Psychiatric Hospital of Paredes de Coura

There is a beauty hard to describe in abandoned buildings …  Probably a mixture of mysticism with a past that allows us to tell you a story! The history of that building.

I have a certain fascination in getting into abandoned buildings can take gorgeous photos but at the same time I get a melancholy feeling of knowing that something so beautiful is deteriorating.

    1. Yes, it was founded in 1934 as a sanatorium worked fine there till 1974. From them the number of patients were reducing. In 1990 they converted in to a psychiatric hospital and closed in 2002. In the time I visit still had some objects and patitents files dated from the begining in there.
