Video reveals final design of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia
MADRID (AFP) - It has been under construction for more than 130 years and there is another 13 to go, but the world has been given a glimpse of what Barcelona's Sagrada Familia will look like when finally completed.
A 3-D video has been released by the Sagrada Familia Foundation, the body responsible for overseeing the building project, which shows the ornate and gigantic cathedral in 2026, the date when the last brick will be laid.
That year will also be the centenary of the death of the building's architect, Antoni Gaudi, who was killed aged 73 after being stuck by a tram in 1926.
Currently, some 65 per cent of the famous architectural masterpiece has been built, including two facades, representing the birth and the Passion of Christ, as well as eight of the 12 towers dedicated to the apostles.
