The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (HSP) was created in 1401, in Barcelona. It is currently situated in several different Art Nouveau pavilions which have been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO and are of patent cultural and tourist interest. The hospital is building a new site that will concentrate healthcare activity. The pavilions and surrounding gardens will host teaching and research activities, together with new cultural and social uses. HSP believes that, in the 21st century, a hospital must be regarded as a knowledge centre, which involves engaging in popularisation activities aimed at stimulating the scientific and medical culture of the population. This is why the hospital area will become a knowledge park on health sciences.
