Would you visit an attraction that’s still under construction? Tripadvisor recently released its “Best of the Best Things to Do” list of the best attractions in the world. The top attraction in the world is a European cathedral that has been under construction since 1882.

Located in Barcelona, Basilica de la Sagrada Familia was the vision of Antoni Gaudí, a trailblazer in modern architecture. The cathedral was vandalized in the 1930s during the Spanish Civil War. In 2005, Basilica de la Sagrada Familia became a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The travel platform releases Travelers’ Choice Awards each year. The “Best of the Best Things to Do” list features 11 categories, including the best amusement parks and experiences in the US and in the world.
