Route a la Carte: The Hospital of the Holy Cross, the heart of monumental Raval

El Raval was an area that housed until the second half of the eighteenth century a large number of convents and hospitals.
From that time the great monumental group of the Hospital de la Santa Creu, which functioned as such until 1926 is preserved.

This route will help us discover the different buildings that made up this group and that are unknown to most locals: The hospital with its cloister of the fifteenth century, the nursing facility -a seventeenth century palace now houses the Institut d’Estudis Catalans- that still retains one of the few city terrace gardens, the surgery theater from eighteenth century and the Royal Academy of Pharmacy.
