The Basilica of the Sagrada Família was the inspiration of a Catalan bookseller, Josep Maria Bocabella, founder of Asociación Espiritual de Devotos de San José.After a visit to the Vatican in 1872, Bocabella returned from Italy with the intention of building a church inspired by that at Loreto.The crypt of the church, funded money by donations, was begun 19\3\1882, on the festival of St. Joseph, to the design of the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, whose plan was for a Gothic revival church of a standard form.Antoni Gaudí began work on the project in 1883. On 18\3\1883 Villar retired from the project, and Gaudí assumed responsibility for its design, which he changed radically.
