View from Nativity facade tower at Sagrada Familia

There are two kinds of views you can enjoy from the Nativity facade tower of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Both the views are equally stunning and are reason enough for you to go up the tower.

First is the stunning view of the sculptures on Nativity facade towers (photos given below).

Gaudi took a special interest in these sculptures and it shows.

Once you are done viewing Gaudi’s work on all sides, from the same tower you can also enjoy the amazing view of the Eastern side of Barcelona, the mountains and a little bit of the ocean. Jump to Nativity facade photos

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.

Two of these facades – Nativity facade and Passion facade – are complete while the Glory facade is expected to be complete by 2022.

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 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.

Important: 90% of the visitors to Sagrada Familia buy the Fast Track entry ticket. If money isn’t an issue and you prefer an immersive experience, opt for the guided tour of Sagrada Familia. To go up the Tower, buy Tower access ticket.
