The folly outside San Miguel

The Castillo de Conesa on the Rebate road from San Miguel de Salinas was once a Yeso factory.

Fifteen years ago Don Antonio Conesa bought the building and surrounding land which includes 300 metres of caves and underground tunnels with a vision to make his new purchase the (El) Alhambra of the area.

The castle itself is still being renovated and will be open to the public as a museum next year. By all accounts it will be well worth a visit because the interior is apparently stunning.
