Temple of the Sagrada Familia
Sagrada Familia or the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia was begun in 1882 by public subscription. A year later Gaudí became director of the project, a post he would hold for more than 40 years until his death in 1926. After the completion of ParcGüell in 1911, he vowed that his architecture would not be devoted to secular aims. His commitment to this project is indicated as well by the fact that he lived in a studio on the site. "He was assisted by architects Berenguer, Rubió, Jujol, Canaleta and Ràfols, and in the last stage, by Sugrañes and Quintana; these last continued with the work after his death in 1926, until the towers of the Nativity facade were completed. After the Civil War, progress continued under Quintana, Puig i Boada and Bonet Garí, with the help of Bergós, Martinell and Dapena. In most recent decades, it has been Cardoner and Bonet Armengol assisted by architects Margarit, Buixadé and Gómez".
Work continued on the church based on Gaudí's general plan and studies. Unlike many churches, it 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 (note the cranes and scaffolding in various photographs below) and it is anybody's guess when it will be completed. It 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.

Issued by Republic of Palau limited edition of just 2.500 pieces in the world, this coin is second in series of Mineral Art which will show various mineral stones used in art and architecture!
Precisely struck from a massive 2oz of .999 fine antiqued silver, the designs found on this majestic, imposing 50mm coin are defined by incredible detail. The reverse is graced with a stunning depiction of Sagrada Familia’s interior, which, like much of renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi’s work, tells of the life of Jesus and the history of the faith. The obverse is distinguished by a superb portrayal of the 18 bell towers that adorn the exterior of the picturesque church. The perfect finishing touch to a bonafide masterpiece of modern minting, each official legal tender $10 coin incorporates a genuine, vividly coloured Amber pane. With no two Amber panes the same, each coin is a truly unique work of art.
