The Sanatorium in the mountains

May 2013.

As part of our trip from Luxembourg through to France, we were planning to visit an abandoned Hospital in the mountains known as Diablo. The hospital I have no history for so writing will be brief.

The weather this morning was strange. We left sunny climes and travelled 30 miles along winding roads into dense mist and fog with remnants of snow on the sides of the road. When we arrived, it was raining and generally overcast but did brighten up during our visit.

The Hospital appears to have heat and light as there is a generator running out back of this massive establishment and just looks like patients got up one morning and left, never to return.

The place is big enough to have its own chapel, hair salon and library. It may be kept warm or powered as it would be a very impressive hotel and may be resold some day.

There were a few other buildings scattered about and some interesting articles in the basement of one. We left here after 3 hours or so and moved back down to a lower altitude and clearer weather.

Some photos.
