Sanatório Infantil

THE ABANDONED SANATORIUM IN PORTUGAL


The sanatorium in better days

This building is ‘Sanatório Infantil’ an old children’s sanatorium that was built in the late 1930s. The Grand Opening took place in 1940. It was renamed ‘Sanatório António Tapia’ in 1948.

The Sanatório Infantil was built for the treatment of children suffering from tuberculosis. This disease is very contagious, so the children were isolated from their families and friends for a long time. The town was famous for its sanatoria, Caramulo housed many because of the fresh air. They were built by a doctor called Jerónimo Lacerda.

Today the abandoned buildings are owned by the Portuguese government. The beautiful building is in a very bad state. Floors have collapsed due to weather influences. There are no future plans for the sanatorium.

The photos from Sanatório Infantil were shot in 2018. More Portugese sanatoria here, here and here.
