The Colonia Güell is a textile village packed with surprises just 20 minutes outside Barcelona. Along with Park Güell and Palau Güell, Eusebi Güell requested that Gaudí design and oversee the construction of this area for the workers of his textile operations on the outskirts of Barcelona. The visitors have the opportunity to explore its streets while admiring the most important Catalan art-nouveau, or modernista buildings in the life of the village, which are of great architectural interest. The path through the industrial Colonia captivates tourists because of its charm and the tranquility this vestige of the Modernist era inspires through the palpable 19th century atmosphere kept alive between its streets and buildings. Currently, an important piece of historic and artistic heritage remains in the Colonia Güell.
