GUIDED TOUR OF THE SAGRADA FAMÍLIA ON SANT JORDI EVE
For Sant Jordi, the Sagrada Família is offering a special after-hours visit to the Basilica on 22 April, with various time slots between 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm.
To enter the draw to win tickets, fill in the registration form between 11 April at 10:00 am and 19 April at 10:00 am.
The winners will be drawn on 19 April after the entry window closes. The Sagrada Família will contact the winners by email to explain how to take part in the tour.
The lucky ones who come to the tour will also be able to see an art installation next to the sculpture of Saint George on the Jube balcony created by the participants in the Sant Jordi activity at the Sagrada Família: “Roses to remember”.
TOUR-WORKSHOP FOR THE ELDERLY IN THE SAGRADA FAMÍLIA NEIGHBOURHOOD
This year, for Sant Jordi, highlighting light as hope, the colour of the stained-glass windows and roses, elderly residents in the Sagrada Família neighbourhood and Amics de la Gent Gran will create an art installation with plexiglass roses as part of the holiday celebrations at the Sagrada Família. The piece is titled “Roses to remember”.
This action is part of the goal to make the Sagrada Família more welcoming to all, as Pope Francis said: “Don’t forget our elders. A tree without roots cannot grow, cannot flower. We cannot turn our backs on the elderly. They aren’t disposable; they’re living memory. From them comes the sap that makes everything grow.” At the Basilica, we strive to continue working to care for the elderly and, through art and culture, make them feel special.
The tour-workshop will be held on 19, 20 and 21 April with members of the Associació Amics de la Gent Gran and residents at several care homes in the Sagrada Família neighbourhood.
