What took so long? Do you think it's worth the wait? Have you seen it?

It has taken so long to complete due to challenges over the intense complexity of the design, the money needed to fund it and a building interruption from the Spanish Civil War. Is it worth to continue the construction? What do you think?

It would be great to finally have it finished. Pretty sure people would flock there to see why it took so long to build. I'd be curious about it too.

I think it's part of the church's history and charm so I think they should continue building it. I heard it will be another 10 years to finish. I am curious to see this in person and find out why it took so long.

That would be another feather on the Catholic Church's cap. They've built amazing structures and this has become a recognized landmark in Spain and it's not even finished yet.

I think it would be worth the wait. The architectural design is wonderful. Can't wait to see this in person.

This is actually the first time that I learned about it. It's amazing to know that a construction can really take that long. I bet that Sagrada Familia is something worth waiting for.

The complexity of its structural and architectural design must be the very reason for the long construction of the building. I hope I can see it once done.

I get why it was delayed for so long but with today's technology, why would it take another 8 years to finish?

I've seen the pictures and there's so much detail! It looked so complicated.

100 years is too much! I don't see why they have to spend all that time and money on just a structure.
