The Nativity Facade

The intricate detail of the sculptures and artwork on this facade can only be appreciated in person as this image neither portrays the workmanship nor the grandeur of this structure. This facade was what Gaudi personally supervised and most of the work was complete before his untimely death in 1926. The 4 columns are bell towers, the inner 2 reaching 107m and the outer 2 are 98m, with the particular shape and the gaps between the stones designed to enhance the sounds of the bells.
