A Time-Lapse Look at What Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Will Soon Look Like

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/11/15

The restoration of Gaudi's famous cathedral is in its final stage

In 10 more years, the restoration of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona will be complete, after more than 133 years of construction. This time-lapse video shows the how the final stage will go and what the famous cathedral, designed by Antoni Gaudi, will look like when it’s done. Thirty percent of the church still needs to be constructed, including a 564-foot central tower, which will make the Sagrada Familia the tallest religious structure in Europe.

Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. —Psalm 36:5
