"Sydney Hospital" Sydney Hospital Tip by Gypsystravels

Sydney Hospital, Sydney: 6 reviews and 10 photos

 
 

So I really didn't explore the hospital, but located outside the side entrance of the hospital is the staute of "Il Porcellino (a boar). I have seen this statue in Florence where it is said that by rubbing the boar you will have some sort of luck. I guess those individuals that are sick come and rub the boar hoping to heal or for a speedy recovery? I am not sure why else this boar would be here.

I don't know much more about this hospital.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
