With only a few weeks left until new models in the 3D Warehouse are no longer loaded into Google Earth, we thought it’d be nice to check out a beautiful one that was just accepted. Pedro Domecq, who we often know as simply “PeterG” and who was the winner of the 2012 Model Your Town Competition, recently added the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya to the 3D Warehouse (and subsequently to Google Earth) and it is stunning.

While I can appreciate that Google is pushing more toward 3D Imagery instead of hand-built models, it will be a long time before the automatically-generated imagery can approach this level of detail.  We’ll certainly miss seeing the amazing work of people like Pedro being added to Google Earth.

To see this model for yourself in Google Earth, you can visit it in the 3D Warehouse here or use this KML file to fly there directly in Google Earth.

“Sagrada Família, is a massive, privately-funded Roman Catholic church that has been under construction in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain since 1882 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026.” (wikipedia)

When completed it will become the tallest church in the world at 170 m (558 ft) tall.
