The evolving history of La Sagrada Familia: From ashes to masterpiece

If you have traveled to Barcelona, La Sagrada Familia was most likely on your must-see list. Started in 1882, the unique and ever-evolving church has a fascinating construction history.

In the 1990s, when we out-of-towners first visited La Sagrada Familia, it was roofless with a few volunteer contractors milling around. It appeared to be a project destined to creep along in our lifetimes. But instead, it has achieved phenomenal progress and engineering design.

ArchDaily documented a nice history of the building of the Sagrada Familia.

It's now functioning as a church, with a projected finish date of 2026. 

The Sagrada Familia is still a must-see.
