Travel Barcelona Spain Sagrada Familia

The architecture may have deviated from the standard styles of churches, but Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia has been given the status of a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. While many debate over its style and the ornate design of the monument, Sagrada Familia continues to be built with donations from people even after 130 years. It is the living identity of the city of Barcelona.
