馬拉松路上的100個名建築 5. 巴塞隆那聖家教堂 (with English following)

St family5. 巴塞隆那聖家教堂

跑巴塞隆那馬拉松,原因只有一個:跑在馬路的中心,欣賞這座鬼斧神工的教堂。

聖家教堂由1882年開始興建,由著名建築師Antoni Gaudi(1852 – 1926)設計,預計2026年將落成,建築期橫跨三世紀。

這種仍在建築的狀態,反而充滿粗獷而躍動的生命力。

【100 Great Architecture along Marathon Route】

5. La Sagrada Familia

This awesome church, located at 16km of the marathon route, was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí(1852–1926).

Construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882 and at the time of Gaudi’s death at age 73 in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. Sagrada Família’s construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s.

Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death.
