Spanish Landmark FINALLY Receives Permission for Construction…Over 100 Years After It Began

Spanish Landmark FINALLY Receives Permission for Construction…Over 100 Years After It Began

And we thought the Big Dig was badly delayed. Travelwire recently reported that after 130 years of construction, Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Familia has FINALLY received the city permit needed to legally continue construction. However, the permit comes at a hefty price. The Construction Board of La Sagrada Familia Foundation now owes $5.2 million for the permit itself and an additional $40 million to cover the 134 years of infrastructure works. While the estimated total cost of construction is well over $400 million, the church is one of the city’s main attractions so construction will probably continue – with or without a permit.
