Fontilles recently published the full English version of the Fontilles and leprosy in Spain portal of the Miguel de Cervantes Digital Library.
This new English portal includes the Fontilles Historical Archive and the Digital Library Miguel de Cervantes. They were developed by Fontilles and the University of Alicante in collaboration with the Sasakawa Health Foundation.
The portal has the double goal of protecting Fontilles’ heritage and presenting that legacy to society, as an example and inspiration for the struggle against social exclusion in the 21st century. The portal has historical and scientific value as it showcases more than a hundred years of recovered, digitised and edited exhibitions of journals, works, images, testimonies, and documents. It reflects on all of the social, economic, cultural and religious elements of the history of Spain during this period of time.
These materials are now available to anyone interested in them and, above all, to those who may be interested in the history of Fontilles and leprosy in Spain.
