Sunday Sagrada

The Passion Facade.

At the front of the Sagrada Familia is the Passion Facade. Harsh, blocky sculptures, and a skeletal look.

Sculptures by Josep Maria Subirachs, designed to be dramatic, provoke fear and to be a reminder of Christs suffering.

Still not religious here, but this is just stunning.

Thank you for your comments and complete agreement of the magnificence of The Sagrada Familia. For those who asked - no I haven't been there *sob *wail. If you do post pics on your own blogs let me know so I can link 'em up.
