This is Antoni Gaudi's finest creation. It's an epic church topped with 4 spires ascending to the heavens.

Despite still being under construction, it's still very 'visit worthy'. Well, ask the 2+ million people that visit there per year.

The projected completion date is 2010 for the interior and 2030 for the exterior...and it's still the #1 tourist attraction in Barcelona! They're building this baby to last until the next millenium.
