After nearly a decade of hoping for the opportunity to visit this place, it was so very exciting to visit. This place is very special and the story of it's design and personality it's creator, Gaudi, is interesting on its own. I highly recommend researching this site before your visit to maximize your enjoyment. I watched a documentary on the history before coming, which added to the splendor. I was most impressed by the story of the bible on the exterior and the shape of the column inside. An incredible place to visit.
Simply breathtaking. Impossible to describe or capture in photos. Hands down the most extraordinary building I have ever entered. Very special place. Make sure you have enough time to do the museum below and wander through the school building. Just wonderful!
