If the rest of Gaudi's achievements are ever forgotten about (which is unlikely), his legacy will live on in La Sagrada Familia, despite the fact that the basilica is still not finished, 80 years after Gaudi's death.

Gaudi began the Sagrada Familia project in 1883. When he died in 1926, Domenech Sugranyes continued the work. The Spanish Civil war interrupted building in 1935 and project was further affected by a fire in the crypt and in Gaudi's studio. Work recommenced in 1952.
From afar, La Sagrada Familia is a ghoulish behemoth that looks as if it is melting before your eyes. Start your Sagrada Familia experience from across the street and walk around its perimeter, taking in the sheer scale and audacity of the project. The projected spire that they intend on building in the center of the building is expected to be nearly double the height of the present highest spire.
