Tucked away deep in nature in whats known as the " ̈Vall de Laguar" lays the Sanctuary of Fontilles.

Founded in 1902 by a Jesuit priest by the name of Carlos Ferri this peaceful location soon became the main hospice for sufferers of leprosy and still is until the present day.


A visit to Fontilles resembles a journey back in time,we have been here on several ocacsions to explore the grounds and admire the old buildings that so attract people in search of a quiet day out or perhaps even to sit and paint water­colours of the surrounding scenary.

Fontilles : Avinguda de Fontilles, 1, 03791 Fontilles, Alicante ( on the road from Orba to Benimaurell CV721)
