View from Nativity facade tower at Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia’s architect Antoni Gaudi had planned three facades for Sagrada Familia Cathedral.

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

Going up the Sagrada Familia towers is one of the best ways to view Sagrada Familia’s facades from close quarters.

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.

After you are done checking out the inside of Sagrada Familia, we suggest you go up 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.

That’s why we recommend while buying tickets for Sagrada Familia, you must opt for the ‘Towers Access’ tickets which provide the ticket holder access to one of the towers.

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 (pics 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.

Note: Once you have the tower access tickets, you can choose to go up the Nativity facade tower or the Passion facade tower – the choice is yours. Check out the views from Passion facade tower
