Description

This hospital was founded by Justino de Neve in the 17th century It is in the Baroque style and is made up of two areas. In the first, the residence created for Leonardo de Figueroa, there are original elements, like the galleries, arranged a circle and decorated with tiles, that lead to the fountain, or the staircase covered with an elliptical vault decorated with baroque plasterwork. The second part of the building is the church with a single nave and barrel vaulting, with windows and transverse arches. Inside can be found works by Valdés Leal, of which the fresco painting on the presbytery vault is outstanding. The creations of Lucas Valdés and Virgilio Maltoni occupy the main reredos. In addition, the reliefs were created by Martínez Montañés some sculptures by Pedro Roldán. It is currently the headquarters of the Focus Abengoa Foundation and cultural exhibitions and concerts, are held there, particularly the organ concerts held in the old chapel.
