La Sagrada Familia became Gaudi’s life work. He poured into it all his ideas of nature-inspired modernist design and combined them with religious symbolism. He worked on it tirelessly until his untimely death on June 10, 1926. Given Sagrada’s extravagant design and size, the public started to refer to the church as the Cathedral. However, it was only an expiatory church. That is until 2010 when Pope Benedict XVI promoted the status of the church to a basilica.
