The construction of the Expiatory Temple of he Holy Family, the most famous building by Antoni Gaudí and one of the most emblematic in Barcelona, was started in 1882, but it was not until the following year that the great architect took charge of it. The temple consists of a Latin cross plan and a rectangular cloister surrounding it. Its highlights are certainly the Nativity, Passion and Glory façades (the latter being the main one, not built yet, and to which access will be granted through a staircase that will cross over Mallorca street); these façades are topped each by four belltowers, representing the 12 apostles. From the apse also a tower rises topped with a star representing the Virgin Mary; and from the central crossing rises the highest tower, topped with a four-armed cross dedicated to Jesus Christ, surrounded by four smaller towers for the four evangelists. None of these towers are built yet, but it is expected that around 2015 the interior of the temple will be definitely finished.
