Hospital de Sant Pau

This Christmas the façade of Sant Pau will be illuminated in 3D

Like every year, the Catalan Modernist monumental site will be illuminated in the most avant-garde style possible thanks to a digital mapping show that can be seen at dusk.

3D mapping is a technique that consists of decorating a flat surface - in this case the façade of a building - with light and digitally created animations. Basically, mapping involves painting moving pixels on a building with a result that is visually spectacular but with the advantage that it doesn’t leave behind any traces of paint, paper or other materials. Like every year, the Hospital de Sant Pau  Catalan modernist ensemble will celebrate Christmas by illuminating the main façade of the building. From 23 December to 6 January, there will be a spectacular digital mapping show every day  - a family-friendly event that is perfect for the festive season.

Each show will last for half an hour and can be seen in the block of hours between 6 and 10.30pm. The show will feature astonishing animations with colours, volumes, shapes and Christmas motifs that will add a touch of distinction to what is already a great work of art created by the architect Domènech i Montaner.

Additional information is available on the Sant Pau website.
