What is the Colonia Güell?

Colonie Güell is a workers' village founded by the Catalan industrialist Eusebi Güell in the 19th century. It was used to house the workers at his textile factory. Colonia Güell was an example of what is known as a "workers' village", where business owners created villages for their employees, providing them with homes, services and social facilities. As well as housing and factories, Colonia Güell included social amenities such as a school, parish house, theatre, shop, post office and other facilities to improve the quality of life for workers. Workers' villages were particularly common during the period of industrialisation in 19th and 20th century Europe.

What is Gaudí's Crypt?

Eusebi Güell, a patron of the arts and a lover of architecture, had a long relationship with Antoni Gaudí, the brilliant Catalan architect. This relationship gave rise to the Güell Palace (1885-1889) and the Park Güell (1900-1914). The Crypt of the Colonia Güell (1898-1915) was commissioned by the patron between these two other projects. Gaudí designed the entire project for the Colonia itself, but let his collaborators build it. He was, however, the architect of what was to become the church of Santa Coloma. Due to Eusebi Güell's illness and the end of his funding, the idea of a church was abandoned in favour of a simple crypt. It is this crypt that can be visited today. 

 

How is the Crypt of the Colonia Güell a prefiguration of the future Sagrada Família?

The Crypt of the Colonie Güell is a foreshadowing of the future Sagrada Família, as Gaudí incorporated here for the first time virtually all the architectural innovations that would later be found in the basilica. These include the catenary arches and the hyperbolic paraboloid exterior walls. There are also similarities in the furnishings and in the ornamental elements, such as the religiously symbolic mosaics. Finally, there are similarities in the materials used: basalt and limestone stones, bricks, fired ceramics, glass, trencadis, etc.

An incredible day at the Colonia Güell
What an incredible day at the Colonia Güell! I came with my family, and we were all impressed by Gaudí's creativity. The children loved the crypt, and we took so many photos. The church is also a must-see. It's a great place for a family day out.
