SAGRADA FAMILIA BASILICA
A large Roman Catholic church, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The groundbreaking of the site was in 1882, but still the church remains under construction. Gaudí’s work on the building is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in November 2010 Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica, as distinct from a cathedral, which must be the seat of a bishop.
CAMP NOU STADIUM
Home stadium of FC Barcelona since its completion in 1957. With a seating capacity of around 99.000 it is the largest stadium in Spain and Europe, and the second largest in capacity soccer stadium in the world.
A renowned building located in the center of Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. A remodel of a previously built house, it was redesigned in 1904 by Gaudí and has been refurbished several times after that. The original name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), as it has a visceral, skeletal organic quality.
