Thanks for sharing this. The main thing was bonding time with mom. Maybe after the renovations, it might be so much better.

I personally shy away from really old buildings because yes! I believe in apparitions :)


HA! This is exactly how I pictured the sanitarium in "The Road to Wellville." What a quirky place.

Lol. Yes, indeed, Lola. This is a place for apparitions.

But I somehow feel that given the nature of the place and most Argentine's I've met, it would be a very pleasant apparition.

I wonder if they had a machine where they immerse you in water to your neck then send electricity through it?

Part of this also reminded me of Spirited Away (going back to Lola's comment too). Bath house for the spirits. The back rooms (those not in service) had these dirty tubs with a handle to pull for water, too.


While putting it in context of Spirited Away, the whole concept seems a lot nicer, however, I can feel the history of the place from here! :)


Wow, this is so cool! I've never seen a place that reminds me so much of The Shining. I would LOVE to visit. Thanks for allowing a glimpse into such a unique place and time.

Is this the setting of Salteña filmaker Lucrecia Martel's "La Niña Santa"? It reminds me of it - particularly the dining room and the pool. Great photos lady!


Given the age of the building it still seems well preserved. I would love this see this place when it gets restored.
