Dublin: 11 °C Monday 20 October, 2014

This is what Sagrada Familia will look like when it’s finished

Sure, what’s another 13 years – especially if it turns out this breathtakingly beautiful.

IT’S ONE OF the most famous religious edifices in the world and it’s still not finished 121 years after the foundation stone was laid.

The Sagrada Familia cathedral, the hoped-for masterpiece by architect and artist Antoni Gaudi, is still a work in progress but has become one of the most famous landmarks in Barcelona, Spain.

There is hope that the facade and spires will be finished by 2026, in time for the centenary of Gaudi’s death. But you don’t just have to imagine what that will look like – the Sagrada Familia Foundation has created a 3D video of how the finished exterior will appear.

It is breathtaking:
