The building, purchased by Father Founder Father Filippo Smaldone in 1902, functioned as Mother House and Institute for the Deaf until the 1960s, today it remains as the Mother House of the Congregation of the Salesian Sisters of the Sacred Hearts and has been restructured as a holiday home and a prayer house. It is an ideal environment, an oasis of peace in the heart of ancient Lecce, sought after by those who take a moment of physical and spiritual relaxation, in the fascination of a "bare" architectural beauty with the recovery of the star vaults, in Lecce stone, and with the installation of a soft light. The place invites to elevate the body and the soul, not only for the architectural lines, for the functionality of the rooms, but above all for the Sanctuary "San Filippo Smaldone", annexed to the House, and for the visit to the places of the Saint, where the Man of God lived from 1902 until 1923, the year of his death.
