Eglesia i convent de Pompeia, Barcelona, Spain

Enric Sagnier Villavecchia
Date Built
Avenida Diagonal 450

The foundation stone of this church and Franciscan convent was laid in 1908.  The church has three naves separated by slender columns.  The stone facade features sculptural work by Josep Llimona, including a relief on the door and a picture of St. Francis of Assisi in the upper gable.  The adjoining convent is more sober, appropriate to its Franciscan occupants.  Its facade is composed of brick with stone dressing.  One of the highlights of the convent is the large library over three floors.
