    The Sant Salvador Pavilion, the last building to be restored at the Art Nouveau Site, houses Sant Pau’s new exhibition space.  

    The building’s two floors are used to differentiate the languages that explain two core themes: the history of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau since its origins (1401) and a tribute to its architect, Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It is a contemporary recreation of a dragon, a characteristic iconographic motif throughout history that was revisited by the Modernistes.
