Unique buildings

The Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu

The Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu

Let yourselves be captivated by the buildings that were part of Barcelona"s main hospital until well into the 20th century. A look at the courtyards and high-ceilinged rooms which today house the Catalan library, the Biblioteca de Catalunya, art schools and other cultural organisations, will take you back to the atmosphere of a bygone age.
La Virreina. Centre de la Imatge

La Virreina. Centre de la Imatge

A baroque building welcomes you in Barcelona"s Rambla, past Carme street, and it will awaken your curiosity because its highly-decorated façade and the interior courtyard and staircases give a glimpse of wealth and power. Go inside Palau de la Virreina and maybe you will be surprised by some art exhibition organised there.
Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló

The colour and fantasy of the Casa Batlló captivates passers-by on the Passeig de Gràcia. Standing halfway up this elegant boulevard and in a strongly contrasting style to the neighbouring houses, the Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera, Gaudí"s building reveals the splendour of an architect who was able to work on this project with total creative freedom, Antoni Gaudí.
Basilica of la Sagrada Família

Basilica of la Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família is Antoni Gaudí"s best-known work and has become an undisputed symbol of Barcelona. This unique modern temple has been under construction since 1882, and is expected to be completed by 2026.
Sant Pau Recinte Modernista

Sant Pau Recinte Modernista

The Modernista Sant Pau Complex was built between 1905 and 1930 and designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a garden city for nursing the sick. After being used as a public hospital for a century, its newly refurbished pavilions shine again in all their splendour. A visit to this exceptional architectural ensemble is a unique experience.
