Today in Latin American history, Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí was born in 1852.

Between 1984 and 2005, seven of his works were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Gaudí‘s works reflect his highly individual and distinctive style and are largely concentrated in the Catalan capital of Barcelona, notably his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família.

Construction on the church Sagrada Família began in 1882 and has an estimated completion of 2026.
