Still unfinished, the Basílica de la Sagrada Familia is the most important work of the architect Antonio Gaudí. Designed in the tradition of Gothic and Byzantine cathedrals, its shapes, images and sculptures express Christian beliefs and transmit an evangelical message. To understand the complex symbology of the structure and the elaborate decorations of this place of worship requires considerable thought. The natural world, prayer and the principles of Christianity merge to create a unique and original building, in which every element has a meaning.
Verticality is an important characteristic with which the architect represents the purpose of lifting oneself up to God. A total of 18 infinite towers Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the four evangelists and the twelve apostles symbolize. It is really worthwhile to go inside and go up its long spiral staircases, as from the top, you will be able to gaze upon the best views of the city. The glorious facades, which surround the basilica, tell the story in their figures of the most important moments in the life of Christ.

Without a doubt, the Sagrada Familia is one of the most beautiful and interesting places to visit in the city.
