Sagrada Familia - Barcelona, Spain

Sagrada Familia aspires to be a symbolic construction. It has three monumental façades: the east front, dedicated to the Birth of Christ; the west front, dedicated to the Passion and Death; and the south front, the façade of the Glorification, the largest of all. The four towers of each of the three façades jointly symbolise the twelve apostles. A dome- shaped tower which crowns the apse is the symbol of the Mother of God, and the four large towers dedicated to the evangelists encircle the central spire, which symbolises the Saviour.
