What to expect

Tour Sagrada Familia

Discover one of Antoni Gaudí's treasures and one of the most visited buildings in the world. You will discover the astonishing interior of the church, where vaults reach seventy meters in height. Gaudí designed a Latin cross plan with five aisles, extremely rich in ornamentation and symbolism. You'll get to visit the Sagrada Familia museum, where you'll see drawings, plaster models and pictures narrating the history and development of this basilica from its early beginnings to the present day, all the while learning about Antoni Gaudí´s life and career.

At the end of the visit, your 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 Modernist of Santa Cruz and Sant Pau. During the walk along this route, the architectural elements of the avenue will be highlighted. It will take approximately 20-30 minutes to reach Sant Pau.

Tour Sant Pau Art Nouveau

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 Modernisme, the 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 takes 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 Modernisme: 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. Domes, roofs, façades, sculptures and stained-glass windows 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.
