The tallest cathedral in the world is rising in Barcelona, Spain. Antoni Gaudi's "Familia Sagrada" offers gorgeous organic forms in place of the traditionally gothic architecture found in many other churches. Definitely look it up as it is most fantastic.

La Sagrada Familia. The church has stained glass on various windows and openings. The ones done by the stained glass maker Joan Vila-Grau since 1999 are outstanding; they are made of panes of different colours fixed with lead and concrete. In these pieces of stained glass, Vila-Grau symbolises specific themes through the masses of colour.

Despite it is unfinshed, the Sagrada Familia is the most emblematic monument in Barcelona and the best example of Gaudi's work. Loads of tourists visit it during the day, but few are the others that contemplate it at night: Surprisingly, when sun goes down, the cathedral becomes a golden temple reflected on the black waters. A unique spectacle!

    Sagrada Familia is not a cathedral. The cathedral of Barcelona is the magnificent church in the Barrio Antiguo properly called the cathedral since it is where the Archbishop of Barcelona has his seat (cathedra). Sagrada Familia is properly called a expiratory church or temple. This was Gaudi’s intention in conceiving the church. He never intended it to be another cathedral. Each diocese has one church designated as the cathedral!
