Modernism in Barcelona: Hospital de Sant Pau
© All Rights Reserved
Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, is a modernist complex designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner (see my April post: Gargoyles). The access pavilion at the intersection of carrer Sant Antoni Maria Claret and carrer Cartagena is covered with exposed brickwork, and features a tower clock on top. Inside you can admire the excellent stained glass by Mario Maragliano, a richly wrought staircase and these purple ceilings, that recall Islamic architecture. From all the amazing things I discovered inside (when I carry my camera I am much more aware of minor details around me) I prefer this precious lamp. Try to discover what's on top.
