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.

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