So in most guide books, the Hospital Santa Pau is not really played up. In Rick Steves it is almost a footnote! We spent nearly 3 hours touring this architectural gem! This is one of the most unique and well thought out public buildings of...More

I cannot even conceive any country anywhere in the world building such a magnificent hospital for the common people. The architect was a visionary and the design was beautiful. A special highlight was the boardroom and the magnificent warm colours throughout. Well worth seeing

From the Sagrada Famiglia head up Avenue Gaudi to the grounds of Santa Creu e San Pau, once a hospital. A gem designed by Montaner in Art Nouveu style- buildings and gardens are spectacular.

This is a place which you barely hear about, but it is a wonderful surprise. It´s an old hospital, but now it is some kind of park/museum. It is really well preserved, and you can learn a little about its history and of Barcelona.
