What is Nativity Facade?
A facade is a view created by two or more towers of a building.
Sagrada Familia’s architect Antoni Gaudi had planned three facades for the Cathedral.
The Nativity facade and Passion facade are complete, while the Glory facade, which is dedicated to the glory of Jesus, is yet to be completed.
The four eastern towers on the ‘front’ of the Sagrada Família together form the Nativity facade view, which is best seen from the Nativity facade tower.
The vantage point on the Nativity facade tower is around 65 meters (214 feet) high, and the views are a treat for every tourist.
You need to have Towers Access tickets (also known as the Top View tickets) to go up the Nativity Towers.
