Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família is lighting up for Christmas

The Nativity façade of Gaudí’s church will be putting on a light display to celebrate the holidays, with a sweet ending.

As is the case year in year out, one of the buildings that really takes Christmas to heart is the Sagrada Família. The distinctive church designed by Antoni Gaudí will be celebrating the holidays with a wide range of activities, but the one that most people will get the chance to see and enjoy is the light show. For four days in December, there will be an amazing light display on the Nativity façade, along with a reading set to music that will narrate the scenes depicting how Jesus came into our world, underscoring the symbolism behind each of the Biblical scenes that we can see on the huge building. What’s more, each display, lasting fifteen minutes, will wind up with hot chocolate for everyone who comes to watch the show.

The light displays will be on 19, 20, 21 and 22 December on the Nativity façade of the Sagrada Família. On 19, 20 and 22 December there will be three sessions: at 7 pm, 7:30 pm and 8 pm. On 21 December there will only be one at 7 pm. The show can be seen from inside the premises, which has limited spaces. However, it’s been designed in such a way that anyone can enjoy it from the street in front of the building. What’s more, as we mentioned above, they are organising activities for all audiences. One of the most interesting ones is a family workshop where children can learn all about the church and take part in truly festive handicrafts You can sign up for the workshop by sending an email to taller@ext.sagradafamilia.org.

The light display is free, and you don't need to book in advance. You can find more information on the Sagrada Família website.
