How it Works

In a standard Sudoku puzzle, players fill a 9x9 grid so that each column, row, and 3x3 subgrid contains all of the digits from 1 to 9. The Sagrada Familia Sudoku adds an additional layer of complexity and beauty by incorporating patterns and symbols inspired by the basilica's design.

  1. Themed Grids: The puzzle grid may be adorned with motifs and symbols from the Sagrada Familia, such as its stained glass windows, intricate facades, or distinctive spires. These designs serve as both aesthetic elements and subtle hints for solving the puzzle.

  2. Symbolic Numbers: Instead of the usual numbers, the Sagrada Familia Sudoku can feature symbols or numbers that reflect aspects of Gaudí's work. This could include numerical sequences that have significance in the architecture of the basilica.

  3. Architectural Clues: Some versions of the puzzle might offer clues in the form of architectural details or historical facts about the Sagrada Familia, integrating learning with the challenge of solving the puzzle.
