I was lucky to get there after a restoration - all the historic pavilions look like they were just finished by Domènech i Montaner))) There is an exibition related to the all the huge work that was made by the restorating team during the last years.

if i can visit 3 places in BCN, this will be one of them that I will visit.
this place just finished renovation and it amazing, the design was done the same architect as palau de la musica catalana. Eventhrough they havent finish on all building but it is still amazing. My partner was so in love with this place, she just couldnt stop taking photo. there is a small exhibition on how the building was use during the hospital time.
we didnt plan to visit this place but I saw it from Sagrada,so we decided to check out what is the place and it was amazing finds.

The architect who built this hospital more than a century ago had understood the necessity to talk to users and understand their needs before drawing and building. The result is a hospital incredibly modern both in its concept and its details. To understand this aspect and go further than the appearance, the guided tour (around 1.5 hour) is a must although the English is perfectible. Check the timetable on internet as there are not that many tours per day. It is also possible to walk around the whole site independently, only a few areas are reserved for guided tours.
The renovation took a long time as it included demolition of whole floors and various medical installations but it is a true aesthetical and historical success (world heritage site)
The nearest metro station is Sant Pau/dos de Maig (not hospital de Sant Pau). Sagrada familia is within walking distance. A few small and cheap but decent restaurants can be found in a radius of 200m from the entrance. There is a snack (not tested) on the site just near the entrance.
A must in Barcelona whoever you are, a double-must if you study architecture to learn how to understand users needs !

This place is simply amazing - the architecture, the fantastic colours, the concept of the design, all of which was still in use until a couple of years ago. We paid extra for a guided tour however I wouldn't suggest it. Do not miss, you can even walk to it from Sagrada Familia
