What is it?

The House of Convalescence of the old Hospital of the Holy Cross is one of the last Renaissance buildings that were made in Barcelona just before the irruption of the baroque. It was built at the end of the 17th century attached to the wall of the hospital, so that the patients could finish their recovery.

The ceramic decoration of the House of Convalescence constitutes one of the most remarkable collections of all the Catalan ceramics, highlighting the ceiling of the main hall, work of the ceramist Llorenç Passoles. Without letting pass the precious painting of the chapel of Saint Paul by Josep Bal, considered the Catalan Sistine Chapel, a masterpiece and well preserved.

Protecting the cloister is the sculpture of Saint Paul, work of Lluís Bonifaç, crowns the central water well that provided water to the entire House.

Currently the building includes the Institute of Catalan Studies since 1931, an institution dedicated to the dissemination and research of Catalan culture and sciences.
