21 Top Sagrada Familia Pictures the Largest Spain Church

We offer you a collection of wonderful pictures of the Sagrada Familia Church in Spanish, meaning La Sagrada Família or Holy Family Church. It is a Catholic Church, one of the largest churches built on the European continent, located in Barcelona, ​​Spain. Laying the foundation stone for its construction in 1882 and the project continues to this day. In 2007, it was selected as one of the twelve treasures of Spain.

 

Sagrada Familia

The Basílica I Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (Catalan: [bəˈzilikə ðə lə səˈɣɾaðə fəˈmiljə]; The Sagrada Familia (Spanish: Basilica de la Sagrada Familia; ‘Basilica of the Holy Family) is an incomplete minor basilica in Barcelona’s Eixample neighborhood, Catalonia, Spain, and is presently the biggest unfinished Roman Catholic church. Antoni Gaud (1852-1926), a Catalan architect, designed the structure, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pope Benedict XVI dedicated the church and designated it a minor basilica on November 7, 2010.

The building of the Sagrada Familia began on March 19, 1882, under the direction of architect Francisco de Paula del Villar. When Villar quit in 1883, Gaud took over as lead architect and transformed the project with his architectural and engineering style, which combined Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau features. Gaud worked on the project for the rest of his life and is buried in the crypt. When he died in 1926, less than a fourth of the project was completed.

The building of the Sagrada Familia, which was entirely funded by private contributions, moved slowly and was hampered by the Spanish Civil War. In July 1936, rebels set fire to the crypt and stormed into the workshop, partially destroying Gaud’s original blueprints, sketches, and plaster models, resulting in 16 years of effort piecing together the master model’s shards. In the 1950s, construction restarted with sporadic progress. Since then, technological advancements like computer-aided design and computerized numerical control (CNC) have allowed for speedier development, and construction crossed the midway in 2010.

 

10 Spires

However, some of the project’s most difficult obstacles remain, including the construction of 10 additional spires, each representing a significant Biblical person from the New Testament. The structure was supposed to be finished by 2026, the centennial of Gaud’s death. However, this has since been pushed back because of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The basilica has a long history of dividing Barcelona residents: over the initial possibility that it might compete with Barcelona’s cathedral, over Gaud’s design itself, the possibility that work after Gaud’s death disregarded his design, and the 2007 proposal to build a tunnel nearby as part of Spain’s high-speed rail link to France, potentially disrupting its stability.

The Sagrada Familia has been described as “the most astonishing personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages” by art critics Rainer Zerbst, and Paul Goldberger as “the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages.” The basilica is not the Archdiocese of Barcelona’s cathedral church; that honor is held by the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia.

Background

The Basilica of the Holy Family was inspired by a bookseller, Josep Maria Bocabella, who founded the Asociación Espiritual de Devoto’s de San José (Spiritual Association of Devotees of St. Joseph).

After visiting the Vatican in 1872, Bocabella returned to Italy with the idea of constructing a cathedral inspired by the Loreto basilica. The church’s apse crypt was commenced on 19 March 1882, on the feast of St. Joseph, following the design of the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, whose aim was for a conventional Gothic revival church.

The crypt was finished prior to Villar’s retirement on March 18, 1883, when Antoni Gaud took over responsibility for its design, which he drastically altered. Although Gaudi began construction on the chapel in 1883, he was not named Architect Director until 1884. [wikipedia]

Construction

The new masonry of the Sagrada Familia (left) contrasts with the discolored and aged older parts (right). Gaud is alleged to have commented on the exceptionally extended building time, “My customer is not in a rush.” When Gaud died in 1926, the basilica was between 15 and 25% finished. Following Gaud’s death, construction proceeded under the leadership of his chief follower, Domènec Sugraes I Gras, until 1936, when it was stopped by the Spanish Civil War.

Catalan anarchists damaged parts of the incomplete basilica as well as Gaud’s models and workshop during the war. The current design is based on rebuilt copies of fire-damaged designs as well as recent revisions. Francesc Quintana, Isidre Puig Boada, Llus Bonet I Gari, and Francesc Cardoner have been working on the project since 1940. Carles Bugas created the lighting design.

Until 2012, the director was Jordi Bonet I Armengol, the son of Llus Bonet. Since the 1980s, he has been using computers in the design and building process. Jordi Faul I Oller [es], born in Barcelona, took over as a project architect in 2012. Executive Architect and Researcher Mark Burry of New Zealand is in charge. The spectacular façades are adorned with sculptures by J. Busquets, Etsuro Sotoo, and the controversial Josep Maria Subirachs.

Since the completion of the central nave vaulting in 2000, the major responsibilities have been the building of the transept vaults and apse. As of 2006, construction was primarily focused on the crossing and supporting structure for Jesus Christ’s main spire, as well as the southern enclosure of the central nave, which would become the Glory façade.

The cathedral occupies the same location as the Sagrada Familia Schools building, which Gaud created in 1909 for the children of construction workers. The structure, which was relocated from the site’s eastern to its southern corner in 2002, is presently holding an exhibition. [wikipedia]
