Colonia Güell (Cologne Guell)
The Colonia Güell was an industrial colony that not only contained Eusebi Güell's textile factory but also the workers' houses and the buildings in which social and religious activities took place.
Today an open-air museum, it still preserves many of the buildings that constituted it and a very interesting museum that gives an account of the organisation and industrial importance of the time, as well as showing examples of modernist architecture of which the Crypt, a church designed by Antoni Gaudí, which is still unfinished, is considered a precursor of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
Located just a short train ride from Barcelona, Colonia Güell is a hidden gem and a must-see for lovers of Catalan modernisme and architecture.
