Sagrada Familia_09So the Sagrada Familia is one of the world’s highest religious buildings and if this is not the most magnificent work of art you’ve ever seen, then I don’t know what is. Barcelona is a place filled with wonderful architecture, and 9 times out of 10, it is by none other than Antoni Gaudi.

 

My friend Amaka and I went on an audio tour around the entire church, looking at the different edges, corners and the wonderful tessellations it possesses. We stopped a while to sit and pray at the basilica, which felt so calming because of the atmosphere we were in. Being a Christian, I just felt so happy and excited to be in such a wonderful church, however, if I went to church every Sunday, you can be sure that I would be fixated on the décor rather than the sermon. Oops!

The Sagrada Família is a church of five naves with a transept of three, forming a Latin cross. At the top of the cross there is the apse, semi-circular, which closes behind the passion, death and resurrection (Sardinia Street), and its glory present and future (Calle Mallorca).

 

Happy hump day Ribbons!
