THE PATH OF THE CROSS

The Passion has its own path: from the Arrest of Jesus to his Crucifixion. It is the Via Crucis, which takes us towards the cross and includes most Christian values. The sculpture groups on the Passion façade remind us of this path, which is why the Via Crucis will be part of the Easter celebrations this year at the Sagrada Família.
