Ignoring the religious aspect of this building, whenever I see structures like this it reminds me how awesome engineering is. The basic drawings for this building and concept to make it was developed back in the late 1800's but it's still a rational that those designs are still being used today to complete this building.

The Sagrada Familia is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, it is also a UNESCO site. Construction started on this church in 1882 and it was not clear when construction will complete. But I like this aspect of the church, what I saw during my visit will be different next time I have the opportunity to visit. When I showed up, the line to get in wrapped half way around the block on the north east side of the church. The time waiting in line was just over 20 minutes, not as bad as it looked. When I showed up it was also cloudy outside, but when I turned the corner and got closer to the ticket office the clouds cleared, it was nice.
