Sagrada Família Nativity façade illuminated for World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day - Sagrada Família Nativity façade illuminated for World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day
On 8 May, from 9 pm to 12 midnight, the Nativity façade of the Sagrada Família was lit up in red, joining World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day. Each year, on the anniversary of the birth of founder Henry Dunant, this day is celebrated around the world to raise awareness and recognise all the people who work with this organisation.
Sagrada Família is lit up three times a year to support various charity initiatives. This year, the façade will also be illuminated on 2 June for World Day to Fight Myasthenia Gravis.
In addition to these illuminations, like every year, the Sagrada Família also took part in Earth Hour in March by switching off the Nativity façade completely.
