Colonia Güell Tours

star-4
26 Reviews
Colonia Güell
Barcelona teems with modernist architecture, including several notable buildings by famed Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Fans of this architectural style can immerse themselves in it with a short trip south to Colonia Güell, a modernist industrial village commissioned by Eusebi Güell and home to a Gaudi-designed crypt.
 
The Basics
Colonia Güell, the largest modernist colony in Catalonia, no longer houses textile workers. Today, the red-brick complex attracts visitors who come to take a step back into its 19th-century atmosphere.
 
Travelers can choose between a basic entrance ticket (including Gaudi’s Crypt) or opt for a combo ticket with included round-trip transportation from Barcelona. Both include an audio guide in English. Visitors pressed for time can combine a visit to Colonia Güell with a tour of Montserrat in a single day trip.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Colonia Güell and Gaudi’s Crypt are a must-see for architecture buffs.
  • Consider booking your tickets ahead of time to save time queuing up at the ticket office.
  • Wi-Fi and restrooms are available in the Visitors’ Center.
  • Colonia Güell and the crypt are accessible to wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There
The colony is located about 20 minutes south of Barcelona. To get there by train, take line S4 from Plaça d’Espanya. After exiting the station, blue steps on the floor lead to the Visitors’ Center.
 
When to Get There
Colonia Güell is open daily throughout the year, with reduced hours during the winter season (January to April).
 
Colonia Güell and La Sagrada Familia
As the village for Güell’s textile workers was being designed, Antoni Gaudi was tasked with building the colony’s church. It broke ground in 1908. After only eight years, though, enthusiasm for the project fizzled with only the crypt completed. Many experts believe that Gaudi’s work on the crypt was a prototype for what would become his magnum opus, the Sagrada Familia.

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.
