lazaret, built in 1847 is the oldest
building on the island. Currently being renovated, this picture shows "before
and after". Above the entrances the exterior walls remain unpainted. This
building, along with several others like it, were converted into hospitals
in 1848. Inside, the large rooms would have been furnished with rows of
beds. On the walls, inscriptions left behind by patients are still visible.
There are, even, notes taken by a doctor during a visit with a patient.
