Hospital de la Caridad

The Charity Hospital (Hospital de la Caridad) is an exceptional and unique monument to the golden age of the baroque art. It is an architectonic complex and it serves as home of the “Hermandad de la Santa Caridad”.

The Hermandad de la Santa Caridad was founded in the city, by the 15th century, and one of its main purposes was to look after the sick and the abandoned ones, as well as to bury those who were killed and drowned by the authorities.

It is estimated that the construction of the three main rooms took place during the reign of Alfonso X. By 1644 the construction of a new chapel within the hospital takes place as the original one needed to be replaced due to its damages.
