  1. this is Sagrada Família in Barcelona Espania, officially known as Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família.

    This one was easy to recognize with all the cranes,etc. Also, I recognized one spanish feature, all the city blocks have a 45 degree angle on the corners.

  2. This is the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. It was designed by Antoni Gaudi.

    I found it by remembering the time I place my company’s office in Barcelona… the rooftops looked familiar.

    Did you also know that the Alan Parsons project has an entire album dedicated to the architect? 🙂

  3. Sagrada Familia, Barcelona.

    My girlfriend took one look at it and said “I’m like 99% sure what that is” and then walked away leaving me to figure it out on my own (she’s cruel like that).

    Red tiles, figured it was either spain or italy. Barcelona was my first guess.

  4. This is the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain.

  5. “la sagrada familia” in Barcelona, under rehabilitation for decades.

    The blocks’ shape is also typically barcelona.

    Thank you for your site. ‘Been lurking for a while, and find it pretty interesting and fascinating.

  6. Sagrada Familia Barcelona

  7. Sagrada familia Barcelona Spain

    Very easy for me because I have been there.
    I recognised the typcal bloks of houses. Just finding the right spot.

  8. Urban building site with a funny-looking outline… it’s got to be La Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona, Antoni Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. Started in 1882, its currently estimated completion date is sometime in 2026.

  9. Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain – church that is still under construction, despite being started in 1882.

    The key for me in this contest was finding countries with red roofs (Spain/Italy), then finding a large city with the octagonal shaped city blocks (Barcelona). Then one could zoom in to find the exact location of the picture.

  10. Budapest

  11. La Sagrada Familia en BARCELONA
    I lived in BARCLEONA 6 years…

  13. It’s the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona–the cranes are the giveaway

  14. Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain

  15. Hi Gary – my first time here, thanks for hosting the game (and for everything-everywhere!)…

    Barcelona was about my fourth city guess – but the red roofs and geometric blocks were a hint at a developed Mediterranean area. This is the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia.

  16. Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s massive Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Spain.

  17. The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família in Barcalona, Spain. Surrounding architecture style and the spire shadows gave it away.

  18. This is the famed church La Sagrada Família in Barcelona, Spain. Clues are that the picture shows the shadow of a massive church, and the surrounding architecture appears to be Spanish style.

  19. Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

  20. It’s the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona!!

  21. This is the Sagrada Familia church (being built yet after decades).
    The towers’ shadows gave me the clue.

  22. The Sagrada Familia – a truly massive cathedral in Barcelona, Spain. Amazing that anyone would still be working on … well, anything 125 years later in this day and age.
