Sagrada Família Tower question

Recommended Posts

I am about to book a tour at the Sagrada Família, and it is asking me which tower I want to go up.    The Tower on the Passion facade or the Tower on the Nativity facade.  Is one better than the other?

It depends on the time of day. From memory, morning Nativity and afternoon Passion, but I can’t find the source of the info!


The steps are very narrow and tight (with no handrail) on the way down, so you need a good head for heights

I actually asked this same question about 2 months ago before our trip. Then I just googled it. The Passion tower has better views, but the Nativity one was the one actually designed by Gaudi. Plus, the Passion tower is taller. And yes, you take an elevator to go up, but then the narrow, winding stairs to come back down.


A couple of views from our trip up the Passion tower....




This is looking down at the basilica when we were up there.
