Perhaps the most recognizable urban feature of Barcelona, the Sagrada Famlia, begun in 1882, remains under construction to this day. Famed architect Antoni Gaud assumed supervision of the project in 1883 and became its official architect in 1891, working tirelessly on the church's progress until his death in 1926.
