Sagrada familia, Barcelona

Here is a shot I took back in March on a weekend trip to Barcelona. I had seen many shots of this cathedral before and I always wondered what was so special about it other then it is yet another Gaudi building. I have to say that in person it is VERY impressive. I have seen many of the worlds great religious structures and this one is one of the best. Hope you like the photo and C&C is always welcome. cheers :smile:

Here is the rest of my Barcelona shots Facebook - Photobucket

Thanks everybody. It isn't a cathedral, I have a habit of calling all large gothic churches cathedrals although that isn't correct. Thanks though.

Cathedral= church where is placed the chair (in Latin, cathedra) of the bishop.
From today, it is officially a Minor Basilica (=big and important church). Pope Benedict XVI has just consecrated it by a special ceremonial. If they want to make it a cathedral, they need to steal the bishop's chair from the nearby La Seu cathedral.
