The hundred plus year old master piece of Antoni Gaudi that is still under construction. This Basilica is as large as a city block and towers the city of Barcelona. The building is spotable from far away, standing so tall and large.

The place is usually very crowded owing to its popularity, and it certainly does not disappoint. The whole building is a price of art. The intricate Fresco's, the tall ceilings, the multi colored glass windows that lights up the interior in different colors depending on the direction of the sunlight, it's a great place to visit.

The cryot of Antoni Gaudi is located inside the basilica, you can basically see it from a corner near the altar but public has no access to it. Also the building has a viewing deck on one of the towers but you have to pay additional money to have access.
