Gaudí Church's Crypt of the Colonia Güell
The Gaudí Crypt which is located inside the Colonia Güell, a textile village packed with surprises just 20 minutes outside Barcelona. The Crypt is the church of twisted columns, the laboratory for the Sagrada Família and it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005. You’ll be amazed at the Crypt, where the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí experimented with many architectural solutions. In addition to Gaudí’s building, the Colonia Güell gives visitors the opportunity to explore its streets while admiring the most important Catalan art-nouveau, or modernista buildings in the life of the village, which are of great architectural interest. Also visit the Interpretation Centre inside the former workers’ cooperative. The centre has a permanent exhibit that provides the keys to understanding the village as a whole and the church in particular.
The guided tour of the Colonia Güell now includes a visit to Gaudí’s Garden. Located behind the crypt, the garden will exhibit elements that Gaudí planned to incorporate into the church but was never able to after construction was halted.
