The Passion Façade, on the exterior of the Basílica de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain, is a unique portrayal of Christ’s passion. It is rugged and dramatic with a stark simplicity. The effect is powerful.

 

This church is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church designed in 1882 by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.

Gaudí combined Gothic and  Art Nouveau forms, devoting the remainder of his life to the project. He died in 1926 when not even a quarter of the project was complete. It won’t be finished until 2026.

In November 2010 Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica.

The Passion Façade, on the exterior of the church, was designed by Josep Maria Subirachs.
