The former Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Catalan pronunciation: [uspiˈtal də lə ˈsantə ˈkɾɛw i ˈsam ˈpaw], English: Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul) in the neighborhood of El Guinardó, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, is a complex built between 1901 and 1930, designed by the Catalan modernisme architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Together with Palau de la Música Catalana, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Wow. We have been to Barcelona so many times, we decided to seek out somewhere different to see. This place is impressive. A big campus to explore. Art beauty, decoration. What a great idea to create a beautiful space for healing, for surgery, pharmacy, lab. All to help the poor and sick. I highly recommend.
It's incredible this place is not way more famous. Great architecture. Pretty quiet but slightly expensive. Still work in progress,so they could have had put s little cursive in the ticket. A nice tour takes exactly 90 minutes. The history of medicine last is also very cool
Shockingly beautiful. You have to pay to go in but the outdoor spaces beautiful and architecture is gorgeous. Very calm and peaceful too.
Sant Pau was not on the list when we came to Barcelona but the city tour suggested it and we're very glad it did. Storybook architecture and incredible history made for a pleasant morning walk arund its campus. Recommend that you plan to arrive in time for a guided tour. Very easy walk from here to Sagrada Familia (which is also an extraordinary experience and unlike any church you've ever seen). We was deeply impressed by the place: the architecture of the buildings and the restoration works. It is a good lesson of history of medicine.
If you are a fan of architecture you will probably find it really interesting. The complex is beautiful but you can only enter a few buildings out of many, and there isn't that much to see inside them. I think it's worth visiting but at €14 it's a bit overpriced.
This was a really random find, I didn't even mean to go here but I'm glad I did. I highly recommend this musuem. The history is so awesome and it's very well done. You can see a lot of the original hospital as well.
Beautiful building to look at from the outside. They have a large gift shop by the entrance. We didn't go inside but would have been tempted if we had more time.
My mother broke both ankles while on holiday in Barcelona and the staff here was incredibly helpful and treated my mother very well. Professional, clean and amazing staff here. ¡Muchos gracias!
This is a stunning collection of buildings. Once the main hospital for Barcelona it is now a museum showcasing architecture from a period of extravagance in Catalan history. From the outside it can feel surprising that such attention to detail was given to a structure that was a hospital. Inside, you are exposed to the ornate detailing and ceramics that are typically found throughout Barcelona. The museum has a small terrace bar outside. It really is worth a visit.
Beautiful hospital constructed in the 1800s. Oh by the way it was free health care system for the poor funded by the wealthy. Lots of history. Definitely worth the visit. And the trees in the courtyard is beautiful. Each small building is a ward dedicated to some disease/treatment focus. If you're interested in health care history great place to visit, or architecture.
A great sight to see! And strangely is not as famous as other sights in Barcelona. It turns out to be a whole complex of buildings that were a hospital complex in the past. Wonderful design and architecture. Listening to the story how it was designed and seeing how it looks, it made me feel said that the don’t create buildings the same way now days! Anyway, wonderful place and I am glad that I visited it, although the entry ticket is quite expensive!
Definitely a must visit in Barcelona. I do not understand why it is not one of the big sights. The architecture is wonderful. The buildings are lovely. It not so easy to find the entrance but that shouldn't be real problem. I recommend this place, as it is really a hidden spot. 5 out of 5.
Less popular but very beautiful place to visit if you are interested in art nuveau architecture. Do not expect much of a formal exhibition. It is just a lovely place to walk around.
I loved every details of that place. It is definitely a must see. The organisation of the space is beautiful, simple, clear, easy of access and clean. It has its own charm and special atmosphere, and taught me on the history of the city as much as the story of the place. The curators did a beautiful work, although the tickets are expensive considering that 40 minutes are more than enough to go around the place and sit in the central square.
Very nice old hospital. They are still doing some restoration but it's already a very nice building. I would really recommend visiting this place. Is it not in your interest region? Then you can also take nice pictures here.
Quite incredible for a hospital to have been built with this level of architectural detail. Impressive too that it has been preserved with such a passion. The exhibition tells you a lot about Barcelona since early 1900 and also how hospitals have evolved.
Something to not to miss if you visit Barcelona. Take the guided tour, that will give you a general overview of each building and stay afterwards to go around at your own time. You will enjoy both and get the best of your visit. Very interesting the photo exhibition in the tunnels. Do not forget to look at the details. Modernist art is always a delight för the eyes. Nothing to experience with kids. Boutique has very nice souvenirs. Have a look there.
