Gaudí in austere mood

Gaudí did not start the work, but when he accepted it, he was faced with a project already under way and the floor plan in place. Only an architect of his genius could turn it into such an extraordinary and functional building within two years and on a very tight budget.

The materials and shapes used in the building are very simple, with parabolic arches on the exterior façade and corridor-cloisters. There is some wonderful wrought ironwork and religious symbols on the door, although the really curious thing is that it has no lock and cannot be opened from the outside.
