Barcelona's Sagrada Familia church, one of the city’s main tourist attractions has decided to close temporarily due to a protest that was organised in front of the doors of the basilica, on Friday morning, as reported on its official Twitter account.

“Due to a group of protesters currently stationed in front of the Basilica, blocking the entrance, we can’t ensure visitors will have access to the grounds. We hope the situation will return to normal as quickly as possible,” says the statement.

Hundreds of people gathered in front of the church on the occasion of the general strike called throughout Catalonia after the Supreme Court ruling, which sentenced nine Catalan independence leaders to prison sentences of between 9 and 13 years for their involvement in the 'procés.'

The images show the demonstrators blocking the entrances, carrying 'Estelada' flags, shouting "Freedom for political prisoners" and holding banners with slogans such as “#SpainisAFascistState”
