The Sagrada Familia is a masterpiece in progress, and one of Spain's most visited tourist sites. It's a design by Antoni Gaudí, a Catalan architect who worked on this project for almost 40 years until his death in 1926. The construction of the cathedral began in 1882 and still as yet not finished. It will have 18 towers, of which the central tower of Jesus will be the tallest of them all, with a total height of 170 meters. The design also calls for three grand façades, depicting Nativity (East façade), Passion (West façade) and Glory (South façade). The on-going construction of this cathedral is funded by the proceeds of tickets sold to the visitors of the cathedral and by private donations. The planned completion year of 2026 will coincide with the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death. When finished, this will be the pièce de résistance of an artist who had already left a huge artistic footprint in Barcelona.
