Random Fact of the Day – Spain

Standard

SpainRFD

The Sagrada Família, is a minor basilica (Roman Catholic Church), located in Barcelona, Spain. This Church has a Unique Architecture mixed with Gothic and Art Nouveau styles, which was designed by Spanish Architect, Antoni Gaudi. I wonder if this is where we get the term “gaudy” from, which means “extravagantly bright or showy, typically so as to be tasteless.” However the Church may be ostentatious, but it is very beautiful, regardless if it is still not complete. That is right. This Church has been under construction for over 130 years. Construction began in 1882, and it is not expected to be completed until at least 2026. Definitely on my bucket list!
