  • Example of quoted social worker, still inhabited. The site is well maintained and has something fascinating.

  • One of the most amazing places I've ever met in this big world. At the same time and living history museum. Very well maintained, promotes a trip back in time when reporting how was born the shelter, as passed by the war and how it brought the rubble! A work of social assistance that has existed for more than 500 years helping those most in need and asking in return little more than daily prayers. Simply unmissable!

  • that preserves the atmosphere of the era in which it was created. An excellent example of social housing, a "village" within the city, built for workers and with all the infrastructure that enable you to maintain decorum and the atmosphere a little old that is its charm.
