your personal ID card/passport/driving licence. ALWAYS GO
FOR VISITS AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE ESTABLISHED TIME.

Thursdays at 10.00 am. Each visit lasts 15 minutes. You may
choose to visit on any three of the five days at the appointed

it is your loved one who books
the rest of the visits. There are no visits on feast days.

minutes. This is called a "contact visit". This
may be either on Saturday or on Sunday. On both days in the
morning the visit starts at 10.00 am; and on Saturday afternoon
at 4.00 pm. No visit is possible on Sunday evening. Your
loved one must book this visit beforehand, otherwise no visit
may be held.

However, there is also a short-cut very close to the Paola
square. It is the side-entrance to the Handicaps' Rehabilitation
Centre, open only during working hours (No.14 on map).

pm and 3.30 pm, every day
except on Sunday afternoons and feast days. If you need to
take more personal belongings these must be presented at the
