The Nativity Facade of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain

The Nativity Facade of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain was completed between 1894 and 1930.  The architect, Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926), designed La Sagrada Familia in Art Nouveau style and the Nativity Facade does not fail to astonish the visitors to the Basilica.  Various scenes from Christ’s birth and early life are depicted, including the Annunciation, the Wedding of Mary and Joseph, and the Presentation in the Temple.  A sculpture of the Coronation of Mary is also depicted on this facade.
