Weekly Photo Challenge: Light

¨Let there be light Now, where could that be more fitting than in a church, right?

Light seeping in through the stained glass windows at La Sagrada Família adds another ethereal dimension to this very unique church. Started in 1882, this massive architectural project with intricately carved facades and sculptured towers, is projected to be completed by the year 2026. That year will also mark the centennial of the death of its architect, Antoni Gaudí, who was pivotal in the growth of Modernism school of design and architecture. The building work continues to this day by the support of anonymous donations and ticket sales. It’s a design masterpiece and a must-see if you visit Barcelona. The official website has a wealth of information to help out visitors.
