Un pessebre en pedra / Nativity in stone

Vista en detall de la Façana del Naixement, l'única que construí Antoni Gaudí en persona.

 

La Sagrada Família per fi té un interior acabat: és una meravella, el fruit del geni únic d'Antoni Gaudí. Falten les paraules per descriure-ho.

======================================================================

 

This is part of the Nativity Façade of the basilica of the Sagrada Família, in Barcelona.

 

The catalan basilica of La Sagrada Família (The Holy Family) is THE global icon of Barcelona. After more than a century building it, in 2011 the interior was finished and consecrated by the pope Benedict XVI. It's an incredible structure, fruit of the unique mind of Antoni Gaudí. The ceilings look like a spaceship, and the nave and columns, like a palmtree forest. Work began in 1882 and should be completed in 2026, like the medieval cathedrals of old.
