Bolivar Clinic

#26. BOLIVAR CLINIC. Calles Simon Bolivar y Juan Montalvo. Built in 1929.

This corner building was constructed by Manuel Felipe Ullauri for his family. It is very similar in materials, design and style to the Manuel Arce Torres House on the same street overlooking Parque Calderon. 

After the owners death, the building was turned into a tenement house, a function it maintained for close to 50 years, and it also provided premises for the former Criminal Investigation Services.

The building was purchased by the Bolivar Clinic Foundation in 1982.

There is a central courtyard, with a glass roof, and also a rooftop auditorium.

Some of the window parapets are decorated with floral and plant motifs in the Louis XIV style.
