Barcelona has a strong economic mercantile tradition. The region was one of the earliest to begin industrialization in continental Europe. Related to art and architecture is remarkable the work of architect Antoni Gaudí, which can be seen throughout the city. His best known work is the immense but still unfinished church of the Sagrada Família, which has been under construction since 1882, and it's still financed by private donations.
