However, this is not the case with the Hospital de Sant Pau, an ensemble of buildings that form a complex architectural whole truly unique in the world whose importance in artistic as well as cultural terms has never really been properly acknowledged because of its intrinsic function.
In 1913, when the management of the old Hospital de la Santa Creu took possession of the land and of the few pavilions that had already been fully erected, they acquired the whole of the construction site and, in 1914, work on the rest of the pavilions was finally resumed.
The ensemble of buildings was considered completed in 1930, and all the departments of the old Hospital de la Santa Creu were transferred to their new quarters, even though only half of Domènech i Montaner's original project had been carried out.
