Clock Tower Detail, Sant Pau Hospital, Barcelona

Clock on Sant Pau Hospital's church spire [enlarge]

Sant Pau Hospital is by far one of the most spectacular examples of Catalan Art Nouveau or what is known as Modernisme. Plenty of posts in Barcelona Photoblog fully cover this historical place from almost every angle. At the main entrance, you face a graceful spire, rather thin if compared with similar church architectural structures in my opinion and taking into account the considerable dimensions of its clock. I've seen many images of the entrance and the remarkable spire but I always wondered what it would look like from a very short distance. This is the result with some evident color treatment to enhance its beauty. In case you want to know more about Sant Pau Hospital by Lluis Domenech i Montaner and other artists please check: Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau posts or all the images in one set on Flickr.

Efecto sorprendente, me agrada la manera en que la luz entra en los rincones menos inesperados de la pieza de arte.

Saludos Carlos.

I am thrilled to have stumbled across your blog, and look forward to following along! I just returned from a trip to Spain, and Barcelona was my favorite of all the places we visited. I suspect that your wonderful photos and stories will help me miss it just a tiny bit less! Thank you!
