The Temple of the Sagrada Familia is Gaudì's great unfinished masterpiece. He worked on the project from as early as 1882, and in his final years he worked on little else. The revolutionary architecture is the main feature, but there are some mosaic elements too. The crosses at the top of each of the eight spires are covered in mosaic, for example.
