After 137 years , 10 architects, and millions of euros of administrative costs, Barcelona’s modernist masterpiece the Sagrada Família has finally been granted a building permit . In what has been satirised as the ultimate tale of sluggish bureaucracy

More than 130 years after it was begun, Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Familia has finally obtained permission from the city to legally continue construction in a bizarre example of After three years of negotiations, the mayor's office finally recognised the works, which began in 1885, as legitimate.

That all changed on Friday when the Roman Catholic church finally received its building permit, according to a Twitter post by Janet Sanz, in charge of urban planning.

Barcelona's city council awarded the license to the committee in charge of completing the construction of the church for 4.6 million euros ($5.2 million), Sanz wrote.

The money will be used to fund projects designed to mitigate the impact of approximately 4.5 million people who visit the unfinished basilica every year.

She told reporters that the council had finally managed to "resolve a historical anomaly in the city -- that an emblematic monument like the Sagrada Familia... didn't have a building permit, that it was being constructed illegally," Agence France-Presse reported.

Barcelona's Sagrada Familia has finally received a building permit 137 years after construction began. In 1885, two years after he took over the building that would become the Sagrada Familia , Antoni Gaudi applied for a construction permit with the local council in Barcelona.

Gaudí's legacy

The Catholic temple's designer, Catalan modernist Antoni Gaudí, had asked for a permit in 1885 from the city council of Sant Martí de Provençals, which is currently one of Barcelona's neighborhoods, but never received an answer, according to a Friday blog post from the church.

And even though construction of the neo-Gothic church began in 1882, authorities only discovered in 2016 that it never had planning permission, AFP reported.

Work on the Sagrada Familia, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, may have dragged on for an unusually long time, but incredibly the edifice remains unfinished.

The basilica will have a maximum height of 172 meters (564 feet) and will be completed with a budget of 374 million euros, according to the new building permit seen by AFP.

Gaudí, whose idiosyncratic works are found across the Spanish coastal city, dedicated his life to building the Sagrada Familia until he was killed by a tram in 1926.

Since then a string of architects have worked to finish the church according to Gaudí's original design and work is scheduled to end in 2026, marking 100 years since his death.
