Tickets for 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 Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau 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.
