Sagrada Familia, Spain
Ranked #2 in Spain Tourism
Essentially a church but every bit as iconographic as most landmarks in Spain, La Sagrada Familia is not only lovely and historic, it’s elegant and intimidating.
With multi-hued towers stretching almost as far as the eye can see, this church is yet to be completed since its start in 1882. That’s because this edifice, standing on L’Eixample, has so much complexity and depth to it and not to mention a high level of delicacy where architecture is concerned. However, the main reason why it’s yet to be finished is Antoni Gaudí, the original architect, spent 43 years on this project. Since his passing in 1926, several other architects having taken turns wearing the mantle and continuing constructing this wonderful church. From her passages to her windows, her towers to her design, La Sagrada Familia is estimated to be completed in 2026, which is Gaudi’s 100th death anniversary—adds some nice sentimental value, don’t you think?
