On Tuesday, I posted this photo of the ceiling of the entranceway to the most famous architecture in Barcelona, namely Sagrada Família. I talked about how intricate and perhaps garish the features of this incomplete church was. So here we have a small section (this church is huge) of the ceiling on the inside. I have never seen anything like this in any church I have been to in my life. I am sure there is nothing like it anywhere. In fact, a famous quote by an architectural critic was "The most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages." Looking around, it is hard to disagree with the quote.
No photos can truly capture the essence of this place. Only when viewed in person can one walk away with an appreciation of the amazingness of it. It will have been under construction for 146 years if the estimated completion date in 2028 is achieved. God willing, I'd like to see it when it is completed.
