The parking lots near the Sagrada Família also tend to be full at peak times and even more so at times of year when there are more intense tourist visits. In spring and summer thousands of people go to visit the Basilica of the Sagrada Família.

At present, 70% of the work on the church has been completed and the construction board is aiming to finish all the architecture by 2026 (there is still a lot of sculptural work to be done). Bearing in mind that construction began in 1882, that would be 144 years of work.
Between 2015 and 2016 much progress was made in the construction, with the completion of the west sacristy, the upper portico of the Passion façade and many parts of the interior of the Basilica.

Antoni Gaudí is one of the most universal figures of Catalan culture and one of the most internationally renowned architects. He was born in Reus in 1852 and died in a tragic accident in which he was run over by a tram. The procession of his coffin travelled all over Barcelona until it reached the Sagrada Familia, in whose crypt he is buried, in the chapel of the Virgen del Carmen.
If visiting the Sagrada Familia you feel an attraction for Gaudí's work and for Catalan Modernism, you are in luck: during your visit to Barcelona you can enjoy many of Gaudí's works, there is even the so-called Modernism Route, which passes, among other places, through Parc Güell, by Gaudí himself, the Palau de la Música or the Hospital de Sant Pau, by Domènech i Montaner.
