The Never-ending story

April 9, 2016

The cranes hovering above a few of the eighteenP1020098 towers of the Sagrada Familia tell the never-ending story of Barcelona’s unique cathedral.

First conceived in 1866 and continued by Gaudi in 1883, the building is as ornate on the outside as Rosslyn chapel near Edinburgh is on the inside.

As for the interior I can only imagine the wonders within as an endless queue of visitors snakes around the cathedral in concentric coils from dawn to dusk.

It is possible to speed up the entry process by purchasing a timed ticket in advance but there are many more inspiring sights to see in this mind-blowing city.

It took me all afternoon to absorb the sculpted walls, pillars and ceilings of tiny Rosslyn so I could be missing for a whole week if I were to enter the portals of the Sagrada Familia.
