聖家堂

Sagrada Familia

聖家堂是高第獻給神的教堂,「聖家」就是耶穌、瑪利亞與約瑟三人,耶穌的降世故事也刻了在教堂大門。

 

聖家堂是高第的畢生心血,他花了幾十年建造聖家堂,直至高第去世,聖家堂尚未峻工,但高第堅持慢工出細貨,他說:「我個客唔趕。」

而高第口中的「客」,就是「上帝」了,可以不惜工本、不計時間地打造自己的完美作品,高第真是個幸福的建築師啊……

 

俄羅斯聖彼得堡的華麗宮殿群已令我目定口呆,西班牙神雕鬼斧的阿蘭布拉宮也令我讚嘆不絕,但這些宏偉名勝早已峻工,見過一次的漂亮,再看第二次都無新鮮感;但聖家堂不同,聖家堂今日還在努力興建,每次來看都不同,新鮮感100分,下次再來巴塞隆拿時,我一定會再來聖家堂!

聖家堂的教堂內部好靚,它的彩繪玻璃旋渦樓梯細部裝飾都是一等一。

 

聖家堂絕對是我整個歐洲之行中,最令我印象深刻的建築!

 

 

 

Gaudi built Sagrada Familia for God. ‘Sagrada Familia’ was the Holy Family of Jesus, Maria and Joseph. The story of the Birth of Jesus was craved on stone in the front door of the church.

 

Gaudi spent decades to build Sagrada Familia. It had not finished until Gaudi’s death. But Gaudi insisted to build the best church.

He said, ‘My client is in no hurry.’

The ‘client’ is the ‘God’ for Gaudi. Gaudi was the luckiest architect who could build his prefect church and didn’t have to worry about time and money…

 

I was stunned by the beautiful palaces in St. Petersburg, Russia and the detail craved Alhambra in Spain. All these wonders were completed already. I wouldn’t be amazed again for the seen beauty. But Sagrada Familia is different. It is STILL BUILDING today. It would be a different building every time I visited it. I will definitely re-visit Sagrada Familia again when I came to Barcelona again!

 

The interior of the church is beautiful. The stained glasses, the swirl stair and the detail decoration were certainly first class.
