Development on the church commenced properly above a hundred yrs back in 1882 underneath architect Francisco de Paula del Villar who resigned a 12 months later on, and none other then Antoni Gaudi took above the challenge.
Ahead of his demise in 1926 Gaudi as soon as said that his customer was in no hurry.
