A nice audioguided tour of the whole place, took about 1-1,5hr. The crypt itself is an architecture masterpiece and the rest of the area provides a very lovely atmosphere. Easily accessible by car / bus from the city. Worth visiting !

We did the 1 hour walking tour and found it enjoyable. The park is nice with a restricted section showing the houses and gardens.

It's a shame that the crypt is so incomplete but it is worth visiting. So is the rest of Colonia Guell for a day away from the bustle of Barcelona

Many people go to Colonia Guell just to see the crypt, an uncompleted church designed by Gaudi. If you are interested in knowing more about Gaudi's whole body of work, then a visit to this church is recommended. An audio guide (for the major buildings...More

You will need a Zone 2 card. It's just beyond the inner zone, about a 20 minute trip.
