SPAIN ~ Barcelona- Sagrada Familia - UNESCO ~

Fantastic and impressive night view...Barcelona's top tourist destination... Thanks a lot  Johan for this great holiday postcard!! ♥
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain.It is also Europe's largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea. Barcelona is the 16th-most-visited city in the world and the fifth most visited in Europe after Paris, London, Berlin and Rome, with several million tourists every year.

The Sagrada Família, is a massive, privately-funded Roman Catholic church that has been under construction in Barcelona, Catalonia, since 1882 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026. It is considered as the master-work of renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).

Although not finished, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in November 2010 was consecrated and made a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XXVI.
