Gaudí was a man of many surprises, but perhaps his most hidden treasure is the Crypt, located inside the Colonia Güell. This unfinished architectural playground was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.

What did people work on here, within the walls of an integrated urban design that was, in its time, completely unprecedented?
