Of the three facades that architect Antoni Gaudi had planned for Sagrada Familia Cathedral, two – the Passion facade and the Nativity facade – are complete.
The Glory facade, which represents Christ’s eternal glory, is yet to be completed.
The Passion facade faces the west and represents the suffering of Christ during his crucifixion.
While the Nativity facade is highly decorated, the Passion facade is austere, plain, and straightforward.
The Passion facade is the only part of Sagrada Familia where you will find straight lines.
Going up the Sagrada Familia towers is one of the best ways to view Gaudi’s Basilica.
You can enjoy two views from the towers in the Passion facade of Sagrada Familia, Barcelona.
First, of course, is the view of the intricate skeletal sculptures on the various towers of Passion facade. The second is a fantastic ocean view.
When you climb up the Passion facade tower for the stunning views, you look down from 65 meters (214 feet).
You need to have Towers Access tickets (also known as the Top View tickets) to go up the Passion Towers.
Important: Fast Track Sagrada Familia entry ticket is the cheapest way to get into the Basilica. 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 a Tower access ticket.
