If you build it: Kanye West is apparently planning to construct a cathedral for Kim Kardashian

Extravagant: Kanye is a big fan of the grand gesture, having married Kim in front of a giant wall of flowers in Florence, Italy

.According to The National Enquirer, the rapper wants to build Kim a cathedral as dramatic as Barcelona’s famed La Sagrada Familia.

They want somewhere that weddings, baptisms and family funerals can take place for years to come,' a source told the U.S. publication. 'But Kanye being Kanye, it’s going to be ludicrously over the top!'
Barcelona's still unfinished Roman Catholic church was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and began construction in 1882. 
'Kanye has visited the church several times, and it takes his breath away every time,' the insider revealed. 'He’s always wanted something similar for his own family.'
The rapper, who called his last album Yeezus, is now said to be on the look out for the perfect spot to build his over-the-top place of worship. 
And naturally, it will be an homage to himself and Kim, with even a fancy stained glass window featuring himself, his wife and their one-year-old daughter North. 
'Kanye sees it as a monument to him and Kim that will become a major landmark,' the source declared. 'He says everyone will want to see it, like the Hollywood sign or the Empire State Building.'
The 37-year-old star has apparently set aside a cool $5 million for the project with plans afoot to 'start an online appeal so fans can donate to the fund.'
The planned church will also see a tribute to Kanye's late mother Donda who the Enquirer say was 'deeply religious.'
Kanye has previously compared himself to a deity, having released a track entitled I Am God.
