They say the work is taking a long time due to the complexity of creating Gaudí, who died in 1926 and many did not know how to do what was planned, and another problem that say, but we think it's a bit of history, It is that the Holy Family should be built only with the money from the entry tickets and donations, would not have public money, we believe that not lack money, because the ticket to enter is a little expensive and has many visits.
