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.

La génie de Gaudi sans les foules. Ici, il est possible de contempler le travail de Gaudi dans le calme et voir comment son œuvre faisait partie d'un projet sociétal.

Ein wunderbarer Ort, da beschaulich und eindrucksvoll, wie diese Arbeitersiedlung entstanden ist. Zum Glück, touristisch nicht überlaufen, im April, als wir da waren
