Every once in a while, an extraordinary property comes to the market. This is your chance to become the owner of a piece of history of the east coast of Almeria. It sits at the foot of the Sierra de los Filabres at half an hour away from the coast. It is the Mezquita of Serena, near the sought after village of Bedar.
What remains of the mezquita is a ruin. A ruin, though, which tells you about the time when the last Muslims were celebrating their rites there. How later, in 1505 it became a Christian hermitage, until, after centuries of being a place of worship, the mezquita was sold and converted into an olive oil mill.
The stone and brick masonry give to this large single nave building great architectural solidity
Today, the ruin is a privately owned property and is for sale. It is a tempting renovation project and it is part of the Andalusian Historical Heritage. Therefore, the Council of Culture will have to approve your project and make sure the characteristic architectural features are preserved.
The size of the mezquita ruin is 207 square meters on a plot of 286 sq.m. . It finds itself in the center of a quiet, traditional hamlet, called Serena. Serena is a 5 minutes drive from Bedar, where you have restaurants, bars, 2 small supermarkets and all major services.
If you renovate this magnificent building, just imagine…you will get up in the morning, look through a horseshoe arch and watch the Andalusian sun pour down on the fields where the olive trees and the cacti grow…
