Gaudi’s most hidden treasure, the Gaudi Crypt which is located inside the Colonia Guell, a textile village packed with surprises just 20 minutes outside Barcelona. The Crypt is the church of twisted columns, the laboratory for the Sagrada Familia which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.

Amazing crypt designed by Gaudi, where all architectural structures and designs later used in Sagrada Familia are found. The wooden benches inside the crypt were also designed by Gaudi.

This is an important building in the development of the techniques used by Gaudi. The Crypt is just a short metro ride from the City and the station is just a short walk away from the Crypt through a quaint typical Spanish village. All the...More

We had the crypt all to ourselves, which was nice after being at all of Gaudi's other busy attractions. However, we really only spent 30minutes there as it is tiny and unfinished. I'm not sure it was worth the effort of leaving Barcelona. The town...More

This trip included a train ride from the Espanya metro station. It was a bit out but interesting. The church was beautiful but not as amazing as the sites in Barcelona. The huge attraction is the little bar in town on the walking audio tour....More

So worth the visit to learn more about the history of Gűell and Gaudi. Small train journey away from city and so relaxing. Would love to live there

While smaller than La Sagrada Familia, the Crypt at Colonia Güell is Gaudi at his most experimental, with each element individually designed. In the Crypt, Gaudi was able to stretch his structural engineering genius to its limits. Tasked by Eusebi Güell in 1898 to build...More

The crypt is a precursor of the Sagrada Familia. It's very beautiful and nice to seat on benches designed by Gaudi. A lot less people than for the Sagrada. If you want to escape the crowd for a while don't hesitate. The village is very...More
