This is the only façade Gaudí saw completly finished. It has a lot of decoration between the groups of scultures. There are three gates and above the main one there is the Holy Family in the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Other gropus are the Annunciation and the Massacre of the Innocents. It seemed like the whole façade rest over two columns which a tortoise in its bases.

Esta es la única fachada que Gaudí vio completamente finalizada. Tiene mucha decoración entre los grupos escultóricos. Hay tres puertas y sobre la principal está la Sagrada Familia en el nacimiento de Jesus en Belén. Otros grupos son la Anunciación y la matanza de los Santos Inocentes. Parece como si toda la fachada descansara sobre dos columnas con una tortuga en su base.
