    What a pleasant surprise!
    We explored this fabulous place independently. The experience was outstanding. The architecture was impressive and the tile work, especially on the ceilings is a real standout. It's a short walk from Sagrada Familia and well worth the time.

    Beautiful and serene
    Is this beautiful place under appreciated? How come there weren't many people when we went, but other tourist attractions were too crowded? At first we thought the ticket price was a bit too much. But after our tour, we were happy that we bought them. Highly recommend.

    Definitely a hidden gem in the city!
    We walked here after visiting Sagrada Familia. I did not book tickets in advance as I was not sure what time we would arrive here and I read there would be no trouble getting tickets on site. We arrived around noon on a Tuesday and had no issue getting tickets right away. It was not very crowded at all, and given the size of the property the people who were there were well spaced out. When researching for our trip, the Recinte Modernista was referenced numerous times as a hidden gem that we should visit when in the city, and I totally agree. Outside of the beautiful art-nouveau architecture, the history of the structures was fantastic, the display of assorted medical artifacts was interesting and landscaping lovely. Overall it is a very picturesque area. We did the self-guided visit (without audio guide) and found that a good way to explore the compound. There were a lot of crew and actors filming while we were there so we were unable to visit certain areas, but there was still a lot to see. If your budget and schedule allows, I would recommend visiting.

    Wonderful visit
    Beautiful facility. Working in healthcare, I feel privilege to tour a historic hospital. Seeing what was then and now was revealing of the advances made through science and time. I love this institution bec it was easy to enter. Not much waiting. Even though the web site specifies a time, we showed up over 40 mins late because we were lost and the staff were kind saying “not to worry.” Plenty of bathroom access and are very clean. A great place to visit and spend an entire morning marveling at all the visuals.

    Not to be missed attraction in Barcelona
    With so many must-see attractions in Barcelona, this is usually overlooked and it is a huge loss. It is an amazing site. Architecture and history is very interesting and ticket price is not bad in comparison with more famous sites. The only thing negative is that the pamphlet to guide us wan not really clear and it was hard to find things

    A Surprisingly Beautiful Building
    Having visited Barcelona before I thought I'd look a bit further afield for something different and this was on the radar and what a find it was. Built in 1902 and serving as a hospital from 1916 for nearly 100 years, clearly designed to help the patients with their mental health as well with plenty of greenery amongst the buildings. The buildings themselves have beautiful marble interior and are certainly different from any hospital you would have seen. At 16 euro each it wasn't cheap but on a sunny late spring day walking from building to building it was a good way to spend a morning and something a little bit different.

    Nice Experience Away From the Crowds
    If you are looking for an experience away from the chaos and crowds of the busy parts of Barcelona, this is your place. Sant Pau is a beautifully restored Barcelona hospital. The various buildings feature stunning architecture and professionally landscaped grounds. You will find Sant Pau to be very quiet and slow paced, which can be a nice respite from busier areas of Barcelona. They offer a high quality gift shop and many shops and restaurants are nearby. NOTE: You can get your ticket here as a combination ticket with the more popular Palau de la Musica Catalan.

    Beautiful Architecture
    I mean we went after seeing the La Sagrada Familia so it was not as impressive and we did not do the audio guide when the ticket box said not to due to some groups touring today. However, you learn a lot about the history of the place, the hospital care and design at the time. Lots of pavilions which were OK but the architecture was lovely. The main building was gorgeous and if face the main building where you would enter from the back on a sunny day, you can see the reflection of the pavilions behind you and the La Sagrada Familia straight-lined through the windows as well. We spent 1.5hrs here or so and it was worth the admission. We did not buy in advance due to lower season but during higher season; you may want to.

    Poor experience, terrible customer service
    The site is wonderful. I first visited it soon after it opened after its renovation. I have also been to see it illuminated. Part of the site is used by various organisations but most is open to the public. We took a friend who had not been before, bought the tickets on line including the audio sets. When we arrived we found out that it was being used for filming and not everywhere usually open would be available. Our request to change days was refused on the basis that they don’t give refunds. We did go in but most of the site was closed and we were repeatedly told by the film crew to move to somewhere else and not to speak. We left after about 15 minutes as we were only allowed access to three buildings. We complained when we were leaving. Staff were sympathetic and polite but unhelpful.

    Historical and an architectural masterpiece
    This building was formerly a hospital until 2009 and built between 1901 and 1930. The new hospital is built beside this building. The architecure is unique and amazing Art Nouveau) and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. It contains 12 pavilions connected through underground galleries. It really is a historical and architectural masterpiece and offers offers workspace to high-profile social organizations such as the WHO, Banco Farmacéutico, Barcelona Health Hub, EMEA, UN-HABITAT and more.

