The former Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (English: Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul) is located in El Guinardó. It is a complex design built between 1901 and 1930, designed by the Catalan modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Together with Palau de la Música Catalana, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It was a fully functioning hospital until June 2009, it is currently undergoing restoration for use as a museum and cultural center. As of December 2013 there are still tours of the hospital being given several times a day. The last part of its name, "Sant Pau", was added in honour of the banker, Pau Gil, who paid for the construction of the new buildings in the twentieth century.
