The Mighty Administration Building At Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Sant Pau

The heavy hits you right away at the Sant Pau hospital, the administration building entrance. It's huge and once you step inside, be prepared to be humbled.

The building.

Seriously? This ceiling is over a side staircase. At the top of the staircase, a combination of heavy Gothic and fanciful Art Nouveau.

Elaborate tile work. Warning, do not take LSD before touring. Not that we would know.

Not just elaborate, the tile work is in impressive 3D. You will not find these tiles at Home Depot. Even hallways are dripping in design.
An upstairs gallery, gaze-worthy.
