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

This UNESCO World Heritage Site was absolutely incredible, there was so much to see. Hospitals these days could learn something from this hospital, it only stopped being used in 2007. Each block was for something different - infectious diseases, operations, men, women etc. People were...More

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.

It is unfortunate that this site is not better advertised in guide books and Barcelona tourist information because for my husband and I it was one of the top four sites to see in the city. The first time we passed it on our way...More

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.
