This cultural centre for Asia and the Asian Pacific offers regular workshops, conferences and other social and cultural events.
The Sant Manuel pavilion in the stunning structure of the Hospital de Sant Pau houses the Casa Asia offices, as well as classrooms for courses and conference rooms for regular programming and the Mediateca-InfoAsia media library.
When there aren't any activities scheduled, this new venue isn't set up to receive tourists who want to take a gander as was their old spot in the jaw-droppingly ornate Palau Baró de Quadras (designed by Puig i Cadafalch in 1904). However, you can visit the modernist Sant Pau campus, which was designed by architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More info at: http://www.santpaubarcelona.org.
