Designed at the end of the 19th century by Rodrigo Berquó to be the new D. Carlos I hospital.
Berquó wanted to make Caldas da Rainha into a truly European spa resort, but the “Pavilions in the Park” did not succeed in fulfilling this function. For over 100 years, they were used as a military barracks, a police station and a secondary school.
At present, they are out of use and show some signs of the passage of time.
This built complex, in an unusual architectural style and part of the Spa Hospital of Caldas da Rainha, is regarded as one of the city’s main landmarks.
