OLD PEOPLE'S HOME

Sueca, Valencia



Old people's Home


From local architect Bonaventura Ferrando Castells, this building stands out for its combination of the caravista tile and the masonry stone, as well as all the wrought-iron railings with vegetal motifs. The ensemble consists of a rectangular floor plan with five naves, a chimney in the center and a chapel. One of its main features is the "Round Hall" (octagonal).


The neo-Mudejar-style chapel with a Latin cross plan with a transept and a cannon roof in the central nave, a star-shaped dome and terceletes to the presbytery. It also has three choirs supported by large wooden beams with supports in the form of dragons engraved on timber. Polychrome stained glass in the chapel. The main entrance presents the features of a Gothic church with towers, pointed arches and Mudejar arches. The building is characterized by the ornamental expressiveness of the tiles.


CURRENT USE: Popularly known as the Asylum of the Old people, it is intended for the care and residence of the homeless elderly.
