Cross at Sant Pau Hospital, Barcelona, Spain

Cross at Sant Pau Hospital, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

This cross is located in one of the parks inside Sant Pau Hospital. Remember you can admire Catalan art nouveau buildings like the one in the background if you visit the hospital (entrance is free) not faraway from Sagrada Familia. There are previous posts dealing with Sant Pau or San Pablo in Barcelona Photoblog so I recommend you browse my site for more. You will find out about the history behind the buildings or the work of the architect, Domenech i Montaner. Here is an example: Pillars of Catalan Art Nouveau.

  1. Very pretty!

    This picture has two tones! Blue and Brown...

    I like how the blue on the cathedral matches the blue from the sky!

    The colors flow nicely...

  3. Thanks my friends. Not precisely. There is a building where there are still nuns taking care of the ill but not in this block. The hospital is made up of many pavilions that are fully functional in spite of the cultural value of its architecture. A new hospital is being built near this compound to rescue the old Sant Pau and turn it into a museum.

  5. Both the cross and the building are quite ornate. Of course, that's part of what makes them interesting. Nice shot, Carlos!

  6. Great photos. I guess you know that your city and mine are twin cities :-)) I would not be able to take such great photos in Montpellier. Snif.

  8. Carlos,
    Magnificent shot of this beautiful cross and facade. And that sky! Catalan Art Nouveau has its own very distinct flavor and mix of elements here. I love how the blue in the tile work ties in with the blue of the sky. Nice to know this will be a treasured building to house a museum when the new hospital buildings are complete.
