Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau: Medical tourism, Barcelona style

Boston Health News goes on vacation to Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau

A few blocks from the busy Sagrada Familia, tourists and historians can now visit the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, described as one of the oldest medical institutions in Europe and the largest Art Nouveau complex in the world. Unlike the church down the road, is has yet to be swarmed by tourists. Instead, find a quiet spot to explore both medical and architectural history. Three of the modernista pavilions and an exhibit space are open to the public during the ongoing renovations.
