Gaudi’s Heritage

Gaudi’s work can be found mostly in Catalonia despite the fact that he also worked in other places of Spain such as Comillas (Cantabria), Astorga and León (Castilla y León) or Palma de Mallorca.

One of the trademarks of his work, particularly regarding the Crypt and the Colonia Güell is the relationship between the architect and Eusebi Güell after the latter’s trip to Paris to visit the Universal Exhibition of 1878. In that moment Gaudí, a 26 year old character, forged a true friendship with said man.

Gaudi’s work is usually classified between religious and residential, but in order to facilitate your visit we classify his works depending on geographical location; note we do highlight those that have been declare as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
