THE Leprosy Sanatorium Untouched By The Pandemic

Fontilles is a small walled town, hidden in the mountains, in the natural area of the Vall de Laguar, in the province of Alicante. The ‘garden of Eden’ is home to a private foundation that opened in 1909. In the 1950s was inhabited by 450 leprosy patients, whereas today, just twelve patients remain there, with the condition eradicated in Spain, only around ten or twelve new cases are diagnosed each year, and can be cured.
