Sail the Iberian Peninsula - 2019

Antoni Gaudi received the commission to design and construct a special church for Barcelona and he began the process in 1882. He worked for 40 years on the project, until he died in 1926 and it is still unfinished. His detailed plans and studies are available still and the current architects and builders are using those instructions to complete the church. In 2012, the church was designated a minor basilica. The goal now is to finish the building by 2026 in time for a papal visit.

The church looks to me like a gigantic melting mountain with icicles and snow drifting down the exterior walls.
