Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site

Sant Pau–the former Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau–is Barcelona’s latest wonder. The world’s largest Art Nouveau site has been restored and invites you to enjoy one of the most emblematic works of architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Built between 1901 and 1930 and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997, Sant Pau is a city within a city, with 12 buildings of great architectural value surrounded by gardens where history and architecture coexist side by side.

Do & See

Barcelona's impressive range of sights caters to all tastes – whether you're an architect, a designer, a football fan, a historian, or even a city planner – there is something for everyone in the most self-assured city on the Mediterranean. You can start your day by losing yourself in the narrow medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter, then take a stroll on La Rambla and Passeig de Gràcia, and why not enjoy the Meditteranean sun in one of the city's many stunning beaches? Just be sure to visit some of Gaudí's masterpieces, including La Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà, Casa Batlló, and the mesmerizing Park Güell.
