  • There are places that you can not miss to visit the province of Cartago. This is one of them. In addition to its historical context as a hospital to serve patients from leprosy in the past, is an interesting attraction in the area to spend a few hours doing the tour of the facilities. The climate of the area is very nice, has secure parking and is accessible also by public transport. Highly recommended

  • Went on a Monday when they were "closed" but they actually were not closed! 1,200 colons/person, so on our way down from Irazú, I'm glad that we stopped! It's an interesting remains of what used to be a sanatorium with lots of buildings to discover. Only giving 3/5 because there was no real parking, there was a ton of construction going on, and I think because it was a Monday there were no tours or anything happening. Either way, an interesting way to spend a half an hour.
  • Lugar turistico de gran interes historico y arquitectonico.
  • Crazy to think this place was filled with crazy or sick people and kids...
  • No too much to view
  • Beautiful place to visit!
