Hospice des Vieillards de Nivelles

Built: 1867

Abandoned: 2005

Demolished: 2015

Nijvel, Belgium

The history of this hospice goes all the way back to 1867. The hospice had 91 beds in a three story building. The highlight of the building is the old chapel.

Most of the old building has been demolished, the chapel is still standing and protected during my visit. A new owner has to give the chapel a public purpose. But selling the old building is not easy, a pipe leak filled the cellar with oil and the building is damaged by local youth and nature. The hospice was abandoned in 2005, the residents moved to a new building in the same city. The site was demolished in 2015.
