Out of the Jurisdiction: Sagrada Familia

Everyone who goes to Barcelona goes to see Antoni Gaudi's cathedral, La Sagrada Familia.
I went on Monday (the day before it was evacuated after some rumors of 
planned terrorist activity that didn't occur)

And everyone takes photographs of the cathedral, too, so the world is swarming with images.
 I hesitated about adding to the photographic clutter.


I'm not sure my own contributions will be especially noteworthy, but since I was there on the
Catalan Independence Day, the Catalan flag was more conspicuous that it probably is on other days.

A work of art in and of itself.

I dream of photographing that place. I probably won't get there but I enjoy the photographs from others. I want more Jack!

I love looking at photos of this place. It is one of those unbelievable creations with something to see at every turn.

Feel free to add all the photographs of the Sagrada Familia you like. I never tire looking at this amazing building. We visited it twice while we were in Barcelona, and I also added to the clutter of photos.

I'd love to see this building, though as you say, it's so much photographed that I'm afraid the reality might be a disappointment. I'm glad no-one has yet succeeded in blowing it up, anyway. Especially with you in it!
