  • Take a round train trip from Barcelona to visit Gaudí’s Crypt and the Colonia Güell
  • Explore Gaudí’s best-kept treasure and discover the masterpiece that inspired the Sagrada Familia
  • Walk through The Colonia Güell and experience the character of a classic industrial textile village from the late 19th Century

Visit Antoni Gaudí’s Crypt by train and learn all about his unfinished masterpiece, hidden in the 19th-century textile village of Colonia Güell. Grab a multilingual audioguide and discover the fascinating history and hidden secrets of this UNESCO-protected architectural wonder.

Take the train from Pl. Espanya FGC train station to discover the magnificent Crypt and Colonia Güell. To fully experience the site you'll get an audio guide that'll help you explore every beautiful detail.

The construction of Colonia Güell began in 1890, led by entrepreneur Eusebio Güell in the environs of Barcelona. In 1898 the architect Antoni Gaudí was commissioned to build the church of the Colonia. The construction began in 1908, but Güell’s death would set back the ambitious development.

Without financial support from Güell's family, Gaudí had to abandon the project, and the still 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 in the construction, which in turn inspired the Sagrada Familia.

The Crypt was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.

My visit to Gaudi’s Crypt and Colònia Güell was really good. The ticket I purchased gave me the advantage of being independent but I was supplied with a ‘flexible framework’ to support me during the day. The best of both worlds.

Nice journey for experience

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.

Visite extrêmement intéressante ; très belles constructions d'habitation dans le village et réalisation passionnante de l'architecte Gaudi au niveau de la crypte ; concernant cette dernière c'est sans doute un de ses projets les plus originaux et les plus intéressants qui porte d'ailleurs les fondements de la Sagrada Familia.
Le déplacement depuis Barcelone se fait facilement en train (20 min).
A recommander chaleureusement !
