La Fructuosa

Founded at the beginning of the 20th century, the 150-year-old building was a popular hostel called “La Española”, known locally as la Fonda de la Fructuosa, which was the name of the owner. It was a guesthouse with 4 small bedrooms plus the owner´s own room, a dining room and a small kitchen. In the basement were the stables, a rudimentary lavatory and the winery with all the machinery necessary to produce wines and liquors, a —metre press, a room with 4 large barrels and a distillery.

Hotel Nacional

Hotel Nacional, sadly closed in 2002; this family-run establishment opened in 1827 and was a local institution for almost two centuries. Known as Hotel Inglés due to the sheer number of British officers stationed in Gibraltar who visited, traveling along the old Roman road, Camino de Gibraltar, to enjoy the cool mountain air, the hotel then changed its name during the Civil War. The hotel played host to a number of famous guests throughout its long existence, from royalty to writers and politicians: an Austrian Archduke (in 1888), the Marques de Larios, La Chata (Isabel de Borbon, sister of King Alfonso XIII), bullfighter El Algabeño, painter Maruja Mallo (in 1927), playwright Francisco Nieva, ex-Empress of Persia, Farah Diba (in 1991), singer Sade, and ex-President of the Junta de Andalucia Manuel Chaves.
