Sant Pau Hospital

Sant Pau Hospital was the visionary work of architect Domènech i Montaner. In the early 1900s he envisaged a hospital that would help not just the bodies of hospital patients, but also their spirits. He saw the need for an environment that was not sterile but joyous and inspirational.

The result is an Art Nouveau complex of 16 pavilions and tranquil gardens. Mosaic art, domed ceilings, playful lines and polychromatic tiles all feature in this unique building and you can also explore the underground tunnels that connect the individual buildings.

It was such a beautiful place.. so bright and clean.. will want to visit when the renovation is complete. The tiquet system is quick and cheaper than buying tickets directly at the attractions.. used it several times whilst in Barcelona on holiday

A gem! I have been living here for 6 months and just finally got around to visiting this place. It was magical! No crowds and you can take your time to sit or walk around the campus. Bigger and more beautiful than expected! Worth going here over some of the other more touristy spots.

We expected so much more. It’s not a lot to visit and I don’t think it is worth spending the money to visit Sant Pau.
Yes, it has abeautiful architecture, but that’s all.
Good trip to do on a free day although. Don’t miss one of the important objectives for this one.

Beyond amazing place! Don’t miss it. Was far more beautiful than I ever imagined. I am sure the patients in this hospital were well cared for.
