Photographer's Note

Sagrada familia du celebre sculpteur Gaudi.

Sagrada familia of the celebre Gaudi sculptor.

In 1882, Josep Mr. Bocabella had bought grounds to build a temple dedicated to the Holy Family. Dissensions emerged with the first architect, Francesc of Paula Villar, and work was then entrusted to Gaudí, which modified the original project and made it more ambitious.
She was in competition to become one of the Seven new wonders of the world. During the last years of its life, Gaudí did not work and lived practically only for the Temple of Sagrada Família and, when he died, he left very many plans, projects and outlines (the plans and models unfortunately almost all were destroyed during the war of Spain, ten years after the death of Gaudí).
