Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site: Nostra Senyora de la Mercè (7)

This pavilion dates from 1905 – 1912 and was used for Maternity, Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

After over eighty years as the site of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau the Art Nouveau site has been transformed into a research centre with international organisations from Healthcare, Sustainability and Education. At present there are seven institutions housed on this complex. Lucky workers!

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I am struggling to recall one location that has provided so many delightful posts. I posted quite a lot about the Lake District, but that is a huge area. This is the place that keeps on giving, undoubtedly!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Only the Saint Rafael which was empty, but shows how the ward once was, the Operations building, but that too was empty and the Administration Building which really knocks your socks off!
