
