The Cortijo del Arte hotel was built in the 1400’s by the Arabs who resided in Spain during this time. Originally constructed as a horse and cow farm and then was given to a knight who fought nobly in the war. It has then been converted into a hotel, bar and restaurant and welcomes clients from all over the globe.

Originally it was an Arab «Alqueria» and from the year 1,400 became the Cortijo Casablanca with hundreds of hectares of orange, lemon, and mango trees. In 2012 it became the Hotel Cortijo del Arte respecting the essence of a traditional Andalusian farmhouse.
