Sagrada Família Tips (50)

Unusual Gargoyles

Favorite thing Don't miss the delightful details, like this turtle at the base of a column of the Sagrada Familia. I recall spending time climbing the towers (not for the claustrophobic!) and being surprised along the way by the carvings and sculptures.

Unfinished Architecture

Favorite thing Definitely one of my favorite things in Barcelona! Yes, you've heard it called Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece. It is unbelievable! Of, course you must climb to the top to see all the strange gargoyles along the way. See my must-see tips for more pics!

Immerse yourself in Modernisme

Favorite thing Immerse yourself in Modernisme. This is the Nativity Facade: the most complete part of the church (1904). It has doorways representing Faith, Hope & Charity. The white doves represent the congregation.

Visit SAGRADA FAMILIA!

Favorite thing Visit SAGRADA FAMILIA! The most amazing church I've ever been & one that's still under construction since groundwork was laid in 1882 & death of its architect in 1926!

Fondest memory Discovery of the greatest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world! Catalan Modernisme: this is art to me! Wow, what an uplifting experience!

Familia Sagrada

Favorite thing This amazing bit of architecture will blow your mind - I`ve never seen anything quite like it.

It was designed by Gaudi and is still being finished - everything about it seem so delicate and interwoven.

Fondest memory Went to see a Barcelona game at the Neu Camp (they beat Bolagna 2 - 0). The sight of a packed stadium filled with enthusiastic fans of both sides without a hint of trouble was excellent.

The stadium is awesome and well laid out and I had a great view. Some Barca fans helped me out with spanish translations and then went out for some beers with me afterwards.

Favorite thing Check out the sites. You should check other VT pages for tips, but one of the obvious sites to visit is the
Sagrada Familiar (by Antonin Gaudi). This is me thinking (this is all great fun, but for christ sake lets go and have a beer !).

Favorite thing Visit the Temple Expiatiori de la Sagrada Familia.
Simply known as Sagrada Familia, this massive unfinished cathedral was designed by Gaudi and when he died, remained as his greatest monument. Work proceeds now to complete this imposing structure along the lines Gaudi may have planned. The place is the highlight of a trip to Barcelona and in the neighbourhood, there are other beautiful and strange buildings. Getting to Sagrada Familia is easy when there's a Metro station right beside it.

Fondest memory This was the highlight of my trip.

Favorite thing Go to see symbol of Spain - Sagrada Familia(More pics are in Travelogue ^^)

Fondest memory This is one of the city's most representative and emblematic monuments, as well as one of the most popular with visitors. Gaudi began to direct work on this cathedral in 1883, following the original plans drawn up by Francesc De Paula Villar. The main impulsor of the idea of dedicating a church to the exaltation of Saint Joseph and the Holy Family as symbols of stability and family values. Its completion now depends on donations.

Sagrada Familia

Favorite thing Visit the Sagrada Familia. This building is unique and breathtaking no matter how you feel about the actual aesthetics of the arctitecture. I think it's the most daring and interestingly beautiful building I have ever seen.

Fondest memory Arriving at Arc de Triomphe station on a Sunday afternoon and strolling through the Citudella in the sunshine. Everyone seemed to be in the park. Families out for a stroll, groups of young people sitting on the grass chatting, juggling, practising yoga, playing bongos, children playing...everywhere, children playing. Everyone smiled at us and made us feel welcome.

Favorite thing Sagrada Familia. Although this has not yet been finished it is absolutely breathtaking! Oh and all of the Gaudi stuff as well such as the many houses he built in the city and the Park Guell. The architecture is simply astounding.

Fondest memory Barcelona is such a living and creatively city and this is the reason why i love it so much. Every aspect of its being exudes creativity, from the buildings to the clothes of the people and even to their attitudes. This is also the reason why i'm moving here.

Favorite thing See the Sagrada Familia church.

Fondest memory I have been a big fan of Gaudi for many years. This is the most famous building, but there are many more buidings and sites of Gaudi in Barcelona.

Favorite thing visit the Sagrada Familia, it is an unfinished church whose construction began late 19th century and has still not been completed due to several attacks, death of the constructor Antonio Gaudi and loss of the original plans of the church. It is an amazing structure which can be easily identified amongst the skyline of Barcelona. There are intricate carvings on the face of this structure, which simply beautifies its presence. See adjoining pic

Fondest memory The huge crowds, the local dance after Sunday mass outside the churches and the vibrant street of La Rambla.
