Introduction:

The high priest of modernist architecture, Antoni Gaudi, belongs to a distinguished line of creators who over the generations have endowed Barcelona with the world´s most curious mixture of styles.

He took charge of work on the Sagrada Familia in 1883, when work had already commenced on the crypt, and gradually he worked on the project more and more until he devoted himself entirely to the work in his last years. The church, which relates architecture to liturgy, was the result of constant meditation, calculation and trials which not only sought to produce innovation in building but also some form of far-reaching wisdom.

Despite being named after its elegant Gothic buildings from the 13-15C this area is actually much older, since Roman relics have been found here. From this period some parts of the Barcelona wall have survived (4C.), and can be see in main places. During the 19C., les monuments the most seriously damaged monuments were the focus of an extremely careful restoration programme, which gave the quarter its elegant appearance.
