Sagrada Família

"Sagrada Família", the neighborhood with the most visited monument.

It is a quiet residential area, with a typical Eixample street planning but with a constant flux of tourists. It has other Art Noveau monuments such as the Hospital Sant Pau.

Sagrada Família, formerly known as "el Poblet", is one of the neighborhoods that make up the Eixample district, in the center of Barcelona. Limits, to the northeast, to the with Carrer del Dos de Maig; to the southeast with Avinguda Diagonal; to the southwest with Carrer de Nàpols, Carrer del Rosselló and Carrer de Sardenya; and to the northwest with Carrer de Sant Antoni Maria Claret.

There is good bus and metro communication (Sagrada Família, Hospital Sant Pau, Encants and Glòries).

Approximately in the center of the neighborhood is located the temple of Gaudí, still under construction. Avinguda de Gaudí starts from this temple and ends the north end of the neighborhood where the "Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau" is located. This hospital was built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and is another magnificent work of Catalan modernism. Both buildings have been declared by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.
