It's taken almost 140 years of building and two recent years of talks, but it looks like Barcelona's most-visited tourist attraction, the unfinished Sagrada Familia, may finally see its finishing touches put on.

The basilica was designed by architect Antoni Gaudi, and has been under construction since 1882.

Until now, the building has only been marked on property registries as an empty plot belonging to the Archdiocese of Barcelona. The church's trustees conceded to paying $41 million in fees over a 10-year period, so that the city can fund public transportation, increase accessibility, and make other improvements to the surrounding area.

According to the BBC, the mayor of Barcelona promises to legalize the Church in the next year, and the Council, which oversees the most famous protracted in the world, will pay the money within ten years.

El Pais report that the lack of oversight has seen some building anomalies, including where eight columns were found to have been built up to 50cm across the pavement in 2007.

A completion date of 2026 has been targeted: 100 years after the death of Gaudi, who was killed after being hit by a tram, and 150 years after the site was first opened.

It attracts 4.5 million annual visitors - an average of 12,000 people a day.
