Don't judge by appearances
A photograph, from the photograph, of the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
Tied to the history of Catalonia for 138 years, La Sagrada Familia is undoubtedly the most important building and the most visited monument in the city of Barcelona.
And it was there, in 1882 when the first stone of one of the most spectacular basilicas in the world was laid, attached to the genius and tragic destiny of its architect, Antoni Gaudí.
Run over by a tram in the street of Cortes in Barcelona, and due to his appearance confused by a beggar, Gaudí died in 1926 in part, due to not having been treated in time for his injuries.
No one will be able to know for sure how long Gaudí himself would have taken to finish his work, if he had not died in this tragic accident.
But symbolically, having judged by appearances cost the city of Barcelona a century, since supposedly the culmination of the Sagrada Familia is scheduled for the year 2026, precisely 100 years after the death of its architect.
Due to its complexity, this is by far my favorite basilica, every time I see it I feel that Gaudí had been playing with mud or wet sand on the beach when designing it.
