Hospital de Maudes, catching the last of the sun (best on full screen).

Hospital de Maudes, catching the last of the sun (best on full screen).
The first free hospital in Madrid, funded by a consortium of religious foundations and designed by the famous architect, Antonio Palacios. With the builder, Joaquín Otamendi he built many iconic Madrid buildings of this era (1910-1925). Now it is government offices. It occurs to me that this was completed (1916) just in time for the virus pandemic(s) of a few years later!
This is just around the corner from my flat.

I like the angle with the towers peeping through the trees and shining in the sunlight.

Thank you, Jean. Yes that is exactly what I saw on my regulation 1 km walk this evening! (As from Monday we can walk as far as we want and where we want, within the province. And the parks should re-open, but we'll see! As a high risk individual on at least three counts I will still consider myself to be on Phase 0 for some considerable time to come!

I think you are right. I'm thankful to be in Scotland just now where restrictions are being lifted more slowly than in England but, even so, I and most of my friends are being cautious.

Wonderful picture, especially as it seems as if it was built just in time for the last virus outbreak. I won't be used as a hospital this time round will it?

Creo que eso está por Cibeles y antes fue Correos o Comunicaciones. Al costado estaba el Ministerio de Marina, que hoy creo que está en obras para museo naval.

Exactly, José Manuel. I am interested in that Palacio's work (which I like) is firmly rooted in a style that was perhaps more fashionable in the rest of the world up to about 10-15 years before. And which the First World War killed off ... but not here in Spain!
