Fascinating. . .

Barcelona holds an unmistakable figure of a church, a building seen by some as supremely transcendent and by others as hideous.  I have never been to Spain and have only seen it in video and photos.  What I do see is a fascinating story of vision and faith. Antoni Gaudí’s famous Church of the Holy Family (‘Sagrada Família’ in Catalan) was as much an obsession as an act of faith.  The story of the construction is itself both interesting and fascinating.  You may love it and you may hate it but you cannot deny how compelling the story was and is!

You are evading the question, LOL - how do YOU like it?
And how does anyone pray in such a place? It's like Saint Peter's in Rome: too much eye candy.
