Hotels in historic buildings in Andalucia

Hotels in historic buildings in Andalucia are modern or traditional hotels housed in restored historic buildings. In the centre of Andalucian towns and villages, you will find beautiful 18th-century 'señorial' houses, or casa-palacios (mansions), which have been converted into hotels of great charm and character. 

Many hotels in historic buildings feature Roman or Moorish artefacts or constructions discovered during restoration works. Some hotels buildings have been reconstructed on Moorish foundations, while others are built onto walls which used to be part of the medieval town or village's defensive muralla.  

In most cases, the main building structure is more recent, and establishing the dates of previous reconstructions is difficult, without doubt each hotel has their own individual charm.
