  • Our guide was amazing. Super clear and interesting. Really worthy. Impressive building. It has been an honor to visit this World Heritage Site
  • What an amazing surprise! We decided last minute to visit the Recinte Modernista, and I'm so glad we did. It's a wonderful place with beautiful buildings and gardens, built out of love and dedication for fellow humans. I highly recommend the audioguide, which tells you a little about the history of this former hospital. I absolutely loved it :)
