Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Local nameTemple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor
LocationBarcelona, Spain

This Roman Catholic church is dedicated to the heart of Jesus Christ. It's built of stone and resembles old fortresses, but also the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris. The bronze statue of Jesus Christ reminds its visitors of Rio de Janeiro's Christ statue of Corcovado.

Designed in 1902 by architect Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia, the construction of the church took 59 years. The building is a mixture of Romanesque and Neo-Gothic styles, but you can also spot some decorations influenced by Modernism in the crypt. Note the stained glasses and four rose windows in the aisles.

As the church is located at the highest peak of the mountain of Tibidabo, it offers its visitors marvellous views of Barcelona as well.
