About
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. The Crypt has been the first World Heritage Site to obtain the Biosphere certification

Being a Gaudi enthusiast is a must do, good to visit before going to Sagrada Familia. Short but nice visit, great building.

Not worth the money, avoid it!
Mar 2021
Only the crypt is worth a visit, all the other places are closed and private, so it's possible only to see the facades; moreover, at some point, the audio guide is suggesting to move to some parts of the Industrial Area, but it's private so impossible to do it, so the audio guide is describing places that cannot be viewed/visited. Sagrada Familia visit with audio guide costs 26 euros, and there are so many things to see, Colonia Guell is not worth 9.5 euros. Avoid it!

Not worth the cost
Sep 2020 • Family
This is the most expensive and worthless visit I’ve been to in a while. The €9.50 ticket will allow you entry to the very small, unfinished church + audioguide. The rest to the town can be visited without a ticket. The town is nice to visit: 10min. Definitely not worth the price!

If you love architecture you must go and visit the Crypt. It is small, but is magnificent and, because not to many people go, it is usually quite empty. You can see real design in here, from the columns and the beams, through the furniture, etc. The museum only shows a bit of history, some pictures, etc. Also, please remember you are helping a small community.

Unique even for Gaudi
Oct 2019 • Solo
An easy trip by train from Estacion España, this half day trip gives a chance to get out of the centre of Barcelona to the outskirts. The Colonia itself, as well as the crypt ( actually a small church) is also interesting as promoted the idea of better living and working conditions for factory staff. Amongst the houses on the colony are a few notable modernista works by lesser known architects of the period. As for Gaudi’s unfinished church. Remarkable. Not a right angle in the place. The famed art critic and historian Robert Hughes called it perhaps the greatest internal space in Europe. Judge for yourself but certainly special.

A must-see if possible
Oct 2019
The church was never finished so we were seeing only the crypt. Beautiful work, everything just shouts Gaudi's brilliant mind. Our tour also included a walk around the colonia itself and a visit to the small museum.

This was a great look a a house and design that was done by Gaudi for Guell. His confidence in Gaudi provided both money and visibility to Gaudi...and his career through the visibility f this project in Barcelona. We felt it was exceptionally well done and we’re glad we were able to visit this.

Very Interesting
Sep 2019 • Couples
We booked the Colonial Guell- Gaudi Crypt- Monserrat tour with Viator. Good tour with a very knowledgeable guide (Mark). The Gaudi Crypt is a very nice little church designed by Gaudi. Only a small port of the plan was ever completed. Lots of interesting details. Having a guide to explain things is very useful. Colonia Guell is worth a visit. Again, having a guide explain things is very useful. The tourist information centre has a nice display. You do not have an opportunity to see the inside of the houses as they are privately owned. Walking along the streets is nice enough.

Except for the crypt , NOT WORTH IT!!!!
Sep 2019
The crypt is beautiful and you can get a ticket to see only that. There is nothing else. All the buildings that housed the colonia employees, factory, school etc are all privately owned and people live in them, so they are literally charging for you to be able to walk into the town and look at a few buildings from the outside. BTW you can do just that without paying anything. The have a small exhibition in the building where you by the tickets but all in all not worth it, sees almost like a scam. They should tell you in advance there are no buildings you are allowed to go into except the church. I bet most people wouldn´t pay, I know I wouldn´t have. THIEVES!!! LADRONES!!!!! LES TIENEN QUE DECIR A LA GENTE ANTES QUE COMPREN SUS BILLETES QUE NO HAY NINGUN EDIFICIO EN QUE SE PUEDA ENTRAR. ES UN ROBO, NO VAYAN.

Church by Gaudi
Jul 2019 • Friends
While you can’t miss Gaudi’s influence in the architecture and design it’s nowhere near as impressive as his work in Barcelona itself. It’s a decent train ride or drive out of town to get to this one and is quite simple by comparison to other sites. If you do make the trip the stain glass windows are the highlight.

Entry is included with the Barcelona Pass and comes with an audio guide. However, be prepared to walk the local streets and learn the history of the tower itself as 75% of the audio track is focused on the town.
