Don't miss it! If you're in the Sagrada Familia area, this is a must-see....and if it's the first Sunday in the month, it's free! This was a working hospital until relatively recently, which is amazing as you walk around the various buildings. Historically, architecturally, socially...More

Can't belive this bundling used to be a hospital. Looks like a museum. Amazing entrance. Didnt go inside but visited this place twice - during a day and in the evening.. Stunning.. Worth just to have a walk up there to see it. Easy to...More

So in most guide books, the Hospital Santa Pau is not really played up. In Rick Steves it is almost a footnote! We spent nearly 3 hours touring this architectural gem! This is one of the most unique and well thought out public buildings of...More

Viewed from the front and all sides it is a feast for the eyes. Anyone visiting Barcelona must make this one of their stops.

I cannot even conceive any country anywhere in the world building such a magnificent hospital for the common people. The architect was a visionary and the design was beautiful. A special highlight was the boardroom and the magnificent warm colours throughout. Well worth seeing

This UNESCO World Heritage Site was absolutely incredible, there was so much to see. Hospitals these days could learn something from this hospital, it only stopped being used in 2007. Each block was for something different - infectious diseases, operations, men, women etc. People were...More

You must add this to your list! It is so stunningly beautiful. I have been in Barcelona numerous times and had never heard of it. Add to the agenda when you do Sagrada Familia....stroll down the Rambla in between them and stop for tapas and...More

Many years ago, maybe 16 years or so we took one of our first City breaks to Barcelona. After visiting Goudi’s stunning cathedral we took a stroll up to this hospital by chance. It was a fully up and running hospital then. Fast forward to...More

From the Sagrada Famiglia head up Avenue Gaudi to the grounds of Santa Creu e San Pau, once a hospital. A gem designed by Montaner in Art Nouveu style- buildings and gardens are spectacular.

It is unfortunate that this site is not better advertised in guide books and Barcelona tourist information because for my husband and I it was one of the top four sites to see in the city. The first time we passed it on our way...More

Hi, I didn't think that they celebrated Mass at the old hospital. If they do then I am sorry but I do not know the times.
