Full restoration of the ‘Palacio de la Condesa’ (Palace of the Countess) would be a house of finely proportioned symmetrical facade with high ceilings and tall windows with a central entrance flanked by two tower elements with balconies framing the forested land behind. Panoramic views looking out over the rooftops of the village below and mountains beyond. The palace sits in its own grounds of 3,798 square metres, all with a stone wall around with a stone double arch entrance to the grounds.
The ‘Palacio de la Condesa’ dates form 1903 and is recognised in the local listing of heritage buildings for its cultural and historical interest. ‘Casas de indianos’ were highly detailed, elegant properties built throughout the 19th Century by families returning from the Americas having made their fortune.
