No pensava veure mai aquest sostre finalitzat...

Aquí mirem la Façana del Naixement des de l'interior. Recordo la primera vegada que vaig visitar la Sagrada Família als anys 80, i els balconets que ara donen al transepte i al bosc de columnes, s'obrien al cel i els núvols... més o menys com en aquesta foto:


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.




Here we are looking east from the center of the nave, to the interior side of the Nativity Façade, the first built. It was the only part Gaudí saw built before his death in 1927.


I remember visiting the same place and above this gothic windows there was only the sky...


The catalan basilica of La Sagrada Família (The Holy Family) is THE global icon of Barcelona. After more than a century building it (contruction work began in 1882), 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.


I'm sure JRR Tolkien whould have loved this!


Here you can see more or less this same side open to the elements in the 80's, as I first saw it:
