Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau: The Holy Cross

Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau: The Holy Cross
© All Rights Reserved

We go back to Hospital de Sant Pau to admire the ironwork at the main gates specially this reproduction of the Holy Cross reaching for the light like a sundial. Remember that the full name is Hospital de la Santa Creu (the original medieval building in carrer Hospital which united the first six Barcelona hospitals and built back in 1401) i Sant Pau (adopted from its benefactor's christian name to refer to the new modernist complex built by Domenech i Muntaner in 1902).

  4. Great pictures. I've been enjoying catching up. I especially love the amusement park pictures and that stained glass one is gorgeous. I may not have time to comment every single day but I will definitely stop by.
