Why You Shouldn’t Miss This Colònia Güell is an industrial town built during the 19th century in the city of Santa Coloma de Cervelló, situated 20 kilometers south-west of Barcelona. It was made to improve the quality of life of those who worked at the textile mill owned by Eusebi Güell. The buildings are constructed in the popular modernist style of architecture, and theatres, schools, shops, gardens and an Athenaeum were built. Ca l’Ordal is a building in Colònia Güell that was inspired by the traditional Spanish country houses. Designed by Francesc Berenguer and Joan Rubió, the brick structure gives a view into the life of people living in this era. Ca L’Espinal is another example of the modernist architecture. It is considered to be the finest building in Colònia Güell. A church was commissioned to the famous designer Antoni Gaudí to be constructed at Colònia Güell. Due to the withdrawal of funding, the church remained unfinished. Several of Gaudí’s famous architectural innovations were first implemented here. Walls and vaults are in the form of hyperbolic parabolas. Most of the structure is decorated by broken mosaic tiling, called “trencadís.” This allows the structure to merge into the natural surroundings. The unfinished church, now known as a crypt was completed by local architects in 2000. They managed to repair the roof of the crypt, which would have served as the floor to the church. Your Experience The meeting point is outside the attraction itself. There are two variants to choose from during the time of booking. One of the two has an audioguide tour included. Both of them, however, have exclusive skip the line entry, with which you can bypass the queues. You are required to leave some form of identification (ID) as a deposit for the audioguide. The highlight of the tour is the hidden treasure, the Gaudí crypt. The church, although unfinished, is one of the best examples of Antoni Gaudí’s work. Witnessing the beauty of it firsthand is a breathtaking experience. The catenary arches and parabolically shaped walls of the crypt with the lush green backdrop make for a splendid sight. You can explore the crypt at your own pace, as well as the laboratory. You can visit the Gaudí laboratory, where he experimented continuously to discover new innovations, which he later used in the Sagrada Familia. The audioguide will give you a comprehensive history of the entire region. Since the industrial town is situated away from the city, the surrounding greenery fits in perfectly with the style of architecture. You can see the same buildings in their impeccable state, which have been meticulously maintained and conserved. When you have finished touring the place, you must return the audioguide 10 minutes before the Visitor’s Centre closes.

Why You Shouldn’t Miss This An industrial town built in the late 19th century, Colònia Güell served as a home for the people who worked in the nearby mill. Several eminent modernist architects were commissioned to build this town and the strong modernist style influence is visible throughout Colònia Güell. Theatres, schools, gardens and an Athenaeum were erected here during the 19th century. Buildings were constructed primarily using bricks and stone and most of the buildings remain in their pristine condition due to the renovation efforts at Colònia Güell. Ca l’Ordal is a traditional Spanish country house, resembling many such houses that served as homes to locals who worked at the mill. Designed by Francesc Berenguer and Joan Rubió, it represents the popular style of architecture during the 19th century and the brick structure gives a view into the life of people living in this era. Ca L’Espinal is considered one of the finest examples of modernist architecture. One of the highest quality buildings in Colonia Guell, this massive structure is an appealing sight. In the early 20th century, Antoni Gaudí was one of the most sought-after architects in Spain. His innovations and designs were spectacular, and several monuments across the country had been commissioned to him. Eusebi Güell decided to appoint Gaudi to build a church in the town of Colònia Güell. The Güell family, however, withdrew funding, and as a result, the church was unfinished. Presently, it is called Gaudi’s crypt. Gaudi also had a laboratory here, where he came up with innovative architectural marvels. Most of his work for the Sagrada Familia was inspired at this location. The crypt itself is a spectacular sight, although it is not fully complete. The geometric patterns and vibrant colors of the stained glasswork make this one of the greatest unfinished works of art in the world. The monument blends wonderfully into nature and is a testament to the genius of Antoni Gaudí. Recently, an effort by the local architects resulted in a partial completion of the crypt. Presently, people can stand on the roof, which was initially to serve as the floor of the church. Your Experience A train ride will take you from Barcelona to Colònia Güell. The train from Barcelona to Colonia Güell takes around 25 minutes. The meeting point for the train ride is from the station Plaça Espanya. The two way ticket is valid for two zones, an entrance into the famous Gaudi crypt and the audioguide. Once you’ve reached the destination, follow the signs to get to Colonia Güell. From there, walk a couple of minutes, again following the signs, to the Visitors' Center, where you will be given an audioguide and a map in order to start your visit. You are required to deposit some form of identification (ID) as a deposit until the audioguide is returned. Walking through the streets of Colònia Güell will leave you with a sense of tranquility and peace. The surroundings, buildings and serene atmosphere of the place make it an unforgettable experience. From colorful buildings to ancient stone structures, Colònia Güell is filled with eye-catching surprises. The most visited attraction in Colònia Güell is the Gaudi crypt. The massive structure was built using broken decorative mosaic, called "trencadís," and you can see how it merges with the greenery surrounding it. The ornamental touches of Gaudi are very apparent, with multicolored stained glass filtering light into the church. You can observe the trademark catenary arches and walls in the shape of parabolas. Traditional buttresses and some leaning pillars can be found on the exterior of the crypt. The audio guide will provide you with a detailed history of the place. You can explore the beauty of Colònia Güell and relax in its calming atmosphere, away from the bustling city. When you have finished touring the place, you must return the audioguide 10 minutes before the Visitors Centre closes, post which you can return to Barcelona.
