Antoni Plàcid Guillem Gaudí Cornet was born on June 25th, 1852. He studied architecture at the University of Barcelona. He died in 1926 after having been run over by a tram.

Here are pictures of the most famous work, the one everyone goes to see in Barcelona, the "Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia" otherwise known as just the Sagrada Familia, the Sacred Family.

Notes:
For more on Gaudi's life and works, see the amazing Gaudi and Barcelona Club. You can read about Gaudi's life, His works, see historic photos, and get info on some amazing Barcelona tours.

I visited Barcelona for the first time in the 70's, and I ate at Los Caracoles restaurant on Escudellers Street in the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) near Placa Reial. Great food and still recommended today.
