9 lighthouses across Almería mooted for hotel use

Puertos de España, the public company that owns and operates Spanish lighthouses, has proposed 9 lighthouses across Almería province for conversion into hotels.

It’s part of a project setup by the company to change the use of some of its historic lighthouses in order to save the buildings.

Adra, Punta de Los Baños, El Sabinal, Roquetas de Mar, Castillo de San Telmo, Cabo de Gata, La Polacra, Mesa Roldán and Garrucha lighthouses have all been included in the list, which has been sent to the Ministry of Development for consultation.

Some of these are already used for social events or the like (Garrucha hosts a museum inside, for example). Not all of them will be hotels, of course.

The central government has given its backing to a new company called Faros de España, which will operate these hotels in the same way that the Parador chain of hotels works – ancient buildings turned into modern hotels to pay for their upkeep.
