BARCELONA - SAGRADA FAMILIA

Number 14 on the list
La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s unfinished cathedral is the largest unfinished Roman Catholic church in the world. Antoni Gaudí, one of the most famous figures of Catalan culture and world architecture, spent over 40 years designing the Temple of the Sagrada Familia.
