House Of Prayer

Once this small hospital somewhere in Italy was a shelter for children that were suffering from lung diseases. The remote location in the mountains and the numerous surrounding forests are providing healthy air which was necessary to treat tuberculosis and other diseases. In the 1930s this facility was opened.

 

The property with lavishly laid out garden offered enough space for a great number of children. This was a facility of the church, so especially nuns were nursing the sick.
