The construction of the incredible Sagrada Familia temple started in 1882, when Gaudi agreed to work on a project for a new and magnificent church in Barcelona.

It is still not finished. In 2013 about 65% of the temple had been completed. It is hoped that the church will be finally finished in 2026, which will be 100 years after Gaudi died.


The current lead architect is Jordi Faulí who leads a team of 40 construction workers. Faulí is the ninth generation of architects to lead the building work.

It is expected that he will be the final architect, when this magnificent temple is finally finished 144 years after the building work started.
