Barcelona's Baby Drop-off

Curiosity Barcelona, Spain

A hole in the wall for Barcelona’s unwanted babies Barcelona's Baby Drop-off

Barcelona's baby drop-off is a small wooden cove, located in the heart of the El Raval neighbourhood. The building on which the cove sits was founded in the late 16th century, and became an orphanage in the 19th century. Like many other orphanages and convents of the time, a main feature of the building was its wooden turntable, which allowed those in need to place their babies and spin them anonymously in the arms of a staff member inside the house.

Today, a small wooden cove is the only thing left of Barcelona's orphanage and baby-drop.
