The succursale hospital, built as a military hospital, now known as the “Quarantaine building” was erected in 1856 east of the actual Quarantaine building (now used as the Curaçaos Museum) on Mundo Nobo. (see appendix from MD Ozinga, “The monuments of Curacao in words and images” page 120-123). While the latter, three years older military hospital on Mundo Nobo, is characteristic of the Curaçao style, the style of the present building is neoclassical . It is the earliest dated example of classicism on the island. Characteristic of this style is the block-shaped building volume, the recessed and protruding corner blocks, the profiled cornice and the pediments above the window openings of the second story. From 1941 to 1961 the building was used by the ADC (Analytical Diagnostic Center). Later the building was used by the Curacao Academy of Visual Arts.
Mundo Nobo is close to Piscadera Bay. This is a bay with calm waters, located about 10 minutes from Willemstad. There are detached houses and there is a supermarket. The Piscadera Bay Resort is also located in the bay. Here you find yourself in a space of tranquility with tropical bungalows. All major hotel chains are located here, such as Dreams, Floris Suites and Marriot. Other beautiful seaside resorts are also close to Mundo Nobo, such as the Corendon Mangrove Beach Resort and the Royal Palm Resort.
Curaçao has many diving options, pearly white beaches, hospitable culture and various outdoor activities. Mundo Novo is therefore a perfect base to relax and enjoy everything that Curaçao has to offer.
