Save the Sagrada Familia

While I'm not a great fan of the Church, I do rather like churches, and in particular Gaudi's incomplete art nouveau behemoth, the Sagrada Familia. Hence, my slight worry that it might be torn down for a train tunnel.

A bethemoth indeed, and on a scale that cannot be ever achieved as it was imagined! I love it exactly for these reasons... and I love the fact that dogged workers still continue to work on it.

I don't think it will be torn down - it HAS to be the biggest symbol of Spain - the madness that typifies the likes of Gaudi and Dali, and the absolute epic proportions of the religiosity that compels so many people to continue building to this day!
