Picture Postcard – Barcelona Spain
Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia is an unfinished masterpiece after 132 years. The final stage of construction is beginning. The plan is to finish in 2026 – 100th anniversary of Gaudi’s death.
The changing styles of the architects contributing to the project makes it possible to find details that will appeal to all somewhere in the building. Created by sculptor Josep Maria Subirachs, this minimalist, modernist detail of the Passion exterior called The Flagellation of Jesus Christ is on the rear facade of the church.
