Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain

This structure, when finished, will have been 144 years in the making—it was begun on March 19, 1882 (the Feast of St. Joseph). It has been an “expiatory” church—meaning that it has always been built entirely from private donations.

Sagrada Familia (http://www.sagradafamilia.org/en/) is a “minor basilica” that, when finished, will be the tallest church building in the world; it has already been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is a structure pointing to a world beyond that, when finished, will have 12 towers dedicated to the apostles, 4 to the evangelists, 1 to Blessed Mother, and 1 (the tallest, in the center) to Jesus Christ. Eight are already complete: the Nativity towers and the Passion towers. Currently, 70% of the Basilica is finished.
