The history of the Sagrada Familia

sagrada familia
The Sagrada Familia is the most popular landmark in Barcelona. Thousands of tourists admire this iconic temple every day.

Although it’s considered to be Antoni Gaudí’s masterpiece, he did not designed the initial project. The project, in fact, was commissioned in 1882 to the architect Paula del Villar y Lozano. The initial ideas were related to a much smaller church than the one that was built later.

After a disagreement between the former architect and the donors, the project was assigned to Gaudi, who completely redefined it, designing an innovative temple composed of 18 towers. Unfortunately, he only had time to create one of them before his early death.

From 1914 Gaudi decided to focus exclusively on the Sagrada Familia project, building a small house close to the construction site, so that he could always be present. On June 7, 1926, he was hit by a tram on his way to the site. He died three days later and was buried in the unfinished Sagrada Familia’s crypt.

Although it’s still not completed, Gaudi’s dream is gradually coming true through other architects’ work and thanks to some donations and incomes from the visits.

Sagrada Familia towers

Among the 18 towers designed by Gaudi, so far only 8 have been built. The architect wanted to dedicate twelve towers to the apostles, four towers to the evangelists, one to Mary and another to Jesus. Each tower has a different height (it depends on the religious hierarchy the towers symbolize).

The current plan includes a 170-meter tower that will be the highest ever made in a church.
