The building has a stone and brick facade with brick lattice work and a medieval style corner turret. The colony was begun in 1890 on Guell's estate Can Soler de la Torre, with a hospital, boardinghouse, schools, shops, theatres, chapel, factories and workers' housing. The Catalan Modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, 1852-1926, was in charge of the project, collaborating with Francesc Berenguer, Joan Rubio and Josep Canaleta. Picture by Manuel Cohen
