The capital of Catalonia. Barcelona lies on the Mediterranean coast in the northeast of Spain.

The second symbol of the city and Gaudí`s most famous unfinished work is Sagrada Familia cathedral. The project "last great sanctuary of Christianity" is in the process of building over a hundred years. It is characterized by organic shapes, unusual variety of colors and elaborate decorations such as biblical texts in different languages on the doors of the cathedral.
