Casa Convalescència

Casa Convalescència, one of the last works of Catalan Modernism, forms part of the historic premises of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, designed at the end of the 19th century to alleviate the lack of hospitals in Barcelona.
Due to advancements in medicine and the expansion of the city, the old Santa Creu hospital, established in 1401 and situated in the Old Town, became obsolete.

Its construction was directed by Pere Domènech i Roura, who collaborated with his father, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, and replaced him in the direction of works upon his death in 1923.

In 1930, coinciding with the visit of King Alfonso XIII to inaugurate the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Casa Convalescència opened its doors.
The Casa Convalescència enjoyed an independent life from the Hospital, with its own economy, kitchen and pharmacy. The building, which could accommodate up to 100 convalescent patients, stands out for its glazed solariums and for the walls covered with polychrome ceramic mosaics with historical motifs and plant elements.
The old chapel with a height of 27m and which divided the building into two wings, one for men and one for women, is currently the Aula Magna, the most emblematic meeting room in the building and with capacity up to 200 people.
The whole of Sant Pau’s historic modernist complex, which includes Casa Convalescència, was declared a World Heritage Site in 1997.
Casa Convalescència is a unique, cosmopolitan and welcoming building, which combines cultural heritage, the services and equipment necessary for holding conferences and events.
