La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia2.JPG

I got a chance to visit Barcelona over Semana Santa (Spring Break) while studying in Granada, Spain. Barcelona is the city where the most famous of Antoni Gaudi’s works are located so I went to see them all, including my favorite the Temple Expiatori Sagrada Familia dedicated to the Holy Family (Mary, Joseph and Jesus). Construction began in 1882 and has continued on to the present day even with the death of Catalan architect Gaudi. You can go to just about any church or temple in the world and feel humbled by the awe history and religion evokes, however I believe that this is the only such religious building that you can enter and actually see history being written. I would love to come back here when the temple is finished knowing that I was a part of its history.

    I’ve got to assert, that out of all time I’ve spent on the web, viewing web logs, I have not read one as to the point and well written as this one, I do not regularly comment on blogs and forums though for yourself I felt the need to make an exception, it’s very high-quality work and thoroughly opposite to the drivel, which i spend almost all of my time on the net, reading. Thank you for spending some time and investing your energy to provide your readers with a 1st class commentary. I look ahead to reading a lot more of your work, once more cheers. Angie