    A Hospital That You Really Should Visit!!
    What a fantastic place to visit! It is a World Heritage Art Nouveau site and well worth the €16 entry fee! The hospital was still in use in the early 1990’s but the original concept and building work was from the early 1820’s. Each different building had its own “speciality”, one for men, one for women, one for infectious diseases etc. They are being so well restored, it’s awe inspiring in places. There are artefacts from different time periods, including an old X-Ray machine and areas have been set out as to how they would have been utilised. There are also underground tunnels which connect each building that really make you think, how many people have walked through them, how many patients have been transported to a building, how many professionals have had to take a moment. If more hospitals were like this today I don’t think many people would mind having to be there!!

    Really cool and really random experience
    For me it was so so random coming here I was visiting a customer who is based at the Health Hub that uses one of the buildings on site. I never even knew this place existed getting through security was a bit of a faf but was able to look around to see the buildings after and they are very nice and cool. A thing that really confused me was at the bottom of the stairs for the private buildings was a sign saying not for visitors. That was not strictly true because I was visiting that building so I got a bit lost because of that. You cant really tell people somthing is not for visitors without them knowing what you are visiting.

    Modernist masterpiece
    Domenech i Muntaner is at least the equal of Gaudi. This is his master piece. And amazing hospital, with each ward block a separate pavilion. Amazing brick, tile, glazed ceramics. Each block connected underground by a white tiled central spine corridor. It’s accessible, with ramps and lifts. Really good half day.

    Well worth visiting
    This was not on our list of things to do in Barcelona but shortly before we left some friends strongly recommended it - they were correct it really is a worthwhile visit and fits in well to any visit to Barcelona to see the astounding architecture. Following our visit we walked to the La Sagrada Familia (15 - 20 minutes) down a pleasant cafe lined street much more pleasant than La Rambla!

Easy walk from La Sagrada Familia, the Saint Paul Hospital/ Museum is a truly exceptional building complex. Designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner in a Modernista style or Catalan art nouveau. He also designed the Palau de la Musica. If you liked the Music Palace then you would appreciate the architecture here as well. After visiting the La Sagrada this place was almost empty of people. The buildings present a history of medical services in Barcelona with several of the buildings restored to their original state. Bought tickets right at entrance, no line or wait.
If you enjoy taking photos and find hospitals interesting, then allow about 1 hour.

This site did not disappoint. The gorgeous art nouveau architecture, historical documentation, artifacts and the sheer size of the property were amazing. There are so many details in the tiles and edifices. Be sure to look closely. I enjoyed the easy pace, ability to linger, as it was not crowded at all. We highly recommended this as a stop for others in our group of 30. To think this hospital was started 600 years ago to serve the public is incredible. Go and see this gift to public health, science and mastery of architecture. Gaudi who?? Montaner was better and got his project done.

I went on a solo trip and arrived around 11:00. I would recommend to arrive early because a short time after there was a long line in front of the entrance. It was very interesting and you could read also everything in english! Must see when in BCN.

This is one of the architectural wonders of Barcelona and that means something in this city. It’s strange to realize that only some 15 years ago the activities ended because it feels like this place is a monument for a long time already. Maintenance is not fully up to standard and that is a shame. This is a true gem and deserves every euro.

Beautiful grounds and buildings without throngs of tourists. The architecture and history were perfect for a relaxing morning. Enjoyed this much more than other sights along the well travelled route (I'm looking at you Park Guell). Art nouveaux / modernist from early 1900's.

Stunning place! Incredible history, beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, really interesting & great value compared to other nearby venues!
We had audio guides which were very good, but most of the info was in the respective buildings anyway, & it’s easy to follow the route around.
We loved the ethos & atmosphere - & the relative calm!
I would visit this over other much more manic venues.

We visited here as part of the Barcelona Family Card. The active hospital and emergency room is immediately outside the Metro station, so we mistakenly went to the wrong entrance first. We were kindly directed around the block to the correct site. There is much to learn around the campus about the history of the hospital and architecture. We loved exploring the different buildings and tunnels. The written information was in 3-4 languages including English.

I almost hate to review this place as it is a hidden gems without large crowds. If you like architecture at all, you must go here. It's beautiful and an amazing concept of a hospital that was well before it's time. I could spend hours just wondering and sitting in the space. We lucked out and went on day that was free to the public but missed getting an audioguide. We were able to enjoy and learn about the history without but would like to go back someday an learn more.

Just up the Av de Gaudi from Sagrada Familia is this spectacular peaceful haven where you can relax away from the crowds at the Sagrada. It is an old art nouveau hospital that has been refurbished. On arrival the awesome central facade with a huge clock tower greets you. Inside the 26 rooms (not all were open) have beautiful ceilings and you get a history of the hospital. There is an immaculate ward laid out as if it is awaiting new patients. There are displays of old medical equipment including an old x-ray machine, operating implements and even an original Boots the Chemist inhaler. There are sculptures and mosaic panels and colourful ceramic roof tiles. The grounds are well laid out with plants, citrus trees and shady trees to sit under and relax.

An old hospital built in the art nouveau style in the early 20th century.
Consisting of numerous buildings, some are available to view inside, others are still being restored
There are numerous exhibits inside to view, but our opinion is that at €15 there was not enough to do for the money, compared to other places we have been.
