Of Barcelona: Their Famous Church

A lot of European cities have at least one church of great renown. Some have quite a few. Barcelona's is Gaudi's "Sagrada Familia." Perhaps you've heard of it. (Photo credit above to The Lovely Katherine who said the staff photographer was facing the wrong way when the light was best. -ed.)

It's not finished. Your correspondent hadn't realized until visiting just how not finished it is. It's supposed to get a lot taller.

It's an impressive piece of architecture on the outside. On the inside, it's a construction site that you pay $20 to see. I mean, it's an impressive construction site, but it's not as nice as the outside. The museum in the basement is the best part.

Wow! It wasn't finished when I was there 42 years ago...I really am surprised that it still isn't finished.
