Illumination of the facade of the Nativity

The facade of the Nativity is the only one that began to be built when Antoni Gaudí still alive. This facade symbolizes the joy for the birth of Jesus but also the illusion and the joy of living. During the action the different sculptural groups of the facade are illuminated, and with a background music, the different scenes of the arrival of the son of God are narrated, explaining the symbology of each of them. The facade is illuminated four times a day. The act is free, but there is limited capacity. At the end of the event, there will be hot chocolate for the attendees.
