The construction of the temple was legalized after 134 years.
Last October, the basilica experienced an important moment in its history. The construction of the tower of Jesucristo began. 8 stone panels were added onto the first level. It didn’t take long until the works reached the second level and high of 95, 68 meters. The highest spire of Sagrada Familia will be 172,5 meters high. However, at the moment, it is still shadowed by other towers that are currently in construction. The towers already standing reached a bit above 100 meters.
As a religious building, La Sagrada Familia is excluded from some taxes and additional charges that private owners have to pay. By legalization of the construction, La Sagrada Familia agreed on economical co-responsibility for its visitors with the city and Eixample district.
The final land usage of the temple is previewed to be 53 495 square meters, from which only 15 000 square meters will be stairs. The final price of the basilica should be calculated based on these figures. It should be finished by 2026.
