Casa Consistorial: Town Hall To Hotel

Another of the great ‘before’ photos on display in town stands in front of Hotel Casa Consistorial. The hotel opened just a couple of years ago after being constructed on the site of Fuengirola’s original Casa Consistorial (Town Hall), which had stood on the plaza since 1868. The hotel was under construction when we moved here and I had no idea what had stood there before. It’s about a 30-minute walk from home.


(Click the images for a closer look.)

TOWN HALL GOT A NEW FACADE IN 1959. HERE IT IS IN 1961.
AND NOW A 4-STAR HOTEL.
LOCAL POLICE, 1957.
THE NAME OF THE PLAZA IS LOS REYES CATÓLICOS (THE CATHOLIC KING & QUEEN).
A STATUE OF LOS REYES WAS INSTALLED AFTER THE HOTEL OPENED.
(I’M NEITHER A FAN OF LOS REYES NOR OF THE STATUE.)
JUST LEFT OF CASA CONSISTORIAL, A NEW ARTISAN ICE CREAM SHOP.
MAYBE THIS WILL GET SAN GERALDO TO TAKE THE WALK WITH ME.
