Francesca took me to Colonia Guell to bring to life Barcelona’s industrial age. Here is an old textile factory worker’s colony, and a half built Gaudi church. The factory donated a community...housing, schools and a church... in exchange for long hours of backbreaking work. There were lots and lots of these villages in and around Barcelona. Not very many survive all in one piece like this. Very cool little expedition 20 minutes from downtown. Ask for Ramon!!!
