"You must see all sides of La Sagrada Familia" Sagrada Familia Tip by littlesam1

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona: 476 reviews and 1,080 photos

The carvings on the front of the Sagrada Familia are not as familiar as the artwork on the back of the Basilica. The facade of the Basilica was finished by Subirachs after the death of Gaudi. There has been much controversary about the carving. Some say the faces are cold and at times gloomy. Others say its not in keeping with Gaudi's designs. Still others say Gaudi would have approved as they are modern and innovative. Personally I think they bring a wonderful contrast to the Gaudi work on the back of the Basilica and the works are equally as fascinating.
