Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

As far as I’m concerned, La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s still unfinished cathedral in Barcelona, is the greatest masterpiece of all time. I visited it last fall and must confess I was totally unprepared for its grandeur. When I walked in and looked up, I gasped and inexplicably burst into tears! I don’t quite understand what happened. I’m not religious, nor am I prone to public displays of emotion. Yet, there I was, shedding tears in the middle of the crowd at La Sagrada Familia. I was completely overtaken with emotion by the organic beauty of Gaudi’s magnificent masterpiece. Wiping my tears, I took pictures that in no way do justice to that architectural and artistic gem.

But I found this absolutely amazing HD video of the inauguration of La Sagrada Familia, which shows it in all its splendor, every detail, every angle, inside and out. The images and the music are fantastic. They’ll make you gasp for sure. Let me know if you cry. I, of course, cried again…
