This spellbinding creation by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí interprets the Gothic cathedral through Gaudí’s visionary, modernist style. Study the striking sculpted decoration of the exterior portals, the dreamlike interior with its columns fashioned as stylized trees, and the powerful Christian iconography of this unique melding of the traditional and the radically new.
