AN INCREDIBLE CHURCH THAT'S BEEN BEING BUILT FOR 118 YEARS

The beautiful church is known as Church of the Holy Family and is a massive, privately funded Roman Catholic Church that has been under construction in Barcelona, Spain since 1892 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026. It was designed by renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. It is absolutely huge and is one of Spain’s most visited tourist attraction.

I am sure, once it gets completed, it will be one of the best structures in the country.

That is a long time for a church to be built. Reminds me of Egypt, each new Pharaoh that came into power had to build on to the temple at Luxor. The Church of the Holy Family is massive and is very unique. Thank you for coming by.
