Clonmacnoise (Cluain Mhic Nos) is an ancient monastic site on the banks of the Shannon near the centre of Ireland. It was founded in 545 AD by St. Ciaran, and became a major centre of religion, learning and trade. For seven centuries the monestry thrived and among the extensive ruins that have survived to this day are a cathedral, eight churches, two round towers, three high crosses and hundreds of Early Christian cross slabs.

La Sagrada Familia

La Sagrada Familia, a large Roman Catholic basilica is the final, and most ambitious, of the buildings designed by Antoni GaudÝ. Construction began in the 1880s and GaudÝ worked on the project for over 40 years, devoting the last 15 years of his life entirely to it.Since 1940 other architects have carried on the work and sculptures by J. Busquets and Josep Subirachs are now part of the basilica. When completed the structure will have 18 towers representing in ascending order of height the 12 Apostles, the four Evangelists, the Virgin Mary and, tallest of all, Jesus Christ. The church will have three fašades - the Nativity (eastern) fašade, the Glory fašade (yet to be completed), and the Passion (western) fašade. I hope to return to see it completed but Ill have to wait a while as its expected to be 2026 at the earliest.
