Barcelona: Sant Pau Recinte Modernista Entry Ticket

It was used as a public hospital for a century, and has now been refurbished to its former splendor. By the late 19th century, the old Hospital de la Santa Creu in Barcelona's El Raval neighborhood needed to be relocated as it had become too small. The result was an ambitious project inspired by breakthroughs in health and hygiene. The institution has always been associated with charitable work, welfare, and the latest advances in healthcare. Marvel at the Modernista motifs of the renovated pavilions, and discover how the former hospital complex has become a knowledge campus for international organizations, such as the European Forest Institute, Casa Àsia, the Global University Network for Innovation, and the United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture, and Mobility.

It was fantastic. If you want to see Barcelona it is the best option. You can get off at any of its stops to see monuments, visit the sites and get back on to continue the route. If you want to see everything, I recommend that you take the two-day voucher, and thus each day a different route

Great experience! Visiting first time Barcelona from Miami. Tony was the best tour guide! Very good at explaining everything from historical information to the process of wine making. Definately would do again.

Nice to do. If you want to do both routes, buy a ticket for 2 days in the app. Both routes in one day with occasional excursions is quite a lot.

Great way to travel and see Barcelona , timely efficient informative.

Excellent tour of the city and interesting places.
