Capella de l'Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu (Chapel of the Old Hospital of the Holy Cross)

Updated 03/10/2014

Fodor's Review

Now an art gallery, the chapel is generally open for a browse through an art or photography exhibit and a look at the lovely vaults and arches. The sculpture over the chapel door is a baroque 18th-century representation of Charity by Pere Costa, who also did the lower part of the facade of the unfinished Sant Agustí church just down from Carrer Hospital toward the Rambla. Don't miss the ancient wooden choir loft at the back of the chapel or a look up into the cupola towering

over the central nave. This quiet refuge is between the Carrer Hospital entrance to the medieval hospital and the Rambla.
