An official building permit has been issued for the unfinished Barcelona church designed by architect Antoni Gaudí 137 years after construction started on La Sagrada Familia Basilica.
Barcelona City Hall says it granted the current builders a work permit that is valid through Y 2026. The builders say that is enough time to finish raising the landmark Roman Catholic church’s central towers.
Barcelona officials say the city will be paid US$5.2-M in fees under an agreement negotiated with a foundation devoted to completing and preserving La Sagrada Familia.
The Basilica’s 1st stone was laid in Y 1882, but Barcelona officials say there was no record showing a construction license ever was granted although one was requested in Y 1885.
However, work on the popular tourist destination never stopped.
Have a terrific weekend.
