Not much people know how Gaudí died. From what it known he was hit by a tram in front of Sagrada Familia when he crossed the street aiming to go to the construction side of his masterpiece.
He lay in the hospital "Hospital de la Santa Creu", but people didn't recognise the famous artist because of his neglected appereance.
Only three days later, a friend of him found him in this hospital and asked for a private room for him. The same day, 10 July 1926 he died.
He was buried in the midst of La Sagrada Família.
