History of the building
Built for Miro family in 1800s, acquired by Ricard’s father in the 1990s for development. This resulted in a small urbanisation of Santa Tecla – which has paved roads and street lighting.
The house is ram-packed with antique furniture, ornaments and oddities. Quirky paintings, figures, books adorn the walls and lounges, it is a pleasure to browse around and feel the history of the place.
