The second of the two larger buildings to be restored was built between 1905 and 1912. The original use was for General Surgery for females.
The presence of stone sculpture is very important throughout the site. Capitals, floral details, corbels and structures all designed by the architect himself complete the varied decoration of the complex. Details such as delicate flowers embedded in the brick walls, niches, floral crowns on the capitals – each one different, despite their apparent uniformity – and reliefs on ventilation shafts are a sample of the varied work of the stonemasons.
The details are superb. All the shrines, angels, heads of angels and gargoyles in the form of animals on the complex were the work of Gargallo.
