About the book

Considered a landmark in the history of architecture, the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is Antoni Gaudí's great masterpiece, who used his unlimited imagination and his capacity for innovation to create a site of revolutionary design loaded with symbolism.

Obsessed with the idea of creating the perfect temple, Gaudí dedicated the last 43 years of his life to the construction of the Sagrada Familia, in such a way that the monument constitutes a compendium of all the technical solutions developed by the architect over his long professional career. Likewise, the temple reflects the indepth liturgical knowledge of Gaudí, who through a detailed iconographic programme, set about transforming Sagrada Familia into a great Bible made of stone.

This book on Sagrada Familia, published by Dosde, analyses the innovative structure and the deep allegorical significance of the temple, as well as its origins and evolution. Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2005, the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia has converted into the most emblematic building of Barcelona, the city in which Gaudí developed most of his work.
