ACI Prensa Staff, Mar 28, 2021 / 04:54 am (CNA).- Plans by the astonishing architect Antonio Gaudi are the basis for a new chapel in Chile dedicated to Our Lady of the Angels. The project could resume this year, some 95 years after his death.
If built, the chapel would be the only architectural work of the great Spanish master outside of his native country. The chapel was originally intended to be part of Gaudi’s famous unfinished masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia Basilica of Barcelona. However, it was never added.
The architect instead sent the designs to the New World upon a request from the city of Rancagua, a city 50 miles south of Santiago with over 230,000 residents today.
