The campaign to canonise Antoni Gaudí continues.

Catholic campaigners have delivered a petition to the Vatican calling for 'God's architect' to become a saint, not just because of his work at the Sagrada Família, but also because of his extreme piety.

Gaudí supporters are seeking out miracles involving the architect, which are a prerequisite for canonisation.

And Stephanie Pfeil, a German artist living in Barcelona, claims she was woken one morning by a vision of Gaudí. 'He wanted to tell me something very important, ' Pfeil relates, 'but I could not hear him as I had my earplugs in.'
