The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is a complex built between 1901 and 1930, and it is still today a fully functional hospital, although there have been discussions to convert the complex to a museum sometime in the future.

Although the hospital's current buildings date from the 20th century, the Hospital de Sant Pau was founded in 1401 when six small medieval hospitals merged. The hospital's former buildings near the center of Barcelona date from the 15th century, and now house an art school (Escola Massana) and the National Library of Catalonia.

Since 2003 a new hospital building is placed to the north of the Domènech i Montaner modernist pavilions.
