Hospital de la Santa Creu

Walk around the shaded gardens of this old hospital de La Santa Creu. Antoni Gaudi died here in 1926.

In 1401, six hospitals in the city of Barcelona merged to form the Hospital de la Santa Creu, a fine example of civilian gothic architecture. With the growth of the city and the advances in medicine in the 19th century, the centre was unable to meet the demands of the time and construction of a new building was proposed.

Thanks to the legacy of Pau Gil, a banker, the first stone of the new building was laid on January 15th, 1902. “Sant Pau” was added to the old name of “ la Santa Creu” to honour the wishes of its benefactor. The architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner was commissioned with the project.

Over the years, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau has become the most significant public building in Catalan modernisme.The architectural complex of Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is an unmistakable landmark in the culture and heritage of Barcelona city in particular and in Catalonia in general.

Its architectural and patrimonial value extends beyond its urban location and the site has won European and international acclaim. In 1997, together with the Palau de la Música Catalana (one of the world's leading concert halls), it was declared World Heritage by UNESCO for its singular architectural and artistic beauty

Gaudí va morir a l'Hospital de la Santa Creu!!!!

Confirmo el que diu un visiotant nostre! Gaudí va morir a l'Hospital de la Santa Creu, al carrer de l'Hospital, al Raval. Està perfectament documentat, i fins i tot hi ha testimonis vius, com Carlos Sentís, que va anar a veure en Gaudí amb el seu pare.

  2. gaudi n'y est pas mort.... - martine (24 Jul 2010 - 14:50)

    Non , Gaudi n'est pas mort dans cet hôpital ,qui rappelle étonnamment le "Palais de la Musique"...
    Il est mort ,après s'être fait renverser par un tram ,à l'hôpital
    San Pau ,au coeur de Barcelone...Cet établissement , édifié au Moyen Age, est resté hôpital jusqu'en 1926...
    Lors des obsèques de Gaudi , une foule immense attentait le départ du cortège funèbre qui sortit par la rue del Camen...
    Certes, on imagine très bien que le génial architecte ait pu mourir à la Santa Creu...non, il a rendu l'âme dans un lieu moins "flamboyant", mais néanmoins très beau et paisible qui sert maintenant de bibliothèque...
