Take the train from Plaza España FGC train station to discover the magnificent Crypt and Colonia Güell. To fully experience the site you will receive an audio guide, that will help you explore every detail.

The construction of Colonia Güell began in 1890 led by entrepreneur Eusebio Güell, in the environs of Barcelona. Eusebio Güell worked on improving the social conditions of his workers, providing them with cultural and religious facilities. In 1898 the architect Antonio Gaudí was commissioned to the project of building the church of the Colonia. The construction began in 1908, however Güell’s death set aside the ambitious development.

Without financial support from the Güell family, Gaudí had to abandon the project and the church remains incomplete. Even though the project is unfinished, the church is a culminating point of Gaudí's works. For the first time all of his architectural innovations are included into the construction, which later on led to the inspiration to build Sagrada Familia. The Crypt was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.

It was a nice little adventure to catch the subway and then the train to Colonia Guell . The village itself is very picturesque and Gaudi`s Crypt in particular with the usual quirky but meaningful architecture. It was well worth the trip and good value.

Treinreis was gemakkelijk en de crypte was mooi, iets kleiner dan verwacht. Toch een leuk uitstapje geweest.

Die "Colonia Güell" ist ein sehr schönes und beschauliches Örtchen. Auch die Crypta ist schön anzusehen und der Audio-Guide führt einen sehr gut durch die paar Straßen. Alles in allem war es für uns ein Tag, um außerhalb der Stadt Luft zu holen. Wer nicht so viel Zeit hat, um sich Barcelona anzusehen, sollte die Priorität für die Besichtigung der ehemaligen Kolonie eher nach hinten stellen, da es weit weniger spektakulär ist, als die Sehenswürdigkeiten in BCN. Nichtsdestotrotz hat es uns sehr gut gefallen und die 25 minütige Fahrt mit der S-Bahn hat sehr gut funktioniert.
