La Capella

The Chapel of the former Hospital is housed in the monumental-style installations of the Hospital de la Santa Creu and la Casa de la Convalescència, and is a building catalogued as a Historic Monument of National Interest.

A papal bull from Pope Benedict XII made construction of the Santa Creu hospital complex possible, and work began in 1401. This founding bull ratified the agreement reached by the City's Consell de Cent (Council of One Hundred), the Bishopric and the Cathedral Chapter to bring together in one sole institution all of the hospital services existing in the city at the time. The Santa Creu Hospital was created in a context in which Barcelona was immersed in a period of economic boom and the new institution was born under a modern concept of centralized management.

The Chapel is located in the Raval district of Barcelona in the city's historic centre. This is one of Barcelona's liveliest neighbourhoods, undergoing constant change and highly popular with tourists.
