Our guide to Montserrat & Gaudi’s Crypt-Colonia Güell
Visit two outstanding attractions in one day and discover a lesser-known piece of work by Gaudi on this fascinating day tour from Barcelona.
Start your day trip from Barcelona at Colonia Güell, a small worker's village built in 1882. Here, you will enjoy a guided visit of Antoni Gaudí's crypt, an impressive church, which Gaudí built but never fully finished.
Be impressed by the stunning architecture, which is similar to Gaudí’s most famous work – the beautiful Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
The next stop will be Montserrat, a rocky outcrop with extraordinary formations that will capture your attention as soon as you begin to approach.
It will seem even more impressive when you ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, a unique means of transport.
There you'll be able to visit the Benedictine monastery and kiss the Moreneta, an 11th-century wood carving of the patron saint of Catalonia, or explore the many paths inside the natural park on foot.
No other trip will allow you to enjoy nature, spirituality and architecture at the same time!
