  Hospital de Sant Pau
by morganna

If you like Gaudi architecture and modernism of Barcelona, why not walking just a few more from Sagrada Familia to get to Hospital de St. Pau? In my oppinion, is better than SaFa, a jewell of architecture and city planning. The architect was Domenech i Muntaner, the same of Palau de la Musica, another must to visit in BCN.

This hospital is not only a building, it's a whole little city with parks, avenues and different pavillions to stroll around...

Nowadays, there are guided tours inside. Only weekends at the morning, every 1/2 hour.

The hospital is still working today, but there is a new building where this year they are moving everything, and the old area will remain as cultural spot.

Address: St. Antoni Maria Claret, 167
Directions: Located at the end of Av Gaudi. Very easy if you are in Sagrada Familia, just follow this avenue!
Phone: Tel. 93.488.20.78 (guided tours)
