Photo of the Week – Inside La Sagrada Familia

Getting High inside Sagrada Familia

The church of La Sagrada Família (Sacred Family) is a work on a grand scale which was began in 1882 and is scheduled to be completed in 2025.  This religious and architectural masterpiece by Anontio Guadi is a short walk from my Barcelona apartment which means I can easily stop by and shoot pictures whenever I’d like from the outside.  My favorite time is the early morning when I run by the church and not a single sole is around.  Go after 8:30AM though and the big line of tourists is already forming to go inside.

It’s definitely worth a trip inside to get the grand feel of the place.  If you go, take a hat for waiting in line, 15 to 20 Euros for the ticket, and a good camera with a wide angle lens.  For more information on history, architecture, and times to visit check out the official website or the Oh Barcelona Blog

And if you can’t go for yourself, let me take you inside the Sagrada Familia with photography:

    I visited Barcelona in 2005, and I cannot believe the progress completed on this building since then! Photos are great but you cannot get a real feel for the scale of this place. The city is WONDERFUL to visit, the church alone is worth the trip. FANTASTIC ART MUSEUMS. Truly one of the best architecture viewing cities in the world!!!GO THERE!!!!!

      Steve – I love your enthusiasm for the place! It’s been a couple of years since I took those photos – and I wonder how much progress has been made since then!
