A working hospital may not be on your list of must-sees for the city, but when it is as beautiful and unique as Sant Pau, it’s worth reconsidering. The grand and one-of-a-kind architecture of La Pau has made it such a tourist fascination that it is now open to the public for tours of the oldest buildings and features. Something that many don’t know before they visit is that there is still an intricate network of underground passages that house small carriages that were once used to transport patients, and which can be reached from ground level in the square between Banc de Sang and Quirofans.
Art enthusiasts should not go home without having first visited the famous Fundacio de Antoni Tapies in the nearby Carrer d’Arago. First opened in 1984 by the Catalan artist himself, the foundation was created with the intention to encourage the study and understanding of contemporary art, especially those local to Barcelona. Today, you can see many of the masterpieces from Tapies, as well as a number of temporary exhibitions which rotate throughout the calendar year and feature many local and international artists of note.
