Day Trips around Catalonia

SITGES & GAUDÍ’S CRYPTbook-this-tour

colonia-guell-sitgesA day trip to Sitges and the unfinished church of Colonia Güell, a masterpiece created by Gaudí

Departing from Barcelona, our first stop will be Colonia Güell, a textile factory and estate founded by Eusebi Güell, who commissioned the architect Antoni Gaudí to design the estate’s church. Despite remaining unfinished, the Colonia Güell church represents a high point in Gaudí’s work. For the first time, almost all his architectural innovations are combined in this building where we already find the catenary arches which, while simplifying the load problem, also require the use of external, hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped walls.

After visiting Colonia Güell and its spectacular crypt, we will go on to Sitges, a seaside town with great beaches and excellent tourist facilities. Recognized as one of the most picturesque towns of the Catalan coast, it enjoys a mild micro climate, which means that visitors can enjoy enviable temperatures every month of the year. The town, on the shores the Mediterranean, has wide avenues, narrow streets in the centre, four museums and golden beaches.

  • This day trip includes a guided visit to the crypt designed by Gaudí in Colonia Güell (entrance fee is not included in the price)
