Every city has its’ landmark. For Paris it’s the Eiffel Tower, for Rome – The Coliseum, for Athens – the Parthenon… And of course the Sagrada Família in sunny Barcelona! Once the construction is finished, Sagrada Familia will be the tallest religious structure in Europe! Being so vast, it obviously does make an impact on Barcelona’s skyline, but that was not the only goal Gaudí had in mind for it. As a true Christian, he wanted to show appreciation of Christianity as well as pay respect for the work of God – nature.
