Architectural Features and Details of Sagrada Familia
How to reach Sagrada Familia?
It is easily accessible from both L2 and L5 metro lines. Nearest stations are Encants and Monumental.
What can be improved at Sagrada Familia?
- Public amenities. But since it is a church/cathedral, we can’t expect many public amenities. Although it functions more as a tourist destination. And you can plan a wedding here too!
Review of Sagrada Familia:
“Sagrada Familia is an architectural marvel and UNESCO world heritage site. Known for its art noveau and gothic style, it is the most popular tourist destination in Barcelona. A landmark across Europe and the world.
A construction horizon spanning over a century, it is still work in progress. A combination of varying materials, textures and free-flowing forms are amalgamated in a unique manner, quite unlike any other building in the world!
Distinct levels in the cathedral are marked according to their specific purposes. The lowest level houses the museum of Antonio Gaudi. It has original renderings and prototypes of parts of the cathedral based on the original design concept.
One can find plenty of eateries around the cathedral. It is completely immersed in the urban neighbourhood setting and sees a large footfall of tourists round the year”
