When will the Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona be finished?

Answer. When will it be finished? The amazing interior was completed and opened to the public in 2012. In 2023 the church was 80% completed. A former goal was to complete the project by 2026 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death but in 2024 it was announced that construction is expected to continue until 2034. Gaudi was tragically hit by a tram in 1926 and succumbed to his injuries a few days later. 2026 marks the 100 year centenary of the architect Antoni Gaudi's death in 1926. If the Sagrada Familia church is finished in 2034, it will be 152 years after the foundation stone was laid. The foundation stone for the Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona was laid on March 19, 1882. The current chief architecht is Jordi Fauli.
