Works in the church of the School of Jesús-Maria

When Sant Andreu del Palomar was an independent village, not yet annexed to Barcelona, the young Gaudí undertook one of his first known works: diverse decorative elements for the church of the School of Nuns of Jesús-Maria.
It consists of a mosaic, wall lamps and the choir stalls of the temple, the last two withdrawn when the congregation abandoned the place and moved to Sant Gervasi.
The church, dedicated to Saint Pacià, still conserves the floor mosaic that covers the whole surface and forms quite an elaborate geometric drawing.
