Psychiatry in Spain

Spain has been called
«the cradle of psychiatry» because the
world’s first psychiatric hospital, the Hospital de los Inocentes,
was founded in Valencia in 1404. This foundation initiated a trend, as it was soon followed
by other psychiatric hospitals in Zaragoza (1425), Sevilla and Valladolid
(both in 1436), Mallorca (1457), and
Toledo (1480).
