Niño Jesús University Children's Hospital, birthplace of paediatrics in Spain, has been a national benchmark in paediatric healthcare since it was founded in 1877. Construction began on its current headquarters in 1879 and they were opened just two years later, in 1881. The hospital can be found in the Retiro district, near the famous park.
Still an emblematic building, it was constructed in Neo-mudéjar style, by architect Francisco Jareño y Alarcón, author of other important works, such as the National Library on Paseo Recoletos. It was awarded gold medals at exhibitions in Antwerp, Paris, London, Vienna and Barcelona, in recognition of its originality, beauty and functionality.
