Passeig de Sant Joan

Hospital de Sant Pau

This wide road is considered to be the border of the Golden Square. Although not as splendid as Passeig de Grācia this avenue is of interesting architectural value, with Tetuán and Verdaguer squares.

SALESAS CHURCH AND MONUMENT TO VERDAGUER

The Salesas church is at the corner of Passeig de Sant Joan and Calle Valčncia. It is a Gothic-style construction, built by Joan Martorell between 1882 and 1885. A few metres away, going toward Avinguda Diagonal, is the curious Claveguera (Sewer) museum, which introduces the visitor to the network of underground galleries of Barcelona. At the junction with Avinguda de Diagonal is the monument to Jacint Verdaguer, a priest and writer who defended Catalan language and culture, by Josep Maria Pericās (1924).

PALAU MACAYA

This is another masterpiece of the Barcelona modernist period, by the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. Along the lines of other modernist constructions which favoured the Gothic models, it is situated at Passeig de Sant Joan no. 108 and is currently the headquarters of the Cultural Centre of the Caixa de Pensions.
