History and description:
Project of the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner made in the year 1901. Domènech applied in that project the experience to build another big sanitary complex the Institut Pere Matas in Reus. Construction finished in 1930. 1913 Barcelona Municipality award.
The Saint Paul Hospital is a monumental ensemble which the initial project included an enormous surface the Eixample (the modern part of Barcelona city).
The first project step was the donation of the banker Pau Gil (four million pessetes of that period) to build an hospital covering all the medical requirements at the maximum level.
The first project comprised 48 pavilions which finally only 27 was built. The long period devoted to the construction of the hospital, is a demonstration of it's complexity and size.
Between the different pavilions, the administration is the most important. The access is made trough a flight of steps. In each side of that pavilion, there is the Library-Museum and the Secretary-Archives.
The very impressive church was built near the administration pavilion.
We will only mention some of the artists who collaborated with Domènech i Montaner (following Permanyer), specially Eusebi Arnau and Pau Gargallo sculptors of stone figures. The painter and mosaics designer Francesc Labarta. Forged iron was made by Josep Perpinyà.
