Red Cross Hospital

This post is also available in: nlDutch

This Red Cross Hospital is an abandoned children’s home in Italy. The buildings feature an impressive chapel with a big red cross painted onto the ceiling which is now somewhat faded. The big dormitories still contain many metal beds and give some creepy feelings to the buildings. There are even some classrooms where the children could get some lessons recovering from their ilness. The building is well preserved considering it closed in the 1980s. The Red Cross Hospital is a very nice urbex location to explore!

At 1100 metres above sea level the air in this region of Italy is very clean and pure – so much so the area is famous for its healthy air. For a time many facilities were built high up in the mountains to take advantage of this. Usually owned by various religious orders, they would welcome children and their families during the summer holidays.

The complex is build around some nice gardens where the children who stayed there could get some rest. Up into the mountains they could enjoy the view.

The road to the hospital was leading through some small villages. We had to wait several times for passing car’s because the roads where so small.
