This is a very grand building; however it is rather plain and uninteresting. It actually looks much younger than it is. It currently is a cultural centre for Ubeda locals with a library, exhibition halls and other cultural spaces. It is a little way from...More

The building is stunning with lovely gardens. There was a photo and painting exhibition on with very poignant photos of people in India, which made you realize how lucky you are. The water colour paintings were fantastic

The hospital is an interesting historic building and as we were nearby decided to visit. Nothing inside was that compelling and I wouldn't suggest going a long distance to visit. Took a photo and that was it.

The old hospital is worth a visit outside the old city of Ubeda. It has a relaxing atmosphere. Their are different salons. Unfortunatly they are not Always open. But give it a try, there is lot to see during a tourist visit.
