Several buildings of a hospital from 1900-1925, unforgettable visit. A real must. Since 2010 open for the public.

Built between 1907 and 1930 replacing a city centre hospital. Each ward block is a separate building. All spectacularly designed by Domenech y Montanyer and his son.

The hospital is now in adjoining buildings, up to date.

The old hospital is a world heritage site. There are tours of the site and grounds and you can enter some buildings.

It’s mainly accessible by wheelchair, but the route is not always well marked.

After leaving it’s a short downhill stroll on a cafe lined pedestrianised rambla to Sagrada Familia

It’s a bit out of the way. In fact, if you have any desire to see it, it’s best to combine with a visit to Sagrada Familia, which is a 12-15 minute walk. But you should have a desire to see it as it is wonderful. When you walk through the gates to the complex and see the imposing and fascinating front of the Administration Building, you might mistake it for a cathedral of sorts and indeed, I felt it was nicer than many cathedrals I have seen. If you go, you will know what I mean or you could get a sense by looking for pictures on the internet. As you read the history of this place and as you are walking the grounds and viewing the exteriors and the interior of the few buildings open to the public, you will get a greater appreciation for what makes Barcelona so special - a real caring for people and a desire to have a truly good place to live. This was one of those places that I did not want to leave, but there were other places to see and sadly we had to go.
There’s a tendency to place Gaudi on the pinnacle and almost ignore everyone else ( although Gaudi’s Park Guell, alone is enough reason to visit Barcelona ), but the architect of this project and of the magnificent Palau de Musica (which you should absolutely go to for both a concert and a guided tour – the best music venue I have ever seen, by far ) is not far behind behind. Indeed, together they make Barcelona an irresistable place to visit and if you are considering retiring overseas, an enticing possibility for a full and vibrant life.
We have been here three times and in my opinion there are four places you must go to on any trip to Barcelona. Some may argue with picking Park Guell as the first, but it is my favorite park in the world, hands down. It is the most interesting, inventive and just plain fun park anywhere. And the views of Barcelona are spectacular there. The endless and enthusiastic crowds there are testament to how special it is. To me, this is Gaudi’s crowning achievement, even more than the Sagrada Familia, as incredible as that is. I would say that is number two. Third, is the aforementioned Palau de Musica. Fourth, is Sant Pau. If you only had one day in Barcelona, make sure you see all four and it will be one of the best days you will ever have traveling.

Typical catalan modernist architecture from the end of 19th century. Well conserved and renewed. Buildings, garden, ..m it was active as hospital/ clinic since 1990 aprx. I use it to paint. Near Sagrada Famlia church, a 10 minutes Walk.

The place is stunning and really cool to visit and imagine the idea of this modern hospital and the purpose of the design.

If you already know the architecture of Gaudi, then you must complete your idea of Catalan Modernisme (art nouveau, or secessionism elsewhere) by visiting this architectural and decorative artist Modernisme masterwork. It is stunningly innovative and beautiful. One of my local friends told be that if I got to see nothing else, I should see this - and I can see why! Go here...
Travel tip: Funnily enough it took me 4 attempts before I found the right entrance, because the Museum is in the same block as the new hospital, several research centres and a branch of the university... The Museum gate is on the junction of Carrer de Sant Antoni Maria Claret, Avinguda de Gaudi, and Carrer de Cartagena.

This was an amazing tour of a spectacularly beautiful and interesting museum in what used to be a massive hospital complex. I enjoyed it very much. The only reason for not rating it a 5 is that the download for the audio tour is on the internet and not an app, and the museum does not offer wifi free or otherwise. If you are at all concerned about the cost of your wifi while traveling, this is a problem. I listened ahead a couple of stops then put my phone on airplane mode. But when you try to come back to the tour you have to download it again -- every blessed time. They either need to invest in an app or provide a printed brochure!

On another good note -- no line. There were maybe 10 of us in the whole complex.

I visited this shortly before covid started and I loved it. It was such a beautiful place and I enjoyed seeing what the hospital looked like so long ago vs today. The architecture is so stunning.

I loved this place! It should certainly be on peoples list of things to do whilst visiting Barcelona! The buildings and gardens were so beautiful and the history behind the place very interesting. I was very quiet when I visited which meant I could take my time and enjoy the buildings without many people about. Highly recommended!
