El Hospital de Sant Pau (Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Sant Pau) es un conjunto de edificios situados en Barcelona (España), que fueron proyectados por el arquitecto Lluís Domènech i Montaner, uno de los principales representantes del modernismo catalán. Con su edificio principal y sus numerosos pabellones, el Hospital de Sant Pau es el conjunto más grande de la arquitectura modernista catalana.

Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Catalan for Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul) in the Guinardó, Barcelona, Catalonia, is a complex built between 1901 and 1930, designed by the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Together with Palau de la Música Catalana, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today it is still a fully functional hospital. There have been discussions to convert this building to a museum sometime in the future.
