What’s the specialty of Sagrada Familia actually? Antoni Gaudi got all the ideas of the structures from nature, such as leaves, flowers, stems and etc. It is used to implement on inner roof design, outside design, tip of the roof (outside) and all.

The worker there, works 6 days a week and almost 10hours per day to finish up the construction work. 1 of the critical issues faced for the construction work is the fund is fully by donation, no government support at all. There are places for visitors to donate money if the visitors wanted. And yeah, pay to enter. =) tour-guide-headset-unit is provided so that self-guide tour would be fine and great. Interesting right? get a chance to get yourself there and donate some money too! *teehee*
