Barcelona – Sagrada Familia – Part 3

In my final post of photos from the basilica I have chosen some images from the facade which represents the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ.

The style of the architecture is very different to the Nativity Facade. On this side the supports are shaped to look like muscles or sinews. The sculptures are angular and more modern.

The grey structures above represent bones.

The basilica is, as can be seen in several of these photos, still under construction. The goal is to complete it by 2026, which will be the hundredth anniversary of Gaudi’s death.
