Construction of the Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona, began in 1882. It's still not done.

Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain, and smack in the middle of the country’s Catalonia region. This week on Going Places, we hear from Cesar Escuin, a tour guide who lives there. He spoke with KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley about the region: from its famous artists to the soaring Sagrada Familia, or Holy Family church.
