The architect Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) is best known for his, as yet unfinished, church of the Holy Family (La Sagrada Familia) in Barcelona, Spain. From 1915 he devoted his life to the building of this masterpiece, and following his death he was buried in the chapel of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in the its crypt. He is said to have led an exemplary life as a devout member of the Roman Catholic Church
On the 66th anniversary of his death ‘a small group of Christians fond of the personality and work of Gaudi’ started the process which they hoped would lead to the canonization of ‘God’s architect’.
His tomb is decorated with fresh flowers and lit candles.
