This is an incredible building. Still being constructed and (potentially) schdeuled for completion in about five years time, but still well worth a visit now. From the outside, the Gaudiesque towers reach high above you and the more you look, the more detail you will pick out in the finer details of the stonework. Inside, the Basilica is huge, with incredibly high ornate ceilings and a choir balcony so high that it would scare many people. The interior styling is very different to any other Cathedral or Basilica that I have visited. The stained glass windows that surround the building change colour beautifully, from blue-tint in the East wall through to red tint in the West. Towards the altar, there are windows looking down into a crypt where I believe there is Gaudi's tomb just visible. It's the scale that is most impressive, and when completed it will be even more stunning with the top tower eventually reaching 170 meters. We had an audio tour as part of a group booking and this made a massive difference, allowing us to understand and see so much more than just passing through.
