View from Nativity facade tower at Sagrada Familia

You can enjoy two views from the Nativity facade tower of Sagrada Familia, and both are equally stunning.

First, you will see Gaudi’s intricate sculptures on the Nativity facade. Gaudi took a particular interest in these sculptures, and it shows.

The second reason to go up is the fantastic view of Barcelona’s Eastern side, the mountains, and a little bit of the ocean that you can see from the same tower.

If you are still not convinced, check out why we think Sagrada Familia’s tower visit is worth it.

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.
