Every tourist-worthy city boasts its synonymous landmark; London sports Tower Bridge, Paris has the Eiffel Tower, and New York dazzles with the Statue of Liberty. In the same fashion, Barcelona has its awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia.
The basilica is an icon of the nation, a symbol of the Catholic church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s still… unfinished?

That’s right - today, more than 135 years after the cornerstone of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia was laid, it continues to be surrounded by cranes; it continues to cost the government millions of dollars, AND it’s existence is entirely illegal.

Despite its chaotic history and its unfinished facade, the beautiful basilica remains a marvelous example of Gothic architecture, drawing in tens of thousands of tourists every day.

So why did it take so long to build? What makes it illegal? And what’s the Barcelona government doing about it? Stay tuned to find out.
