Description

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.

An amazing collection of buildings and gardens to wonder through and learn about how they were used and who were the people who conceived them and brought them into existence.

Recommended to come in the evening. The sights are beautiful. The PDF version of the tickets will need to be exchanged with entry tickets at the entrance. There was no queue as perhaps it's the off peak season. Entry was easy and there was no hassle
