Paimio Sanatorium, 1933 (Southwest Finland Tuberculosis Sanatorium)

Photo 1. Five circular water pools were built in the yard as part of a meandering serpentine path around which patients walked when exercising. Can you find the locations of all five pools? Only one of the pools still functions, one was excavated this spring from under the soil, and three have been covered with pool-sized wooden terraces.
Photo 2. The surrounding pine forest was also used for recreation by both patients and the entire residential community.
