Pepe Hara's House

The inside of Pepe Hara's manor house has a Sevillian feel to it, but its exterior has a modernist touch that contrasts with the rest of the buildings on San Bartolomé Street in Aguadulce.

Balconies with wrought iron railings and verandas adorn its yellow facade, a colour that contrasts with the white of the simpler and lower surrounding houses. This building, located on one of the city's main streets, was built in 1930 and is one of the most important examples of the importance once enjoyed by the town, which reached a population of 3,500 inhabitants. Sadly, the onset of the Civil War and the hardships of the following years put an end to the population boom and caused it to drop by almost half, due to the emigration of many of the families that lived there.

Pepe Hara's house is known for its chamfered, ironwork balconies and was the site of Aguadulce's first farmers' casino.
