Barcelona, Spain – Sagrada Familia Basilica – Nativity Facade

Wow….what a church!!!  We recommend buying your tickets in advance as this is a popular tourist attraction!!  We bought top view tour tickets on the Nativity Facade side. You can only enter the grounds of the basilica when your tour time starts.  Once inside – you can take your time and see everything.

The eastern Nativity Facade was our entry point because our top view tour tickets were on the Nativity Facade side. This facade explains the birth of Jesus Christ.  There are three entrances into the church via this facade – each entrance is dedicated to a Christian virtue: Hope, Charity and Faith.

Looking at the entire Nativity Facade:

    Faith Hope and Charity are the Christian virtues you both received at your Baptism 👶. Antoni Gaudi had a reason for every thing he created, that is for sure. I will be visiting this blog often as it is far interesting to see the first time one looks at it. What history you both walked on!!!
    Thank you Stephanie…love ya 😍

    1. It was overwhelming actually! With all the people and so much to see while trying to follow the guided audio tour, we almost forgot we had tickets to go up the elevator for a Top View!!! It was only seeing a line up inside the cathedral, wondering what it was for then find out, connect and remember that we had tickets for a Top View!!! 🙂
