Welcome to Hacienda De Abajo

Hacienda De Abajo The Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is the first hotel to be built in Tazacorte. It consists of four buildings surrounding an inner garden, once the garden of the estate, within a walled enclosure. It is accessed through a magnificent façade with an ancient two-leaf wooden door.\n \nLocated in the historic centre of Tazacorte, the former Main House of Tazacorte is part of the Canary Islands heritage. In 2010 and 2011 it has undergone careful restoration by architect María del Carmen Alemañ García. She suppressed the twentieth century architectural additions which distorted its façade, and has recovered its original appearance. A section of two-storey balconies has been added, which are both open and closed, with closed parapets supported by straight pillars, a hipped Arabic tilework roof and two towers, one in the middle and one in the corner with a magnificent sea view, which enhance the stately and almost military tower house-like character of the former homes of the lords of the Hacienda de Abajo. This is a very common practice in traditional Canarian architecture. In accordance with current requirements, new sections are added to the original rectangular building which is usually of limited surface, ending up with a U or L-shaped construction.
