Verwonder aan Gaudi se meesterstuk, die pragtige Sagrada Familia katedraal

Die ervaring

Dit is feitlik onmoontlik om die lewendige, kuns-verweef stad van Barcelona te besoek en nie in die boeiende wêreld van Gaudi (Antoni Gaudi i Cornet), die skepper van Spanje se mees bekende monument getrek word: La Sagrada Familia.

Your first taste of the historical significance held by this man and his work will be the hundreds of miniature replicas of La Sagrada familia, which are crammed onto shelves of the gift shops lining the main street of Barcelona: La Rambla. Apart from every hostel and hotel offering a “Gaudi Tour,” there were also the more in-depth and (dare I say more accurate) historical Sagrada Familia tours for those willing to spend a bit more for a museum-quality tour dedicated to Gaudi. You should be able to find a free walking tour led by a Catalan native very well versed and highly informed in both the man Gaudi and the history of his architectural influence in Catalonia (which is one of many autonomous provinces in Spain, and includes Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona). Most tours commence in Placa Reial, where Gaudi’s first commissioned work stands in the form of a lamppost. Even in his early work, his distinct, neo-gothic and nature-inspired style is apparent. The Gaudi tours will lead you to many, very impressive structures designed by this revolutionary architect; but non as awe-inspiring as the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família.

Die meeste toere sluit af met die basiliek i Tempel Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia in 'n hoogs klimaks manier. By die verlaat van die metro stop vernoem na die meesterstuk, die volle glorie van hierdie katedraal is in sig. Konstruksie van die basiliek i Tempel Expiatori de la Sagrada Família begin in 1882, en Gaudi het oor kreatiewe en argitektoniese leierskap in 1883 na die vervaardiging van 'n klein skaal model van die lewendige en kleurvolle gebou. Na sy dood in 1926, het die historiese samelewing baie moeite gegaan om te verseker dat die Sagrada Familia katedraal is gebou volgens Gaudi se oorspronklike visie. Die hele struktuur bestaan ​​uit agtien klok torings, wat elk 'n beduidende bedrag van die Rooms-Katolieke geloof, insluitend Jesus en Maria.

Gaudi had a distinct plan for every stone which made up the building, and this is partly the reason why it has taken decades to build (the estimated date of completion is 2026). The colourful facades and beautifully carved exterior walls tell the history of the Catholic faith and of the life of Jesus Christ. As you walk around the outside of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, each turn reveals a new story and each tower is seemingly more intricate then the last. The style could be best described as a combination of modern gothic design with a clear inspiration drawn from nature, giving the cathedral an organic quality. Inside, the building is just as impressive. Although still under construction, the interior has a magical and organic aura which makes you feel as though you are inside a giant living creature. The colourful, kaleidoscopic stained-glass windows cast beautiful designs on the white supporting columns, which bare resemblance to tall palm trees. Though Sagrada Familia tickets cost about 12 euro to enter, it is well worth it as you can watch the stone masons carefully carving each stone in the fashion Gaudi himself had instructed. As Sagrada Familia was also deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980, it has gained huge popularity with tourists and history buffs alike. To stand in front of this structure and imagine the hours of painstakingly intricate stone masonry which went into this grand creation, is a truly awe-inspiring experience that cannot be missed.
