Barcelona: Sant Pau Recinte Modernista Entry Ticket

1. Barcelona: Sant Pau Recinte Modernista Entry Ticket

Discover a masterpiece of Art Nouveau architecture with an entrance ticket to the world’s largest Art Nouveau site at the Sant Pau Recinte Modernista. Built between 1905 and 1930 from a design by the Modernista architect, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the Sant Pau Recinte complex was initially intended as a garden city to nurse the sick. It was used as a public hospital for a century, and has now been refurbished to its former splendor. By the late 19th century, the old Hospital de la Santa Creu in Barcelona's El Raval neighborhood needed to be relocated as it had become too small. The result was an ambitious project inspired by breakthroughs in health and hygiene. The institution has always been associated with charitable work, welfare, and the latest advances in healthcare. Marvel at the Modernista motifs of the renovated pavilions, and discover how the former hospital complex has become a knowledge campus for international organizations, such as the European Forest Institute, Casa Àsia, the Global University Network for Innovation, and the United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture, and Mobility. Delve into history of one of Barcelona’s most dazzling buildings. Stroll among the pavilions, set in gardens and connected by underground passage ways that showcase sculptures, stained glass and mosaics.

The problem was evaluating the tickets, because they sent me to look for them at the information of the Sagrada Familia and there they did not know anything. At last they gave us a provisional that upon entering San Pablo, they gave us the tickets.

Original, beautiful and it shows a lot of work. I went on a Monday since we thought there would not be so many people and we were right. Za the kids like it too.

Must do in Barcelona! The history is amazing but the space is also so beautiful! Definitely get the audio guide!

A fantastic experience, it is well worth it, the setting is beautiful and the lighting setup makes it special.

Really a good tour with a lot of info around Barcelona.
