Barcelona City Council treated the participants in the Indian Leaders Programme to lunch and a visit to the cathedral, one of the city's most representative symbols
The group visited the Sagrada Familia with a guide, who told them all about its peculiarities and history. The Leaders highlighted the building's brilliance and the originality of its art, and were especially surprised at the fact that a biblical passage carved into the Puerta de la Eucaristía should be carved in 50 languages, Sanskrit being one of them. During the visit, the Indian Leaders had the chance to contextualise the work of Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí in Barcelona, whose architectural legacy has left an imprint on the city, home to most of his work.
