Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau

Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau is the masterpiece of architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, an avant-garde of the Catalan Modernisme movement. In the early 1900s, he envisioned a hospital that would not just heal the bodies of patients, but also their spirits. The resulting Sant Pau Hospital is an Art Nouveau complex boasting 16 pavilions, tranquil gardens, mosaic art, domed ceilings, playful pastel walls, and polychromatic tiles. The building feels less like a hospital and more like a surreal place of healing. Underground tunnels that connect the individual buildings are also open to visitors.

Casa Batlló

Gaudí's masterpiece, Casa Batlló located in the heart of Barcelona, was built in 1877. In 1904, the wealthy Batlló family asked Gaudí to build another in its place. Instead, he decided to renovate the building and did so in his own inimitable style. With a wavy animalistic facade, brilliant colors, and thought-provoking whimsical features everywhere (check out the roof terrace), this is a Gaudí wonder.
