Don’t be fooled by the featured picture of this post, it’s not a mockup model, it’s a real recently opened to the public place in Barcelona, that we visited during the first week of the month while celebrating Damaris’ birthday, called Sant Pau Hospital.
There was a batch of phone pictures that finally not ended in our last As of late series, and because we thought that the stunning place deserves its dedicated post I’ll be sharing them with you today.
One of the things I like of living in a big city like Barcelona it’s the chance to rediscover wonderful buildings such as Sant Pau Hospital, an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 97′ defined as the world’s largest Art Nouveau site. It was running as a hospital until 2009, when the city council decided to turn it into a cultural center. There are still many pavilions closed under renovation, but since the beginning of the year the visitors can see the amazing courtyard and some of their main buildings.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit it if you ever come to Barcelona! The orange buildings are a heart breaker, do you agree?
eeep the tiles and pink ceiling are so super pretty, the first photo definitely look like a model – unbelievable! It must be really nice to live in a place with so much history and pretty architecture – three cheers for it being a World Heritage Site :)
Damaris insisted on taking the pictures of the tiles and pink ceilings, I’m starting to think that she is sort of an Australian girl at heart, hahaha it’s nice indeed to live and to visit, we’ll add it at our things-to-do-when-fee-and-ben-come-to-bcn list ;)
Wow! This place looks beautiful – the mosaics are amazing. Gorgeous photos too.
I’ve not been to Barcelona for a few years, I think it’s about time I go back sometime soon!
Thanks Sally! You definitely have to come back (and say hi) ;)
Amazing place! I remember just falling in love with tile work when I was in Spain as a teenager. Definitely need to visit Barcelona, finally.
Thanks Mariko! If Rick has not visited Barcelona yet it’s a good excuse to come back again, isn’t it?
beautiful indeed :)
Thanks Petra! We had great expectations but the place was worthy!
Beautiful pictures! The ceiling looks so unbelievably gorgeous! I would love to visit Barcelona one day. Thanks for sharing :)
Don’t miss Barcelona, you won’t regret it at all! ;)
Beautifull pictures! I love the pink ceiling ;)
Thanks Yasmine! Pink ceilings + beatiful tiles, not a bad combo in Damaris’ book (and I kind of agree after seeing the pics, not so sure about having it at our home though ;P)
Stunning! Want want to visit!
Don’t miss it if you ever come to bcn! ;)
Wow, that place doesn’t even look real!! Thanks for sharing! Makes me want to go back to Barcelona…
Thanks Chrystin! The place is so stunning that makes a new visit to Barcelona worthy, right?
I love when buildings are repurposed into cultural and art spaces. And the orange mood is amazing. Love it!!
Ups! I haven´t gone there yet, I even didn´t know it´s open now! I´m still landing in Bcn… When I have everything in order, I will definitely come to visit it, it looks gorgeous! x
