The Sagrada Familia Church ceiling creates a fascinating composition in this photograph. From this angle, the roof almost looks like a wasp hive. Indeed, there are many crevices and holes with beautiful detail in them.

The Sagrada Familia Church ceiling creates a fascinating composition in this photograph. At the bottom, the incredible colored glass of the window comes alive when the sunlight shines through. From this angle, the roof almost looks like a wasp hive. Indeed, there are many crevices and holes with beautiful detail in them. The Sagrada Familia Church ceiling is something you can look at for hours. You always will find something new interesting in the details.

The Sagrada Familia Church has been under construction for over a century. When completed, it will have taken longer to build than the Egyptian Pyramids and only 50 years less than the Great Wall of China. Now that is quite incredible. Although it is still not complete, in 1984 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is famous for the tall towers reaching out of the building. Altogether, the Sagrada Familia Church will have 18 towers at the end. All of them have a significant meaning and purpose. 12 of the towers will represent the apostles, f4 will represent the evangelists, 1 will represent the Virgin Mary, and of course, the highest one in the middle will display Jesus Christ. Interestingly, the church’s design is to be 1 meter less tall than Montjuïc, the mountain. It is the highest point in Barcelona. The creator of the church believed that nothing human-made should ever be as high as God’s work. Hence why they designed the church to be 1 meter less high.
