The works began in 1882 under the reign of Alfonso XII of Spain. The building was begun in the Gothic style, but when Gaudí took over as designer of the work in 1883, at age 31, was completely redesigned. For the rest of his life in the church Gaudí worked completely devoting the last 15 years. According to the desire of the promotion committee, the work could be completed, in 2026, almost 150 years after the laying of the foundation stone. The progress of the work is not constant and depends on the influx of donations. As happened in other projects, built on one or more centuries (eg, the Basilica of St. Peter or the Duomo di Milano), the church was consecrated on November 7, 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI, many years before end of construction.
