Expert review of Hospital de los Venerables

Stunning architecture and fabulous art in this most unique "retirement home".

Founded as a hospital and refuge for aged priests, this 17th-century baroque building is most notable for the symmetry of its central patio, with its trees and sunken fountain, and surrounding colonnade supporting a second storey gallery. In fact the building itself is worth a visit, even without the exhibits. The church alongside features paintings by Valdés and Lucas Leal, and sculptures by Pedro Roldan. There are also concerts and temporary exhibitions.

Price advice: 

4.75 euros, or 2.40 euros (pensioners and students).
