Guided Tours of Castillito of Sorrows during the weekend (22/03/2012)

During this weekend, citizens will have the opportunity to visit the premises of Castillito of Sorrows, recently restored and fitted out as the local police headquarters.

The tours are free and they shall be guided in groups of ten people, to allow movement by the spiral staircase connects the three floors.

The schedule will be Saturday, March 24, from 10.30 to 13.30 hours in the morning and 19 to 19.30 hours in the afternoon.

On Sunday they will meet the visitors, only in the morning, from 10.30 to 13.30 hours.

The Castillito by architect Tomás Rico, who should also be other unique buildings in the city, as the Palace Hall.

It was built in 1899 on behalf of the operator and trader Peter Conesa Calderon as a gift to her granddaughter Antonia, that we used as a doll house and stay to greet her friends.

When she went to Madrid grew up and married the Marquis de Source Sol, Jose de la Figuera de la Cerda, establishing marriage and residence within the Castillito to late 50's years of the twentieth century.

He was later abandoned and transferred to the City in the 80's, which conditioned its gardens and initially prevented the disappearance of the building.

Its recent restoration and rehabilitation as the local police headquarters has been restored to its former glory, not only in their facades and towers, reminiscent of the castles of fairy tales, but in its modernist interior decoration, flooring, moldings and paintings on the look.

It also highlights the endless spiral staircase that connects all floors of the building from the basement where it was born an ancient passageway to the dormers and turrets.
