It may be one of the most spectacular buildings ever constructed by man. Go to Barcelona, Spain this summer, you can’t miss it. You will be spiritual after witnessing the greatness and meaningful scenes carved in the stones everywhere. The architect died almost a century ago but his vision is still being constructed taking 130 years and the outside of the building still isn’t finished. It is now known to be the longest running architectural project on earth.
When the Pope visited the Basilica two years ago, it was the first time Mass had been celebrated there. It was in 1883 that the Architect dreamed of that day. The Mass had 800 voices singing in one of the largest Choirs in the world. Seven thousand people were seated comfortably inside the church celebrating a Mass that took 128 years to arrive. From the outside you can see the construction cranes and towers of the church from miles away. Antoni Gaudi wanted to make amends to God for the sins of the modern world. He was a devote Catholic.
