Neighbours

The most visited tourist attraction in Barcelona at my doorstep. The Sagrada Familia started construction in 1882 and is hoped to be completed in 2026 – for the centennial of Gaudí’s death. That will total 144 years of construction which is 7 times the time it took to build the Taj Mahal.

Antoni Gaudí is buried in La Sagrada Familia, he died a few days after being hit by a tram. He was mistaken by a beggar and thus people didn’t take him to hospital promptly. So in a way, we are now neighbours.
