Earlier in the day, the Huskers spent the morning touring La Sagrata Familia, a church that's been under construction since 1882 and won't be finished until 2026.  The church features three facades that depict the life of Jesus from birth to death and resurrection.  The remaining work is on the Glory Facade, which depicts the teachings of Jesus.  The church can hold approximately 8,000 people.

Tomorrow morning, the Huskers will head home from Barcelona, and should arrive back in Lincoln in the late evening.
