The Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona has been a work in progress since the year 1882. Famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí himself was involved during the first phase of construction.
Catalan police said a bomb scare near Barcelona's landmark Sagrada Familia church was a false alarm. They had earlier cordoned off the cathedral and nearby businesses.
The Sagrada Família church in Barcelona is a work in progress - and also one of the city's most popular tourist attractions. Construction began in 1882. The church was designed by renowned architect Antoni Gaudí.
His most famous work is the Sagrada Familia. Architect Antoni Gaudí built for eternity. Now the first home he designed is being opened to visitors. It's one of eight UNESCO World Heritage sites by Gaudí in Barcelona.
Police have placed barriers in front the Cologne Cathedral. The measure follows reports that militants sought to target Barcelona's Sagrada Familia - another, albeit more modern, icon of ecclesiastical architecture.
