Güell Cellars (1895-1901)

The industrialist Eusebi Güell, Gaudí's client and patron, was also a wine producer. He owned a large stretch of land with wine cultivation, which was elaborated and produced there. For the production of wine and its conservation, Güell commissioned Gaudí the development of some cellars which the architect built with the stone of the area so that they would be in harmony with the environment. In time, the building fell in disuse and is nowadays a restoration establishment.
