Hospital Sant Pau early XX century

The network of underground tunnels with projections of patients being strolled through its corridors like ghosts of the recent past is …brilliantly creepy, really well done!…after all lots of visitors in the past died there and many others were born or recovered!

The tunnels connect the different pavilions, and take you out to the gardens, from where you can enjoy the fascinating exteriors of the buildings and take amazing pictures.
