God’s Architect: Antoni Gaudi’s glorious vision

Sagrada CBS News:

During his eight years as pope, Benedict XVI carried out thousands of official duties, but only once did he travel outside Rome to bestow the Vatican’s highest honor on a church, transforming it into a basilica — a sacred place forever.

I watched this last night and it’s a fascinating look at one of the world’s most beautiful and intricate buildings – and even after 130 years, it’s still not finished construction.

  • My only regret about such great design work is that it had such a historically loathsome client.

    I hope they paid Gaudi on time, at least.

    An old adage is that men think in years, but the Church thinks in centuries. Fascinating building! The 60 minute piece reminded me of the cathedral book by Ken Follett.
