The architecture was interesting at the Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu, but I would return for the restaurant in the complex. It had a great atmosphere. Nestled in the central patio, you get a taste of history just sitting there.

This was one of my favorite sites in Barcelona. The refurbishment of the Hospital is spectacular. There are few crowds to contend with. I enjoyed this site as much if not more than Sagrada Familia.

Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
