Segrada Familia



This masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi, known as "God's Architect", is called Segrada Familia.  It is a Roman Catholic Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain.  It has been a work in progress with Gaudi dieing in 1926.  Construction continues and is scheduled to be complete in 2026.  There is nothing in the world quite like it.  I am fascinated and intrigued and hope to visit someday.  Gaudi designed the columns throughout to mirror trees and branches.  Which is such a human thing to do.   Have you ever been in a wooded area, surrounded by trees, only to experience a feeling of a holy place?  Of being in a living cathedral?    With the trees and branches reaching up towards the sky and clouds?..........
