In 1898, Count Guell founded a village for the workers of his textile factory. Gaudi was commissioned to design a church for this settlement.
The earliest sketches were very similar to the Sagrada Familia, but the building was constructed in a completely different style.
The lower part of the church was built on a hill in 1908-1916. The building is characterized by the principle of 'inclined supports' and details of the Gothic style. The principle of 'tilted supports' allows free space design.
In the church, it is worth paying special attention to the mosaics located above the main entrance. Even the pews in the church were designed by Gaudi.
