Have you ever been to a museum that was a hospital before? In 2014 Hospital de Sant Pau opened its doors for visitors and I wish that every hospital would look like this!
Although the hospital wasn’t designed by Gaudí, there’s – of course – a connection. After getting hit by a subway on his way to the construction site of the Sagrada Família, he died in this hospital in 1926. He was mistaken for a homeless and didn’t get the medical help he needed.
After Sant Pau we were strolling through the streets of Barri Gòtic, the centre of the old city of Barcelona. You can find some little shops and a market along the cobble stone streets that are quite cute.
Although we didn’t go in, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is also pretty to look at from the outside and worth a visit. The areal is quite big with a lot of fountains and columns – and popsicle booths 😉
