Already visited La Sagrada Familia and Park Güell? Discover more of Gaudi’s modernist masterpieces with a visit to Colònia Güell, a 19th-century industrial village designed by Spain’s leading modernist architects. Admire the striking buildings and learn more about the historic site on a self-guided audio tour, then marvel at the UNESCO-listed Gaudi Crypt, where Gaudi trialed ideas for La Sagrada Familia.
  • Entrance ticket to Colònia Güell and its Gaudi Crypt, just outside Barcelona
  • Admire the 19th-century estate with its houses, school and administrative buildings
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed Gaudi Crypt, where Antoni Gaudi trialed architectural ideas for the Sagrada Familia
  • Ogle the spiraling columns, mosaics and flowing arches
  • Visit the exhibition that details the workers' lives and the ideals behind the village
  • Choice of several departure times
  • Self-guided tour offers greater flexibility
Make your own way to the Colonia Guell information and visitor center to pick up your audio guide, then set out to explore the highlights of Colonia Güell and the Gaudi Crypt independently.

Stroll around the 19th-century village as you hear how it was purpose-built by Eusebi Güell to accommodate workers at his nearby textile mill. Learn how Güell commissioned modernist architects to build the estate and admire the magnificent architecture, which fuses Catalan folk architecture with modernist elements such as turrets and trencadís mosaic tiling. See the historic mill, the school, the Co-operative headquarters and the terraced worker’s houses and gardens, and take a peek at the beautiful Ca L’Espinal, the masterpiece of Joan Rubió.

After exploring the village, make your way to the star attraction – the spectacular Gaudi Crypt. Hear how the church was designed by Antoni Gaudi back in 1882 and learn how it was used by the visionary architect to trial ideas for his magnum opus – the awe-inspiring La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Snap photos of the UNESCO-listed wonder from outside, then head inside to admire the exquisite arches, spiraling columns and two naves — built on different levels to fit the surrounding hillside.

It is a self guided tour which was good however in the detail description need to specify that this tour is outside of the Barcelona city limits which means you need to take Barcelona train not Barcelona metro.
