Back to the Future or crazy shooting at Sagrada Familia during its possible Grand Opening in the 2020’s... by 


Figure out the situation, I’m sure pretty known to you… You fly through thousands miles in different country just for looking at some great architectural creation. You think how you’ll make great shots of this building. You dreaming about it even during your sleep and… you’re there. But what you see…
Your dream is under construction. No great shots, just great frustration…

It’s what exactly happened to me when I arrived to Barcelona, to my dream, to Sagrada Familia. This piece of art, probably the best creation by Gaudi, was covered by construction stuff and between the towers of the cathedral I could see just construction cranes…

La Sagrada Familia is probably the most famous building in Barcelona and one of the most well known in Spain. Gaudí worked 43 years on the construction of the church, and the building is still not finished (the construction work is supposed to end sometime in the 2020’s). La Sagrada Familia will have 18 towers representing the 12 apostles, the 4 evangelists, Virgin Mary and Jesus. The Tower of Jesus will be the highest: it will rise from the center of the church and go up 170 meters – the towers that have been finished are 109 meters high.

So… I figured out how it will be during that crazy day, when will be Grand Opening. I can imagine it because I’ve been in Barcelona when Barcelona socker team won the World Cup. Guess it will be crazy shooting around (just by photo cameras, I hope)…
