    Description :

    The architect Francisco de Paula del Vilar first designed a neo-Gothic church 1877, but abandoned the project. Then Antonio Gaudi took on responsibility for the work.

    Gaudi imagined a church with numerous technical innovations on a plan in the form of a Latin cross superimposed on the initial crypt. The main altar was surrounded by seven chapels dedicated to the seven sins and seven sorrows of Saint Joseph.

    On each facade four towers were planned, a total of twelve, to represent the apostles. The representation of Christ would be another tower, and around this four others dedicated to the four Evangelists and one to the Virgin Mary.
