Sanitarium of Penhas da Saúde (Covilhã)

Knowing Portugal!

The Sanitarium of Rail was designed by the architect Cottinelli Telmo for the Railways where would be hospitalized patients with need of treatment for tuberculosis. It took eight years to be built (1928-1936) and remained closed for so many years.

Since the 80´s was left abandoned, and now it’s led to a state of degradation to the present day.

It’s a pitty because this building have so many stories to tell.
