More somber than the Passion Façade, the Nativity Façade is dedicated to Faith, Hope and Charity. It was completed during the life of Antoni Gaudí, who intended for the façade to be coloured. It is uncertain whether the finished church will actually be coloured per his wishes. This side faces north and thus gets less direct sunlight, amplifying its darker look.
