From afar, the Sagrada Familia is a towering Gothic structure that dominates the skyline of Barcelona. But if you get closer and look up, you’ll find yourself wondering on what the symbols on its facade mean or stand for. However, if you’re a devout Christian or Catholic, these symbols are easy peasy for you, right? I went to a Catholic High School, so, I’m kinda familiar to some of them.
The facade of Sagrada Familia is divided into three main gates. As you can see in the following photos below, they’re not your ordinary church doors. They’re grand and replete with tiny, detailed sculptures of religious origin.
