Barcelona, Monestir de Montserrat

Strictly speaking, this scene has no place here - it is clearly rural, even desolate. The building is large enough to take on an urban aspect despite its isolation.

I'd be very curious to know if the wing that extends towards the camera is of a later vintage than the rest of the building. To my eye, its proportions are not satisfactory. The windows are too tall for their width, and the building is too slim for its height. Something more should have been made of the windows on the end, and one of them is missing.
