  • What a nice surprise! A surprising and unusual visit. We also appreciate the calm. Take your time to stroll around between the pavilions and admire the architecture of the buildings. A very nice visit.

  • From the outside, the buildings by the beautiful Art Nouveau architecture impress. Inside diverse exhibitions and explanations. Outdoor wonderful shapes and colors. Ability to recover from other attractions. If you consider when this part is created and the medical principles are already implemented - all warning!

  • Review written by Francisco Hidalgo Maldonado old Hospital de la Santa Creu If views the Ramblas of Barcelona and want to get to know so many magical places as there is around, there will come a time, after doing a few fantastic finds, in which the stomach will begin to make Forum-Forum of appetite. Then, go to the market of la Boqueria, purchases and teak to put it in the Middle, a can of drink and, with all this, you go out just for the back. You'll see, in front of you, an architectural complex: is the old Hospital de la Santa Creu. The volteges by carrer del Carme and carrer Hospital and you enter through one of the portals. You will find another dimension: a large courtyard and surrounded by stone walls, 15th century Gothic cloister arches with a fountain in the Middle, a cross that ascends to heaven on a recargolada column, as well as banks and steps where you can sit down to eat your sandwich and let your imagination. It's all an oasis for the mind and the heart. Fantastic! PAC, the caminauta.

  • L'Hospital de la Santa Creu... As recorded in the annals, the hospital de la Santa Creu, was built to bring together in a single enclosure, the histories of patients from the city... In 1401, rose the first civil Gothic building in the city with medical purposes... Its architect was Guillem d´Abriell... Funny thing is the style, as being Gothic, followed with the parameters of the Romanesque, with inner cloister... 15 years later, the building with a Hall, Church, annex and studies Academy, was given the finishing... It continued to provide service to the dawn of 1900, when the new hospital was built with the same name under the auspices of the modernist style... Today it is used public library... The interior of the cloister with their ribs and their vaults, are worthy to admire...
