The way to 2026
In the afternoon of June 10th, 1926, Gaudí was heading the Sant Felip Neri square, where he used to go to church. That was the last day Gaudí stared at Sagrada Familia, his unfinished dream.
Luckily, Gaudí left a number of mocks and plans that allow the team of architects at Sagrada Familia to follow the plan conceived by the Modernista genius. The works of Barcelona’s greatest temple are set to finish in 2026, on the 100th anniversary of Gaudí’s death.
