Want to see how Gaudí’s ultimate place of worship will look once it’s finished? The construction of the cathedral won’t be finished until 2026 – but luckily we have an animated video of the finished Sagrada Familia! And after watching the video you’re probably wondering how they’ll finish all that in 10 years. That’s why we also added a video on how the remaining six towers will be raised.

The almost finished Sagrada Familia under construction

The cathedral has been under construction since 1883

It’s been well over two centuies since Gaudí started construction of the Sagrada Familia. This is how the Sagrada will look in 2026:

 

The finished Sagrada Familia

Over 70% of the structure has been built, but the final stage is the most challenging part of  the work. At 172,5 meters tall, the Sagrada Familia will be the biggest church in the world. The team of engineers and architects working on this huge structure came up with state-of-the-art techniques to build another six towers. Watch the video below to see how they’ll erect the towers:
