  • Repose in the beautiful gardens and feel the sense of tranquillity that the architect intended for the original patients in the early 20th century
  • Explore the vast property, take in 16 pavilions and marvel at the level of detail and the sense of joy in the architecture
  • Learn about the rich medical history of a hospital site that originally dates back to 1401

In the early 1900s, visionary architect Domènech i Montaner built something radical. On the site of a medieval hospital he designed a modern hospital that would provide patients with architectural and natural beauty that would help heal their spirits. It was an unheard of concept back then and it still feels revolutionary; explore the magnificent Art Nouveau complex that he devised.

The property comprises 16 pavilions, and includes underground tunnels and a sense of style that is characterized by mosaic art, colored roof tiles, intricate arches and fun, playful lines. There are courtyards and greenery that reflect Montaner’s conviction that flowers and trees could help patients more than a conventionally sterile environment. It’s a masterpiece, but not in the forbidding sense.

The building was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009, and the hospital is now located in the north-east of the district.

If you have ever worked in a hospital or had the misfortune to be a patient then you really should see this Modernisme twist. What is not to like about tiled tunnels, natural light in the operating theatre that is presided over by the angel of scrub nurses, incredible mosaics and best of all, being able to say, 'I am in the ward that features the birdhouse with the stars on top'?!?! We found this site to be serene, tranquil and it had plenty of seats so you could just sit and look at the unbelievable design and craftsmanship. Perhaps we were just lucky, but no huge rushing tour groups pushing you aside as they snatch a picture and rush off....equal to Casa Batlló in terms of humour and quirkiness but so much more enjoyable. Hopefully some of the areas undergoing renovation will open soon. Do not miss going upstairs in the old administration block....photo opportunity++++! Easy stroll from the Sagrada Familia and you shed the crowds as you go!

What an astonishing hidden gem! Calming beautiful pavilions with lots of history and modern flourishes. Put it on your list if you're visiting the city

This was an unexpected highlight of our visit to Barcelona - an amazing complex of Art Noveau buildings in a beautiful setting. Very few people seem to go or know about it which is sad because it is stunning and needs to be protected but on the other hand fewer crowds make for a more enjoyable visit. It is only about 500mts walk from Sagradia la famiglia. It also has an amazing history of health and community care as it was a hospital built by donation and it's care facilities and technology were years ahead of it's contemporaries.
If you like Gaudie architecture you will love this.
