ILLUMINATION OF THE PASSION FAÇADE 2019, AVAILABLE ONLINE
The Basilica of the Sagrada Família is an expression in stone of the Christian faith, and for Easter, the Passion façade is the star. On this façade, Gaudí symbolised the period in Jesus Christ’s life between the Last Supper, his Death and his Resurrection.
We will be offering the recording of the 2019 illumination of the façade online.

The Via Crucis shows us the path of the Passion of Christ. Visiting the stations evokes a reflection on the universal values that persist over time.
