The Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, Spain

Gaudi's masterpiece here in Barcelona is probably the most stunning religious structure I've ever been inside. I was lucky and I was given special access to a few areas only the Pope gets to visit. He has like is own "Papal Balcony" where he can kind of lord over the congregation. I suppose if you're the Pope, you just get anything you want. You're like, hey, I want my own balcony, and then the church just kinda does it for you. This cathedral broke ground way back in 1882 and they are still working on it. It’s probably taking them a while to complete this amazing behemoth because the Spanish have four-hour lunches.
