Sagrada Familia is not completed. We’ll see it in full beauty only in 2026 as it is said on billboard inside the church. However even now it takes time to see all the exterior details. Numerous sculptures and decorative elements adorn the church. Pretty much the same impression I had by seeing Strasbourg Cathedral.
