One of the most significant contributions to modernism, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul) was designed by the Catalan architect, Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Although he planned the designs in the early 20th century, the Hospital de Sant Pau dates back to the early 15th century, when six tiny medieval hospitals converged into one. The mastermind, Domènech i Montaner, was also behind the design of another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Palau de la Música. Medicinal services have moved to new buildings, but the history and architectural beauty leaves much behind to visitors and fans of the unusual modernisme style.
