This church is masterpiece of Gaudi. Unlike many churches, SAGRADA FAMILIA survived during the Spanish Civil War, when many churches were burned; it was and is seen as a kind of symbol for the city of Barcelona. Although it is not the cathedral of Barcelona (which dates from the 13th century), it is sometimes called Barcelona's third cathedral. It is still unfinished today and it is anyone's guess when it will be completed. For tourists convenience there are many hotels in Barcelona in that area. Also SAGRADA FAMILIA is a combination of Modernista elements and a unique version of the Gothic style--seen primarily in its height, use of rose windows and arches, triple portals, and architectural sculpture.

Does anybody know how I can get permissions to use this image of Sagrada Familia in an article I'm writing for a book? If so, please contact me at: daniel.dennett@tufts.edu
I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer.
