A sculpture on Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, or often referred to as Sagrada Familia. Sagrada Familia is a massive Roman Catholic church. It has been under construction since 1882. I have been there 3 times over the last ten years.

Its a master piece of architect Antoni Gaudí and have become one of Barcelona's (and Spain's) top tourist attractions. Antoni Gaudi worked for over 40 years on Sagrada Familia project and he devoted the last 15 years of his life to it.

The Ministry of Public Works of Spain has projected the construction of a tunnel for the high speed train just under where the principal facade of the temple has to be built. The engineers and architects of the temple fears that the tunnel will affect the stability of the building.
