133 years ago the architect Antoni Gaudí began to build the Sagrada Família, a pharaonic work that is expected to culminate in the year 2026. Currently, the works focus on the construction of the six central towers: the dedicated to the Virgin Mary, located in the apse and already built 60 meters, and the four Evangelists towers that reach 135 meters high and surrounded the tower of Jesus, located right on the Cruise Room .
“The four-armed cross atop the tower of Christ will be the highest point of the Sagrada Familia reaching 172.5 meters. Is slightly less than the Montjuïc following the desire to enjoy God’s creation failing “explains Faulí. But it will not be until 2020 that will see a radical change in the physiognomy of the Temple, although after 2017 may begin to sense.
The building of the sacristy, the new 2015
One of the more visible this year is the sacristy, a building located on the mountain side as though the final stage. This is the first part of the Holy Family on the street that leads directly, specifically the streets Provence and Sardinia. “The sacristy is important because Gaudí’s original model, a guide that would be essential to build in the future, the towers that he had drawn the shots” explains Faulí. This building will be part of a larger set made another sacristy, the Baptistery and the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament of Penance and that will be placed in other corners. All of them will be joined by a cloister.
Other new features include the completion of the second porch of the porch of the Passion facade, with 8 columns made the mountain side of the 18 planned as well as the restoration of the pinnacle of the tower of St. Thomas, also in the same façade . And the restoration are and will be continuing to keep a pharaonic work.
