The view of the whole complex of Sant Pau Hospital, now converted as the exhibition centre. The hospital is transferred a bit farther. The view from the entrance building.
The history of the Hospital de Santa Creu i de Sant Pau starts in the 11th century as pilgrim's hospice in the district of El Raval. The “Hospital de la Santa Creu” was created in 1401 by the merging of six smaller houses. In the 19th century, a new construction was necessary due to the constant growth of the city and the growing medical requirements.
With the construction of the hospital form 1902 to 1912, the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner achieved a masterpiece – a special human and in no ways sterile looking building that nevertheless met the highest medical standards. The hospital takes up one whole block, and the almost 30 buildings are situated in a park. The different pavilions have subterranean connections.
In 2001, the hospital de la Sante Creu i Sant Pau celebreated its 600th birthday, and it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
marvelous place to visit and as you can see, with few tourists and in the same time the area of Sagrada Familia is horribly crowded.

Hello Malgo,
Barcelona is truly a magical city. Most hospitals are sterile places, without much character or color, but this site is a masterpiece. Although these buildings are no longer used as a hospital, they are still amazing. I like your high POV. We can appreciate all the colors and details. This is a beautiful place, and a beautiful photo. :-)

Hello Malgo,

Reply to my picture, the trees to the left, are already the Netherlands, borders are almost not to see!

Malgo, I think one of your most beautiful pictures out of your career.
What a wonderful architecture with all the nice buildings.
Very sharp and clear.
Congratulations, one of my favourites.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend

Hello Malgo,

Would not want to visit a hospital if I am visiting another country. Except for this one.

So beautiful. Looks more like a resort or hotel complex.



Hi Malgo
This grandiose view of the Hospital de Sant Pau, here seems like a fantasy town, ideal as a stage for a musical, one of the best views I've seen of this place.
A fantastic photo, with beautiful natural colors, very good lighting and excellent clarity.
Well done. I love.
Enjoy the weekend.
Very best regards.

P.S. The trip from Scandinavia, I did it organized by an agency, although I like to go my own way, this was a bit complicated with four countries, flights, ferries, etc. And turned out well ..

Ciao Malgo,

Même si j'ai passé quelques jours dans cette magnifique ville, je ne me souviens pas d'avoir vu cette place et surtout cette architecture vraiment très élaborée. Superbe détails et lumière.



Hola Malgo, muy buena vista de este interesante y bello conjunto de edificios modernistas, muy bien compuesta y captada en esta buena y bonita fotografia. Una interesante imagen, con buena nitidez, profundidad, luz, color y calidad. Muy buen y bonito trabajo perfectamente realizado, mis felicitaciones amiga mia. Gracias por compartir este interesante trabajo.

Buena noche y feliz domingo.
Todo lo mejor desde el sur de España.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Hello Malgo,
WOW! This isn't just a wonderful design of one building. This is a complete city district!
What a splendid architecture! So many wonderful details!
Stunning colours, especially under that blue sky.
Excellent clear and sharp presentation.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Malgo,
Wow, this looks really special. The architecture of all the buildings here is really remarkable and you captured it all from a superb POV. The warm colours stand out so well against the perfectly blue sky too. It's very quiet around here, I can only count about seven people in or around the square.

Ciao Malgo
questo complesso è talmente bello che sembra un set cinematografico!!!
Le architetture sono fantastiche e i colori splendidi, impossibile pensare che si tratti di un ospedale.
Brava, hai trovato un ottimo pov per mostrarcelo al meglio.
Buona domenica

Hi Malgorzata,

The wideness of the square is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings. The light is giving good colors rendering. Have a nice day.


Ciao cara Malgo, great view of fantastic square, wonderful architectures,fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Czesc Malgo
Milo obejrzec swoje ulubione miejsce w Barcelonie. Chyba robilem kadr z tego samego miejsca. Swietna kolorystyka - to miejsce warto odwiedzic.
Po 20 czerwca moze mnie nie byc w Lodzi, ale jesli bedziecie wczesniej to milo bedzie sie spotkac

Czesc Malgorzata,
zagladam do Twojej galerii zeby zobaczyc czy nie ma czegos nowego z biezacej podrozy.
Tzn ja osobisciew podrozy zupelnie sie wylaczam z zycia i skupiam sie wylacznie na podrozy ale w pewnym sensie zawsze zazdroszcze Ci ze tak na biezaco relacjonujesz swoje wyprawy :)
To miejsce jest naprawde piekne! Pamietam ze czytalem o tym ale z braku czasu pominalem to miejsce. Wydaje mi sie ze bylo nieco oddalone ale i przeciez inne miejsca bywaly w Barcelonie oddalone a jednak tlumy sie tam pojawialy...
No nic -bedzie okazja zeby kiedys wrocic znowu i postaram sie pamietac o wrazeniu ktore zrobilo na mnie to zdjecie :)
Swietny punkt widzenia ktory pokazuje rozmach tego miejsca.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie,
