Gaudi's Sagrada Familia

Arches Spires

The walking tour of Sagrada Familia is divided into three parts. You enter the church through the side of the church called the Passion Facade, which depicts the passion and crucifixion. Then you walk through the interior of the church, which is under construction. The entrance on the other side, called the Nativity Facade, depicts the nativity. Above, arches in front of the Passion Facade.

Exterior Wall Construction Spires

You can also see construction going on on the exterior walls.

At the very end of our walk through, we took a construction elevator halfway up the church. From our perch, we got a good view of the spires on the Nativity Facade.
