All about Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia Basilica was began on March the 19th 1882. A year later Antoni Gaudí took over the project and dedicated his entire life to it. Fundrarising has not always been so easy. Years ago the neighbors collected small donations on a regular basis with the hope that one day Sagrada Familia could be completed. In 2010 the inside of the temple was finished and Pope Benedict came to celebrate the first service. The construction works continue day after day to complete the 18 towers that Antoni Gaudí had once designed. When the tower dedicated to Jesuschrist is finished, Sagrada Familia will be the tallest church in the whole world.
