  • 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.

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.
