Details

Medicine was not what you'd expect at this former hospital, thanks to the work of visionary architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.

In the early 1900s, Montaner built something radical on the site of a medieval hospital - a brand new modern facility he hoped would provide patients with spirit-healing architectural and natural beauty.

It was an unheard-of concept back then, and it still feels revolutionary.

Explore the magnificent Modernisme complex with your guide and learn the intricacies of Montaner's vision. See 16 pavilions, a maze of underground tunnels, mosaic art, colored roof tiles, and other features that must have felt like medicine to those who needed it most.
