Return to Barcelona 2017! Hospital Santa Creu i Sant Pau

One of the important places in Barcelona I did not get to see last time was the Hospital Santa Creu i Sant Pau. "The Modernista Sant Pau Complex was built between 1905 and 1930 and designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a garden city for nursing the sick. After being used as a public hospital for a century, its newly refurbished pavilions shine again in all their splendour. A visit to this exceptional architectural ensemble is a unique experience." according to the site Barcelona Tourisme.

We were blown away by the beauty of the site and all its pavilions. Hard to believe it was a hospital and not an resort! I will let the many images I took speak for themselves and recommend you visit the links provided to read more about the history and design.
