When you enter the majestic space of the La Sagrada Familia interior,  the soft cylindrical columns draw your views and attention immediately up to the ceiling and focusing on the golden lit opening above the main altar. This opening seems to magically draw a spiritual light and presence that just envelops the entire cathedral, the golden details sparkle with the presence of the holy spirit.
