Every so often, tourists have the opportunity to visit an attraction that is more than just a pretty sight – the Incurabili Hospital of Naples is just such an attraction. Built in 1521, it represents the dreams and ambitions of its founder, Maria Longo, whose fantastic story has inspired people of the region for generations. Undergoing total paralysis in the early part of the century, she later underwent a “miraculous cure” and thereafter decided to devote her entire life to helping the sick.
It marked the first institution of its kind in the country, and one of the first medical schools to be established as well. Moreover, the effects of World War 2 can be clearly seen in the preservation of some of the buildings, due to much of the hospital suffering during air raids.
