The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia will be filled with music and Christmas spirit with its traditional Christmas Concert. This year the concert will be performed by the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès, with the collaboration of the Cor Bruckner Barcelona. Under the direction of Xavier Puig they will offer a repertoire of Christmas carols from all over the world.

As usual every year, the Sagrada Familia offers citizens 500 free double tickets. To get one of them you have to register in the draw between December 2 at 10:00 am and December 12 at 10:00 am. On Monday, December 12 at 10:00 a.m. the drawing for the tickets will be held, and the winners will receive their tickets by e-mail in a few days.

At the end of the Christmas Concert, the Holy Family will illuminate for the first time the terminals of the towers of the Evangelists Luke and Mark, thus commemorating the completion of its construction. The towers are topped by the winged tetramorph figure with the Gospel book corresponding to Luke and Mark, which are represented by an ox and a lion, respectively, in accordance with Christian iconography. Both towers will be illuminated every day from Saturday, December 17 until January 8, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Please note that the raffle is aimed at people of legal age, residents in Spain, nationals with ID card, as well as foreigners with residence card.
