Full description
Get to know one of Antoni Gaudi’s treasures. The famous architect Antoni Gaudí, one of the greatest innovators of his time worked and lived in Barcelona has left behind numerous treasures for the discerning tourist to discover in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia is one of the most visited buildings in the world. Visit the astonishing interior of this church, where vaults reach 70 meters. Antoni Gaudí designed a Latin cross plan with five aisles, extremely rich in ornamentation and symbolism. Visit the Sagrada Familia Museum, where you will see drawings, plaster models and pictures about the history and development of this basilica from its early beginnings to the present day. The museum will also give you valuable information about Antoni Gaudi's life and career. At the end of the tour in Sagrada Familia, the guide will take you to Avenida Gaudí, which runs diagonally, breaking the grid of the Eixample district to join two of the city's main modernist monuments, the atoning Temple of the Sagrada Familia and the enclosure modernism of Santa Cruz and Sant Pau. During the walk along this route, the architectural elements of the avenue will be highlighted. You will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes until you reach Sant Pau.

On a visit to the Art Nouveau site, you’ll be able to appreciate the foremost work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the most important architects of modernism, Catalan Art Nouveau, and the product of one of the most outstanding rehabilitation processes of recent years. The exhibition space in the Sant Salvador Pavilion will take you on a journey through the history of medicine in Barcelona and one of Europe’s oldest healthcare institutions: from the first unified hospital in the city’s Raval district in 1401, La Santa Creu, to the 21st-century. Display cases with medical materials and architectural elements, information panels, models and screens present part of the institution’s heritage collection. The upper floor of the building concentrates particularly on the figure and work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, exploring the three main aspects of this genius of modernism- the scholar, the architect and the ideologue. There is also a space for consultation where you can find out more about the institution thanks to an interactive table, books, publications and digitalized historic documents from the Archive of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.

Sant Salvador Pavilion marks the start of a recommended route around the outdoor spaces of the Art Nouveau site that reproduce the garden city model designed in the early 20th-century. As you stroll, admire the building’s lovely exteriors such as the domes, roofs, façades, sculptures and stained-glass windows which are the most outstanding elements. You can also enter the Sant Rafael Pavilion and see its interior exactly as it was designed at the start of the 20th-century. Moreover, you can take the underground tunnels communicating the various buildings and visit the most representative heritage spaces of the Administration Pavilion. The recommended route may vary according to the use being made of the spaces.
