HOTEL HIGHLIGHT:

CORTIJO TORRE DE LA REINA

A NATIONAL MONUMENT The location now called TORRE DE LA REINA, was the rearguard settlement for one of the camps of king Ferdinand III the Saint, during the conquest of Sevilla. In the last years of the 13th century and the first of the 14th it belonged to Queen María de Molina, which explains the origin of its name. The enormous relevance of the Fortress lies in the fact that, besides its being a royal property, it is the only rural building from those times within Sevilla´s environment. The need to exploit the property made it necessary to enlarge the ensemble without taking into account its military nature. Hence, a rural Country Estate in the Renaissance style was organized, which acted as a model for other Country Estates and urban Houses in Sevilla. Due to the beauty of the surrounding Countryside and its location not far away from Sevilla (12 km.), the ensemble has been converted into a small hotel with a small number of rooms. The visitor, however, finds here history and nature in full. At present, the whole ensemble has been declared National Monument. 11 rooms, car park, individual air-conditioning and heating, fax service, express-laundry, direct telephone line in rooms, satellite TV, swimming pool, gardens, conference and meeting rooms for up to 700 people. Within a few kilometres you find; golf, horse-riding, clay pigeon shooting, flying field.
