He engaged several renown architects among them Gaudí to build a residential area with a lot of amenities that were very progressive for that time such as a permanent doctor.
When visiting the village you will come across magnificent modernism buildings: from residential houses to the unfinished church of Gaud?. Only the lower nave was finished after Guëll stopped financing the project in 1914 and Gaudí focused on his top project: La Sagrada Familia.
